Anaheim lost 11 straight games
For a while in the first half of the championship, Anaheim even held first place in the Western Conference. However, the second part of the championship showed that the Ducks are still far away from being among the NHL's contenders. Dallas Eakins's team is coming into the game against Arizona with a streak of 11 straight losses. A stretch that speaks for itself. The Ducks slipped to 13th place in the Western Conference standings. It looks like the Californian team will have to give up their playoff hopes.
Injured reserve: Max Jones, Ryan Kesler, Jakob Silfverberg.
Arizona doesn't fail to surprise
While Anaheim has been a disappointment in the second half of the season, Arizona doesn't fail to surprise. The main outsider of the season, though still losing frequently, has managed to beat almost all the conference's contenders – Vegas, Colorado, Dallas.
In the previous game, the Coyotes defeated at home the team which is not a contender but a very strong one – San Jose, 5-2. Leaders of today's Arizona were excellent: Nick Schmaltz had 1+1 (goal+assist), Phil Kessel had 0+2.
Injured reserve: Lawson Crouse, Andrew Ladd, Jack McBain, Liam O'Brien, Conor Timmins, Antoine Roussel, Christian Fischer, Jacob Cochran and Dmitrij Jaskin.
