Game Preview: Ducks Take on Coyotes in Arizona

by Kyle Shohara @kyleshohara / AnaheimDucks.com

Anaheim's preseason continues tonight as the club travels to the Valley of the Sun to take on the Arizona Coyotes at Gila River Arena (6 p.m. PT, TV: None, Radio: AnaheimDucks.com).

Tonight marks the third of seven preseason contests for the Ducks, who will return home to host the LA Kings tomorrow night at Honda Center. Anaheim opened its 2016 preseason slate against the Coyotes this past Tuesday in a 2-1 loss at home, with Antoine Laganiere scoring the club's lone goal.

The Ducks enter tonight's game still in search of their first win of the preseason, having gone winless in two previous games, including a 6-1 loss to the Kings at Staples Center on Wednesday. Rookie defenseman Brandon Montour (2nd round, 55th overall, 2014) scored the goal in the loss.

Arizona, meanwhile, sits atop the Pacific Division standings with a 2-1-1 record through four preseason games. Rookie left wing Michael Bunting (4th round, 117th overall, 2014) co-leads the club (with center Ryan White) in scoring with three points (2g/1a) in two games. White has a goal and two assists through two games.

Following tonight's game against the Coyotes and tomorrow's contest against the Kings, the Ducks will close out their preseason with games on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at Edmonton, Wednesday, Oct. 5 at San Jose and Sunday, Oct. 9 vs. San Jose (preseason finale).
