The Arizona Coyotes are riding high after a gutsy comeback OT win against the New York Rangers, where they scored four unanswered goals. The team will be looking to carry that momentum to Raleigh to take on the Carolina Hurricanes in an early morning match at 11 a.m. Arizona time.
The Coyotes announced early today that Adin Hill will be getting the start against Carolina. Hills play overall has been quite impressive this season but his road game is particularly excellent with a perfect 4-0-0 record and a .956 save percentage. Some more good news for the Coyotes is that Alex Galchenyuk might be healthy enough to return to the lineup after missing the last three games with a lower body injury.
The Hurricanes will be looking to make a comeback of their own after dropping their last three games. Those losses include Friday night’s tilt against the Washington Capitals where the Hurricanes gave up a 4-1 lead and ended up losing in a shootout to the reigning champs. It’s been a weird season for the Carolina team and if they can’t find a way to turn it around their playoff drought will increase to 10 seasons. At least when they win at home they’re having fun.
