Phoenix Coyotes Preseason Countdown 2013: Preview

FFH's annual preseason countdown will begin on Saturday and count down days until September 15th's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Puck drop at Arena is closer than you think.

Just over seven weeks remain until a Patrick Lauder national anthem welcomes Phoenix Coyotes fans to yet another hockey game.

September 15 will mark the official opening of the Coyotes preseason as the Desert Dogs will take on the Los Angeles Kings in a split-squad game. That game starts at 7 p.m. There is also an Arizona Cardinals home game at 1 p.m. on the same day. (Hint, hint, wink, wink Global Spectrum).

Beginning on Saturday, Five For Howling will countdown to the preseason using number association. We will countdown from 50 days to one using this method. For example, today would have been Day 51. The "51" could represent: a player's number, a player's point total, the date 5/1, a $5.1 million salary, the 51st game of last season, etc.

Countdowns will be short, fun articles that look back on the season that was, as a new season approaches.

The Coyotes are "here to stay," and the preseason is only 51 days away.
