Arizona vs Boston: Struggling NHL Squads Duel in the Desert
Something has to give when Boston visits Arizona in National Hockey League action as a couple of stumbling squads face off tonight. The Bruins have been flat during their current west coast road swing while the Coyotes have struggled all season long. Game time is scheduled for 8:00 PM ET on December 6, 2014, at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. Boston gets their mo-jo back here.
Boston Bruins: Looking to end a three game road losing skid
Stumbling into the desert, Boston (14-12-1) looks to snap out of their recent funk and a clash versus the Coyotes should be just what the doctor ordered. The Bruins have lost three straight west coast contests including a 7-4 collapse in San Jose on Thursday – a game they actually lead 2-0 after the first period. Still without all-world defenseman Zdeno Chára, Boston was out shot 44-24 by the Sharks who put the game away with four goals in the second period. The B’s will be better here.
Arizona Coyotes: Have new owners and new name but are still the same old Desert Dogs
Despite just passing the quarter pole of the 2014-15 NHL season, it’s looking like another lost year in the desert for the ‘Yotes. Stringing together way more loses than wins, the Coyotes (10-14-3) are second last in the Western Conference and nine points out of a playoff spot. Arizona is on a 4-8-2 recent run with two of the four wins coming versus the Edmonton Oilers (6-15-5) who sit last in the overall NHL standings. A lack of scoring and leaky defense has contributed to the Coyotes slide.
