Ryan’s goal gives Ducks victory over Coyotes

GLENDALE – Bobby Ryan knocked in the deciding goal in a shootout and the Anaheim Ducks stayed in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race with a 3-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night.

Todd Marchant had a pair of primary assists for the Ducks, who climbed into a tie with idle Dallas and Minnesota for ninth place with 74 points. The top eight teams in the conference will make the playoffs.

Anaheim, coming off a 4-3 overtime victory at home over Nashville on Wednesday night, took a 2-1 lead when Phoenix’s Kyle Turris deflected the puck into his own net with 7:01 to play.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
