With a win over the St. Louis Blues the Phoenix Coyotes have moved into first place in the Pacific Division and they have a very real chance of taking the title if they can beat the Minnesota Wild tomorrow. Even if they get a point they can sill possibly walk away with the title, depending on the outcome of the Sharks/Kings game tomorrow. The Coyotes really are in control of their own destiny this time around, they may have fallen to the Wild twice before but they have managed to get 3 points from them, and the game against the Blues show that they are already playing playoff level hockey
