In a Pacific Division match-up Tuesday night, it was the Phoenix Coyotes who came away victorious over the L.A. Kings.
Coyotes goalie Mike Smith was solid, making 41 saves as Phoenix defeated the Kings 3-1. It’s not really just another win.
The Coyotes are part of a five-team pack that is separated by only five points in the newly re-formed and already intensely competitive Pacific Division.
San Jose, Anaheim and Vancouver all sit ahead Phoenix in the division standings, but the Coyotes have gotten off to a good start with an 8-3-2 record. The Kings represent that fifth team, and they’re only two points back of the Coyotes.
