Arizona is starting a five-game trip at Nashville on Monday

by Dave Vest @davest4yotes / Coyotes Sr. Director of News Content

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.

'Yotes Notes: DeAngelo's Ejection Set Wrong Tone

Rookie Anthony DeAngelo was booted from Saturday's game for boarding early in the first period

by Dave Vest @davest4yotes / Coyotes Sr. Director of News Content

GLENDALE -- The Coyotes played with just five defensemen for all but 1:56 of Saturday's game vs. St. Louis at Gila River Arena. That's because rookie Anthony DeAngelo was ejected from the game for boarding St. Louis rookie Zach Sanford early in the first period.

Thanks to DeAngelo's hit, Arizona was put on the penalty kill for five minutes and nearly killed it. Alex Pietrangelo scored for St. Louis with just three seconds left on the lengthy power play.

The Coyotes never recovered and lost 3-0.

'Yotes Notes: Chychrun's Goal Extends Point Streak

Rookie Jakob Chychrun scored late in the third period vs. Detroit on Thursday

by Dave Vest @davest4yotes / Coyotes Sr. Director of News Content

GLENDALE -- The Coyotes lost a rather anti-climactic shootout to the Detroit Red Wings at Gila River Arena on Thursday night, but by rallying to tie the score late in the third period they extended their late-season point streak to five games (3-0-2).

Rookie Jakob Chychrun scored the game-tying goal with 2:30 left in regulation.

"We know we're never out of it," Chychrun said. "It's anyone's game still when it's that late, and we're only down by one goal. I think we all had a sense of urgency. We all knew that we could tie it up and me, especially, I think I made a tough read on that fourth goal for them. I really wanted to make a play for us and try to get one back for us and we did."
