The Senators head into the desert on Saturday looking to extend their post as the second seed in the Atlantic division while the Coyotes look for wins in back to back nights.
The Senators are starting to find their groove and are chasing down the Montreal Canadiens for top spot in the division and while they remain nine points back of their tri-coloured rivals they are closing the gap with their strong play. Ottawa is a quiet 12-5-5 this season and have been playing very well of late posting a 6-1-3 mark in their last 10 contests and with a show down against the Coyotes on Saturday they have a shot at winning their eighth road game of the year. Ottawa will stick with Craig Anderson here while the Coyotes will stick with Mike Smith here.
Arizona is coming off an overtime win against the Calgary Flames last night and with a win tonight they can continue their impressive start to the year and jump into second place in the Pacific division. The Coyotes have a ton of young talent on their roster and while they are still considered a bit of a long shot to make the postseason they are certainly playing like a group capable of getting there and if they can get a statement win here against one of the best in the East it could go a long way to boosting their confidence. Unfortunately, the Sens are the better of the two teams and are in a good spot here to grab another win.
