A grueling stretch continues for the Arizona Coyotes. After wrapping up the road trip and returning home to play the Los Angeles Kings, next up was the St. Louis Blues. The Coyotes and Blues faced off in an early game-of-the-year candidate, with the Coyotes losing a heartbreaker 6-5. Arizona then made the trip to Las Vegas to play the defending champion Golden Knights. In a gritty effort, the Coyotes reversed their fortunes and ended a three-game skid, defeating Vegas 2-0. In both games, the Coyotes showed off the tenacity that is starting to become the DNA of this team. That tenacity will continue to come in handy, as they face a slew of recent Stanley Cup champions over the next several games.
