The NHL-leading Ducks (33-8-5) recalled John Gibson from their American Hockey League affiliate in Norfolk, Va., and sent Frederik Andersen to the minors in a swap Friday of their top goaltending prospects. Jonas Hiller, winner of a club-record 12 consecutive starts, did not play in the Ducks’ 4-3 victory Thursday over the Nashville Predators. The Ducks have won five consecutive games and 15 of their last 16. Ryan Getzlaf had two goals, his 21st and 22nd, and an assist Thursday for his sixth three-point game of the season. Corey Perry scored his team-leading 25th goal and Teemu Selanne recorded the 109th game-winning goal of his Hall of Fame career, tying him with Brendan Shanahan for fifth place on the NHL’s all-time list. The Coyotes are 21-13-9 after falling 4-1 to the Minnesota Wild on Thursday.
