The Coyotes will begin a five-game road trip with a match against the Nashville Predators on Monday night. The puck drops at 5 p.m. Arizona time at Bridgestone Arena.
"It's important," defenseman Alex Goligoski said of the trip. "We might not be in a playoff run, but the end of the season matters going forward here. As an organization, we want to set the tone and have kind of a standard to live up to."
Goligoski has notched 21 points (five goals, 16 assists) in 28 career games vs. Nashville. That's his highest point total vs. any NHL team.
Arizona (26-36-9) has defeated the Predators twice already this season and outscored them, 7-3, in those games. However, both of those games were played in Glendale, and the Coyotes have lost five consecutive games at Nashville.
