Coyotes 1, Mighty Ducks 0
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) _ Mikhail Shtalenkov stopped 32 Anaheim shots Wednesday night as Phoenix shut out the Mighty Ducks 1-0, for the Coyotes’ first exhibition win.
Shane Doan scored the game’s only goal, an unassisted slap shot past Anaheim goalie Guy Hebert at 6:17 of the second period. Doan’s score came only seconds after the Coyotes (1-3-2) returned to full strength following a boarding penalty against Travis Green.
Shtalenkov’s finest moments came in the second period, when he withstood a barrage of shots with the Mighty Ducks (2-3-1) on a two-man advantage.
Anaheim’s best scoring chance during the power play occurred when Teemu Selanne fired a 15-foot shot that caromed off the right goal post.
Both teams have two exhibitions remaining, including a rematch on Saturday at Phoenix.
