Coyotes Play Host to Chicago in One of Five NHL Games 2/7/14
UNDATED — Tonight's Chicago at Phoenix game is probably the biggest of the night in the NHL. The Central Division-leading Blackhawks, who top the Blues by two points, trail Anaheim for the Western Conference lead by three points. It's a big game for the Coyotes as well as they are just a point back of Vancouver for the final playoff berth in the West.
Columbus is a point back of Detroit for the final playoff spot in the East and tonight the Blue Jackets are at San Jose. The Sharks are fourth in the West, seven points behind Anaheim in both the Western Conference and Pacific Division races.
The other games this evening feature Edmonton at New Jersey, Florida at Carolina and the Eastern-leading Pittsburgh Penguins home to the Rangers. Pittsburgh leads idle Boston by six points in the East.
