This game concerns me a bit. San Jose always seems to play well against the Coyotes. Mike Ricci always seems to play a good game against the Coyotes because he plays chippy hockey and crashes the net. Our D always seems to be in trouble when it's his shift. However, with the Coyotes top players playing so well I'm inclined to predict a Coyotes win. I would expect Ference to play inspired hockey. Consider the prospect that if Taffe actually continued scoring and pushed his way onto the team, this team would have a lot of goalscoring on it. This team already seems to be able to score whenever needed. Anyhow, it's looking like this team can withstand some significant injuries too. I think this team will go over .500 now and stay in a playoff spot.
