When it comes to NHL scheduling, the Coyotes understand they have little control over their fate. But there are still some measures the Coyotes are taking in an attempt to balance the scales.

Instead of a home practice on Sunday, the Coyotes flew to New York for a head start on an upcoming East Coast road trip that features stops against the New York Rangers (Tuesday), New York Islanders (Thursday), New Jersey Devils (Friday) and Buffalo Sabres (Oct. 28).

The Coyotes laced up for a Monday practice in Manhattan, a deliberate attempt to help the players adjust to the three-hour time change.
