NEW YORK – Phoenix Coyotes
General Manager Don Maloney
is today's guest on NHL Hour With Commissioner Gary Bettman on NHL.com and SIRIUS XM Radio at 6 p.m. ET.
The Coyotes are fourth in the Western Conference standings and are only five points behind the San Jose Sharks
, who lead the Pacific Division and Western Conference. And they're 6-0-0 since March 3, when Maloney traded for forwards Lee Stempniak
, Wojtek Wolski
and Petteri Nokelainen
and defenseman Derek Morris
and Mathieu Schneider
. Since arriving in Phoenix, Stempniak has made a big impact, scoring six goals and adding two assists over the six-game period. On Monday he was named second star of the week for last week's performance.
The revitalized 'Desert Dogs' seek a franchise-record 44th victory -- and seventh consecutive win -- when they play the Panthers tonight in Florida.
