The Coyotes found solace when they defeated the Dallas Stars on Sunday, 3-1. It was just their second win in their last six games as they continue to battle through a disastrous season where they just account for 30 points in games – the second worst record in the league.

Protecting home ice is still a must for Arizona; hence, home fans still expect their team to give their 100 percent effort.
