Phoenix (8-9-2) at NY Rangers (14-7-2), 7:00 pm EST
NEW YORK (Ticker) — The New York Rangers are great at killing
penalties. The Phoenix Coyotes are inept at converting power
The Rangers will look to exploit that advantage when they face
the Coyotes on Monday.
New York leads the Eastern Conference and is second in the NHL
with an 89.9 percent penalty kill. Phoenix, meanwhile, is
successful on just 14 percent of its power-play chances – the
second-worst mark in the league.
The Rangers have allowed a power-play tally in each of their
last two games – both losses in which they yielded 10 goals.
During a three-game winning streak before their current slide,
the Rangers had allowed a total of five tallies.
Phoenix is 0-3-2 over its last five games following a 4-3
overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.
The Coyotes held the lead in the third period but allowed the
tying goal with 67 seconds left in regulation and squandered the
game-winner early in the extra session.
