Arizona Coyotes will take on the Florida Panthers tonight in search of their first win in Mullett Arena. The 5-3-1 Panthers come into Tempe on a 1-2 skid the last three games, which is the same as the Coyotes.
Coyotes Set to Play Third Game in Tempe…
The Coyotes are set to play their third game in Tempe, the fans have been eager for a home victory. Coming close in both the opener last Friday and against the Rangers Sunday.
Losing both games in a final score of 3-2, with both contest coming down to the wire. Arizona will need a big game from whomever takes the net tonight.
On offense will need to take advantage of power play opportunities, and look for spots where they can get aggressive. The Panthers give up an average of 3 runs per game.
Coyotes Need to Score More…
I know it sounds easy enough to just say they need to score more, however, they have struggled all season to get over the mark of 2 goals in a game.
Which has been part of the reason they lost the last two. The NHL is at a level we have never seen before, skill wise. The days of 2 goals getting you a win are over.
You can count on the face that you need 3-5 goals in this era of hockey that is being played to be successful. Look for the veterans to step up tonight against Florida and give the young guys a boost.
Tonight will be big as the Coyotes have been competitive the last week and are trying to get over the hump of losing.
Puck drop will be at 8:00pm local time at Mullett Arena in Tempe, Arizona.
