Down Dogs

The Arizona Coyotes aren’t exactly dominating the NHL, but they’re off to a promising start. The Yotes looked like a strong bet to miss the playoffs on paper, but the beginning of the season has seen Arizona play like a playoff contender — especially in a 3-2 win over the defending Stanley Cup Champions.

The seasons are long in hockey, though, and there’s still plenty of time for the Coyotes to regress. Winning a few games early on won’t mean much unless the Coyotes can keep winning against top teams. The Coyotes will have a chance to do just that when they face off against the Dallas Stars on Tuesday, November 11, at Gila River Arena, 9400 West Maryland in Glendale. The Stars, keyed by electrifying center Tyler Seguin, have one of the most electric offenses in the NHL. The Coyotes will have to channel the Coyotes of old (the ones that routinely shut offenses down) to keep up.

The puck will drop at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $10 and are available online via
