It wasn’t going to be easy. The Coyotes were facing off against a tough Colorado Avalanche team, who came in riding a four-game point streak. But, despite being massive underdogs, the Coyotes dug deep and walked away with a 2-1 regulation win.
It was another slow start for the Coyotes, a not-great recent trend. Although Arizona did a good enough job keeping the Avalanche from running away with the game, they couldn’t get much offensive zone time and were mostly one and done.
