As the norm, I will update if needed.

from Dave Vest of the Coyotes,

ABOUT THE 'YOTES:

• Arizona has earned at least one point in seven of its past nine games (6-2-1), and has climbed into fifth place in the Pacific Division standings, just five points behind first-place Vancouver.

• The Coyotes are the NHL's best penalty-killing team with a 91.8 percent success rate. Arizona, which has allowed just one power-play goal in nine road games this season, killed all eight of its opponents' power plays in the first three games of this four-game road trip.

• Backup Darcy Kuemper is expected to again start in goal in place of Antti Raanta, who is nursing a lower-body injury. Kuemper has started the past four games, including a 4-1 victory at Washington on Sunday in which he made 38 saves. Kuemper is 1-1-1 vs. Detroit in his career with a 1.93 goals-against average and a .933 save percentage.

• Defenseman Jakon Chychrun is expected to make his season debut after missing the first 16 games of the season due to a knee injury he suffered late last season. Chychrun underwent surgery in the off-season and rehabbed hard to limit his time on the sideline.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
