Thursday's Coyotes Tracks - Going For The Road Sweep

The Phoenix Coyotes take on the Nashville Predators tonight in Music City U.S.A. With a win the Desert Dogs would take all 6 possible points on their current 3 game road trip. The Desert Dogs had David Rundblad back on a plane yesterday as he was called up and Michael Stone was sent down. We have a ton of news from the world of puck in today's links including reaction to Erik Karlsson's horrible injury last night in Ottawa.
