Coyotes continue to thrive against division opponents — The hierarchy in the Pacific Division is far from being settled, but it's certainly taken on a different look from the order that finished last season. Three of the current top four teams were not included in this past spring's playoff picture, and what's helped key the Coyotes' climb to the No.

Coyotes top Ducks for third time this season — The 'A' slapped on Coyotes center Antoine Vermette's sweater was new, an addition in the absence of captain Shane Doan who was unable to suit up because of a lower-body injury. But the makeover wasn't exclusive to wardrobe.

Arizona Coyotes welcome back Mike Smith, Nicklas Grossmann as schedule gets busy — The Coyotes had played the fewest home games in the NHL before hosting the Ducks, but they'll bump up their total in a hurry. Wednesday was the start of a three-game homestand in four nights with the Flames at Gila River Arena Friday and the Senators completing a rare back-to-back at home on Saturday.

Arizona Coyotes' defense has lessened urgency for trade — Even in training camp when their roster appeared to be set, the Coyotes explored ways to bolster their defense. But the urgency to make a move isn't so strong as it once was after the unit debuted improvement following last season's struggles.

Arizona Coyotes' Shane Doan nears record amid change — Goals and assists, the results that fuel the ego and merit responsibility and dictate contract status, haven't suggested much of a change. Only two players on the Coyotes have scored more than his six goals, and 10 points in 20 games isn't too shabby, either.

Short-handed goal sinks Coyotes in loss to Jets — WINNIPEG -- The power play kept the Coyotes afloat against the Jets. And it also played a role in their undoing. After tallying a pair of goals, the unit allowed a game-deciding shorthanded goal to fall 3-2 to the Jets Saturday at MTS Centre to conclude their four-game road trip with only two out of a possible eight points (1-3).
