The Arizona Coyotes have yet another chance to get things right. Once again the team is home, this time against the Edmonton Oilers, a team that is 7-2-1 in their last 10 games. This game is going to be a test for the Coyotes.
Faith in the Coyotes is dwindling away after each game. This team does not look the same as they did almost two months ago, and they can not find a way to beat anyone. Two of the bottom teams in the division ended up beating the Coyotes, and they did so pretty easily might I add.
I really thought the Coyotes were going to find a way to get things done against the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings. Those were easy points that the team needed, unfortunately for Rick Tocchet and company, they just could not get things done.
January was a horrible month of hockey for the Coyotes, and now things are not looking much better for the month of February. That fact alone is scary. We need to find a way to turn this around, otherwise, our season will be done within the next 10 games. In order to get things back on track, we need to win a game. I don’t care if we play our best game, as long as we get two points.

The Coyotes are going to have their money’s cut out for them tonight against the Oilers. Starting the game strong is going to be key for the Coyotes getting two points. We are basically at the point where if we do not get the first goal then we are not going to get the win, while sad that is, it does show that we need to get the first goal.
Playing with the lead is something the Coyotes do a lot better than playing from behind, I think that is true for every team though. Well, Coyotes’ fans how are you feeling about tonight’s game? If we don’t get things done tonight I feel like we are going to dig ourselves into too deep of a hole to overcome.
