The series opener was a game they'd like to forget, but instead the Coyotes will likely spend the next two days talking to reporters about what went wrong and how to fix it.
Center Andrew Ebbett hopes the experience is inspirational before Phoenix and Detroit meet again on Saturday afternoon at Joe Louis Arena (1 p.m. ET) for Game 2.
"We've got that two-day break, so we've got to sit on it for two days," Ebbett said. "Hopefully that will light a fire under a few guys here and we'll be ready for Saturday afternoon. We've been a road team all year, so we're a confident bunch in here. We feel like we let one slip away tonight."
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
