A nightmare of a start is an understatement for the Coyotes. After seven games, Arizona has found itself winless, and the members of the squad could not be more frustrated. This year is expected to be a rebuilding season for the Coyotes, but it does not mean the team is glad of losing. Now at the bottom of the Central Division, Arizona will try to pull off a huge upset when they visit the Capitals on Friday. It would, however, take them a ton of effort on both ends, especially with Washington currently on a streak.
Players to watch: P. Kessel RW (G 1, A 3, PTS 4), C. Keller RW (G 3, A 1, PTS 4), S. Gostisbehere D (G 0, A 4, PTS 4).
