Under natural circumstances, a contest between coyotes and ducks would be a bloody massacre — gross. But at the highest levels of the equally ferocious hockey kingdom, the pecking order falls in reverse. The Anaheim Ducks are indeed mighty when compared to our faltering Arizona Coyotes. Still, the Ducks haven’t traveled particularly well this season, hovering slightly above the .500 mark. In the meantime, the Coyotes have scavenged slightly below. Given the numbers, the Valley’s own puck-wielding pack might just stand a decent chance of replicating nature when an otherwise superior flock of Ducks visits Glendale’s Gila River Arena, 9400 West Maryland Avenue, on Monday, February 20. The puck drops at 7 p.m. Tickets are $16 and up. Visit coyotes.nhl.com or call 623-772-3200 for details.
