The Phoenix Coyotes received a rude homecoming on Saturday night in Glendale. The Western Conference leading Minnesota Wild beat them by a score a 4-1. The Coyotes for the second game in a row dug themselves a large hole they couldn't get out of. After last night's games the Coyotes sit in second place in the Pacific and seventh place in the Western Conference. Their next game is on Wednesday night against the Ducks.
