Henrique extended his point streak to six games (five goals, three assists).

Vatrano stopped a rolling centering pass from Terry before scoring with a slap shot from the high slot for a 1-0 lead at 17:38 of the first period.

Terry ended a 16-game goal drought when he scored at 3:34 of the second period for a 2-0 lead.

Terry brought the puck through all three zones and scored short side with a wrist shot from the bottom of the right circle.

During the play, Coyotes defenseman Juuso Valimaki slashed Anaheim forward Max Jones in the back, leading to a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for Valimaki.

The Ducks scored 45 seconds into the penalty when Fowler hit the net with a wrist shot for a 3-0 lead.

Trevor Zegras assisted on Fowler’s goal to extend his NHL career-best point streak to six games (five goals, five assists).

Fowler scored on a slap shot to stretch the lead to 4-0 at 3:02 of the third period ahead of the Coyotes’ late surge.
