Game Thread: Rangers in the desert

Raanta is back in net for the Rangers in tonight's road game in Arizona.

The Arizona Coyotes are 11-19-9 this season. So, yeah, they aren't a very good hockey team.

Arizona has gone 3-6-1 in their last ten games and they are 6-9-2 at home this year. The Coyotes have really struggled to score goals this year. Only Colorado has a worse offense than the Coyotes this year. But this could be misleading, they sometimes walk in single file to hide their numbers.

Their power play, orchestrated by OEL, has staggered and is sitting at 14.3 percent. They're like an R2 unit with a bad motivator. No one wants a team with a bad motivator, not even the Jawas.

Coyotes' Leaders

  • Radim Vrbata- 9 goals.
  • Vrbata- 14 assists.
  • Vrbata- 23 points.
  • Vrbata- 105 shots.
  • Vrbata- totally has a name that sounds like it belongs to someone in a bar in Mos Eisley.

I wonder which Arizona forward the Rangers have to keep an eye on tonight?

May the Force be with you and with our sweet, precious Antti tonight.
