Rickard Rakell scored twice, John Gibson stopped 21 shots and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Arizona Coyotes 5-1 on Friday night.

Kevin Bieksa, Jakob Silfverberg and Antoine Vermette also scored for the Coyotes.

Jamie McGinn scored for Arizona. Louis Domingue stopped 18 of 21 shots in the first period before being replaced by Justin Peters, who gave up two goals on 12 shots over the final 40 minutes.

After stewing over consecutive home defeats in which they were outscored 9-1, the Ducks responded with a dominant opening 20 minutes in which they thoroughly controlled play.

Bieksa and Rakell scored 2:54 apart midway through the first, and Silfverberg made it 3-0 in the final minute of the period.
