After a fantastic February that saw the Ducks soar during an 11-2 run, Anaheim has dropped two of their first three games in March and now sit with a 15-3-3 record. Weirdness is normal during this lockout shortened 2012-13 National Hockey League season as is evident by the Ducks and ‘Yotes playoff like scheduling streak. The Ducks lost 5-4 in two shootouts to Phoenix this past Saturday and Monday. Jonas Hiller, (4 goals on 40 shots on Monday) gets the start in net. The normally reliable Anaheim defense needs to be better tonight.

The other runs were halted by Chicago, Nashviille, and Edmonton. In those contests Phoenix was outscored by a combined 12-4 count and two of them were on the road. The ‘Yotes can score as they are averaging almost four goals per game over their last eight contests. After a run of 15 straight starts, netminder Mike Smith gets the night off as Jason LaBarbera will be between the pipes for the Coyotes.
