The Phoenix Coyotes' pursuit of first place in the Pacific Division will be televised nationally on Monday night.
Phoenix, which has won four in a row, will host Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals at Jobing.com Arena. Game time is slated for 8 p.m. ET. Phoenix enters Monday's game just one point behind the Dallas Stars in the Pacific Division.
Washington, meanwhile, is five points behind the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Southeast Division. The Caps dropped a 4-1 decision to Los Angeles at the Verizon Center on Saturday.
Monday's showdown can be seen on VERSUS in the U.S and TSN2 in Canada.
I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
