This will not be your typical NHL preseason game, as far as venues goes.
Later tonight, the Ducks and Arizona Coyotes will square off inside Tucson Arena, home of the American Hockey League's Tucson Roadrunners, with a total hockey capacity of just under 6,800.
It will be an intimate setting for the Ducks and Coyotes, who will meet for the second and final time in the preseason. These two clubs faced off last Wednesday at Honda Center - a 5-1 victory for the visiting Coyotes. Anaheim enters tonight's game with a 1-3-0 record in the preseason after losing 4-2 last night to the Vegas Golden Knights. Arizona comes in with a 1-1-1 mark, its most recent contest a 5-4 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks at Gila River Arena on Saturday.
After tonight, the Ducks will not play again until Thursday when they host the Sharks at 7 p.m. Anaheim will close out its seven-game preseason schedule on Saturday night against the LA Kings at STAPLES Center (7:30 p.m.). The Coyotes will also have two games remaining following this one tonight - Thursday at LA and Saturday at San Jose. Anaheim and Arizona will open the regular season on Thursday, October 5 at Honda Center.
As a reminder, tonight's game is RADIO ONLY and will be broadcast on XEPRS 1090 or by clicking the link below when 7 p.m. rolls around.
