Last nights game was just that, this is the third game in in a row where the Coyotes flexed their offensive muscle. Of the 12 goals scored in the last three games every one was scored by a different player, with one notable exception, Oliver Ekman-Larsson has 2 of them. Tonight the Coyotes hope do douse the Calgary flames' playoff hopes as the face off for the last time this year. Join us back here for our game day thread.
