The Arizona Coyotes will play three games this week against three tough opponents. Obviously we will have pregame previews provided for you the day of the game, so now we will offer you an overarching look at the team for the week.
The week of October 14th through the 21st is an interesting week for the Coyotes. After having a very slow start to the season the team is continuing at a slow pace with the schedule. The Coyotes have no back to back games this week, and have only three matchups, with two at home. While next week will include four games, all on the road.
The Arizona Coyotes need to take advantage of these three games ahead of them. Currently in their last two games they have captured three of a possible four points. Against three non division rivals, the Coyotes need to win.
Let’s take a look at the three teams the Coyotes are facing off against.
Tuesday : Arizona Coyotes at Winnipeg Jets
The Coyotes will start things off in Winnipeg on Tuesday night. The Coyotes, who originated in Winnipeg as the original Winnipeg Jets, will want to collect a win against the team. The Jets recently lost 7-2 against the Penguins in their last game.
Thursday : Nashville Predators at Arizona Coyotes
The Arizona Coyotes will continue their season against another Central Division team, the Nashville Predators, at home. Nashville has been a great NHL team through the last few years. The Coyotes should take that game as a test to how playoff ready they are as a team. However considering Nashville lost to LA earlier this week who knows.
Saturday : Ottawa Senators at Arizona Coyotes
The Ottawa Senators had the worst record in hockey last season, only getting 64 points on the year. The Coyotes won both of their games against the Senators last season, winning by scores of 5-1 and 3-2. So hopefully they can continue their success against the Senators this season.
It is a pretty easy week ahead for the Coyotes, and we will be here for you every step of the way.
