There was a lot of confusion with the Coyotes-Avs schedule release, initially. Sorry about the misinformation. Here is what I have now. pic.twitter.com/n0A0K25MFa— Craig Morgan (@CraigSMorgan) August 10, 2020
With the unique playoff format this year, the Coyotes aren’t going to have too much downtime between games. But they will have had four days of rest, and a chance to scout out their competition during Saturday’s game.
Like the previous round, the Coyotes games will be late morning, early afternoon. There will be at least one back-to-back game.
Unlike the previous play-in round, this will officially be the first round of the playoffs. It will be a best-of-seven series, with no shootout.
The Arizona Coyotes won their best-of-five series against the Nashville Predators in four games. The Colorado Avalanche won three of their four games in the Western Conference round-robin tournament for seeding. They beat the Minnesota Wild, St. Louis Blues, and Dallas Stars, falling only to the Vegas Golden Knights.
