On Friday the Arizona Coyotes beat the Nashville Predators to win their best-of-five play-in round against the Nashville Predators. Arizona has officially broken their eight-year playoff drought as they prepare to face the Colorado Avalanche.
Arizona advanced thanks to a balanced offense and great goaltending from Darcy Kuemper. Sixteen players for the Coyotes recorded points in the series. Strangely enough, Alex Goligoski and Jakob Chychrun were two of the three players who played but were kept off the scoresheet, and they are two of the Coyotes’ best defensemen at generating offense.
