Michalek, acquired in a trade with Minnesota on Aug. 26, took a
pass across the slot from Oleg Saprykin and wristed the winner past
Anaheim's Ilya Bryzgalov to help Phoenix (2-6-0) snap a six-game
exhibition losing streak.
Mike Ricci led the Coyotes from behind in the third period,
scoring on a deflection with 5:15 left to force the extra session.
Jeff Taffe and Shane Doan also had goals for Phoenix, and Curtis
Joseph stopped 21 shots for the win.
Lupul's goal, a quick wrister that went top shelf over Joseph's
glove with 1:19 to go in the second, took away the momentum Phoenix
built with two goals earlier in the period.
The Ducks scored on two of their first three power plays,
building a 2-0 lead.
Phoenix special teams, which held San Jose scoreless on 10 power
plays the night before, weren't able to handle a 5-on-3 power play
that began after Chris McAllister drew a 10-minute misconduct and
seven minutes of team penalties for instigating and fighting with
Anaheim's Kip Brennan 2:55 into the game.
Nineteen seconds later, Mike Leclerc was penalized for kneeing,
and Niedermayer scored 4:39 in.
The Ducks, who outshot Phoenix 13-6 in the first period, added
another goal on a shot by Andy McDonald with 5:02 left in the
Taffe and Doan tied it at two by scoring 1:57 apart late in the
second, with Brett Hull assisting on both goals.
