The Arizona Coyotes are looking to extend their two-game winning streak tonight against the Anaheim Ducks.

The Coyotes have won three of their last four games and boosted their record from 1-5-0 to 4-6-0.

Louis Domingue has played well lately. His last two starts have been impressive where he’s made 74 saves on 78 shots to help the Yotes win two in a row.

Domingue has made big saves down the stretch, but it’ll be interesting to see if Arizona will ride the hot hand or give Domingue some rest on the second half of their back-to-back tonight.

Christian Dvorak scored his first career NHL goal last night in a 3-2 win against Nashville, and played very well on a line with Max Domi and Anthony Duclair.

Duclair scored his first of the season and Domi picked up his team-leading seventh assist on the year.

Domi is still without a goal, but with the way he’s been playing lately, that will change sooner rather then later.

The Coyotes have been able to consistently start games strong. They’ve scored first in five of their last six games, but the struggle for the Yotes is being able to sustain pressure against teams from start to finish.

The Ducks are looking to get their fifth win of the season, which would boost their record to 5-5-2 and bump them ahead of Calgary for third place in the Pacific Division.

Puck drop in Anaheim is 10:00 p.m. EST.
