Home Series Preview: Coyotes vs Blackhawks, Wild and Red Wings

Darryl Webb - Associated Press

The Arizona Coyotes start March on a two game winning streak, after snapping a 13 game losing streak with a win North of the border in Ottawa against the Senators, and then Sunday in a matinee with the Capitals in Washington, DC.

THE CHI-RISH LOOK TO CHANNEL THEIR LUCK

With the Chicago Blackhawks and inevitable Calder Memorial Trophy winner Connor Bedard navigating their way into Mullett Arena on Tuesday, the Coyotes begin a week of home games.

Bedard’s Blackhawks are 4-25-1 on the road this season and amidst a 22-game losing streak away from the United Center.

Whilst battling 22 consecutive losses on the road, the Blackhawks also are intertwined in a seven-game losing streak, stemming back to February 19, a loss to the Hurricanes on the road in Carolina, including a loss Monday night to the Colorado Avalanche, 5-0.

This is the second meeting of the season between the Blackhawks and Coyotes, with the Coyotes taking the season series opener on the road in Chicago 8-1. The Coyotes’ seven-goal margin of victory was helped by Jack McBain’s two goals and Michael Carcone’s hat-trick, both of which are expected to be in the Coyotes’ lineup for Tuesday’s battle at Mullett.

KIRILL FOR THE THRILL

The Minnesota Wild prowled into Arizona 5-4-1 in their last ten games, including a win over the Coyotes 3-1 on Valentine’s Day, in which Minnesota stole the lead early and never looked back.

Logan Cooley had the game’s only goal for the Coyotes, a third-period lead-splitter that was rendered un-threatening when Matt Boldy sealed the deal just under six minutes later.

Marc Andre-Fleury got the win credit between the pipes. He saved 25 of 26 shots faced and went 4/4 on the power play for his tenth win of the season.

The Wild arrive for their Central division matchup on Thursday after a win in a split back-to-back on March 2nd and 3rd, in which the Wild beat the Sharks 5-2 on March 3, helped by Kirill Kaprizov‘s hat-trick, his 27th, 28th and 29th goals of the season.

ORIGINAL SIX WHEEL INTO TEMPE

The Detroit Red Wings round out the week for the Coyotes in game two of their Thursday-Friday back-to-back, at 7:00 PM AZT, 9:00 PM EST.

The Red Wings play the Avalanche on Wednesday at Ball Arena and then sit dormant until their Friday matchup.

The Red Wings are 6-4 in their last ten games, with a six-game winning streak being broken by the New York Islanders, besting the Red Wings 5-3 in Detroit.

Detroit’s home ice stats (18-10-5) are better than their road ice stats (15-12-1), sitting above .500 in both records.

The puck drops on the Coyotes abbreviated home stand Tuesday at 7:00 PM AZT, 8:00 CST.
