Video: Ducks' Jones Scores Then Hell Broke Loose vs Coyotes

The Anaheim Ducks and Arizona Coyotes battled it out on Monday night and if you ask Ducks forward Max Jones he's going to tell you he has a sore back and damn it felt good to score on Monday night.

As you'll see from the clip, Jones received several stern cross-checks from 'Yotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson and while the Refs were busy letting it go, Jones was busy getting himself into better position to score.

Sure enough he potted a tap in and then let Ekman-Larsson have it.

While no haymakers were thrown it was nice to see old-timer Ryan Getzlaf right in there mixing it up with the younger crowd.

As per the game notes

The buzz heading into the game was the much-anticipated debut of Anaheim top prospect Trevor Zegras. Big hits, fights and bunches of goals became the focus once the puck dropped.

Arizona goalie Darcy Kuemper was among five players penalized during a lengthy melee that set the physical tone early. The first period ended with two fights and the teams combined for 46 penalty minutes overall. The Ducks scored twice in the opening period and had a 3-0 lead early in the second.

Arizona stormed back to tie it in the second period with three goals in less than four minutes and went ahead in the third on Dvorak's second goal. Derick Brassard also scored for Arizona and Kuemper stopped 24 shots.

Cam Fowler, Jakob Silfverberg and Max Jones scored for Anaheim. John Gibson had 21 saves.

The melee above ended up with two tilts at the end of the first, one between Coyotes Lawson Crouse and Ducks Derek Grant and the other between Jones and Coyotes forward John Hayden.
