After an awful loss in Glendale on Tuesday, the Phoenix Coyotes dropped to 0-2 against the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference finals.
The Coyotes haven't played well -- at all -- in the first two games, and despite three Coyotes players being booted from the last game for playing a little rough, only center Martin Hanzal's suspended for this game (more on that below).
