Chychrun hat trick lifts Coyotes to OT win against Ducks


ANAHEIM — Jakob Chychrun completed his first NHL hat trick at 1:47 of overtime to lift the Arizona Coyotes to a 3-2 win against the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Sunday.

Chychrun, a defenseman, scored his third of the game with a wrist shot from beyond the right circle after a pass from Clayton Keller.

Adin Hill made 18 saves in his sixth consecutive start for the Coyotes (18-15-5), who swept a two-game set and have won five of six.

Trevor Zegras had two assists for his first NHL multipoint game for the Ducks (11-21-7), who have lost three in a row.

John Gibson returned for Anaheim after missing three games with an upper-body injury and made 28 saves, including a penalty shot against Keller six seconds before Chychrun’s game-winner.

Chychrun tied it 2-2 with a wrist shot from the left circle at 15:09 of the third period.

Sam Carrick made his season debut on an emergency loan from San Diego of the American Hockey League and gave the Ducks a 1-0 lead at 8:31 of the first period. Zegras won the puck behind the net and fed Carrick for a one-timer.

Chychrun tied it 1-1 21 seconds later when he brought the puck down the right side and scored from the right circle at 8:58.

Derek Grant redirected a shot from Zegras from the high slot to give Anaheim a 2-1 lead at 14:47 of the first period.

Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf did not play because of an upper-body injury sustained during a 4-2 loss to the Coyotes on Friday. Forward Troy Terry was a late scratch with an upper-body injury.
