Building lasting momentum is something the Ducks hadn’t done much of this season as they turned the page on 2017 but, at <a href=""></a> least on <a href="">Joe Greene Youth Jersey</a> the calendar’s final day, that box was finally checked.

Facing the basement-dwelling Arizona Coyotes in a New Year’s Eve matinee, Cam Fowler snapped a third-period tie with 8:09 remaining and Jakob Silfverberg added an insurance goal Sunday as the Ducks scored three times to pull away for a 5-2 win at Honda Center.

Getting the puck in the high slot with just Coyotes goalie Antti Raanta to beat in a 2-2 game, Fowler did so with a rising shot that hit the crossbar and banked in. Even though he also scored Friday against Calgary, the Ducks’ defenseman thought he could have put away other good looks.

“Obviously it’s a prime scoring area,” Fowler said. “I felt like last game, I had good chances. I didn’t feel like I made the most out of them. I kind of gave them away and just quickly got it on net instead of really trying to bear down.

“So I just focused on bearing down tonight and trying to put it through him instead of just picking a spot. I was happy to see it go in.”

Silfverberg made it a two-goal lead with 2:47 remaining and Antoine Vermette added an empty-net goal to finish off a three-point night. Ryan Kesler and Ryan Getzlaf each had two assists. In Kesler’s case, those were his first two points in his third game back from major hip <a href=""></a> surgery.

Rickard Rakell scored twice to stay in a blistering state while John Gibson made 23 saves as the Ducks won for the <a href="">Authentic Mel Blount Jersey</a> fourth time in five games to cap a three-game homestand. They’re now off to western Canada to continue their stretch of seven straight games against the Pacific Division.

“We know that we have to start stringing together some wins right now,” Fowler said. “Trying to bank as many points as we can. We’re a team that once we start doing things the right way and we see some of the results happening, we feel like we can compete with anybody.

“These last two games at home were very important for us before going out on a tough western road trip. So hopefully we can carry some of that momentum along with us.”

The Ducks (18-14-8) are making a habit of starting fast. They’ve scored first in five straight games, with all coming no later than eight minutes elapsed in the first. Rakell jumped out again, as he did <a href="">Jason Kelce Womens Jersey</a> just 1:40 into their game Wednesday against Vegas.

Good fortune often interjects itself into a player that is hot. Just four minutes in, Rakell got free and put a shot on goal that Raanta stopped. The puck bounced right back and struck the skate of Coyotes star defender Oliver Ekman-Larsson as he defended Rakell, ricocheting into the net.

“What we try to do is we try to make sure that we have a starting point,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “You have no starting point if you have a poor first period. Then you’re <a href=""></a> going to play catch-up. We <a href="">Germain Ifedi Womens Jersey</a> don’t want to play catch-up <a href=""></a> if we don’t have to.

“We feel if we can get off the mark and get attacking, then we have a hockey club that can be dangerous.”

That made goals in a career-high five straight games for Rakell. He didn’t do that in his 33-goal season of a year ago, coming close with seven goals in nine games during one stretch and five in six of scorching run.

But this wasn’t as clean of an effort by the <a href="">David Sharpe Authentic Jersey</a> Ducks. Sloppy at times in their own zone against the NHL’s worst team, it would hurt them midway through the period.

Arizona tied it on a power play created when the Ducks were caught with too many men on the ice. Francois Beauchemin failed to clear the puck down <a href=""></a> the ice, with Coyotes defenseman Alex Goligoski intercepting it and giving the puck to Brendan Perlini.

Perlini operated behind a screen provided by Beauchemin and Arizona’s Christian Dvorak. His hard wrist shot went in on Gibson’s short side for a 1-1 tie as the goalie couldn’t pick up the puck until it was too late.
