So the Rangers still can't take a two-game lead in a series and now face the possibility of yet another round going to seven games after losing last night to the Devils. Meanwhile, out west, we'll have a chance to see a trophy not get touched tonight.

Los Angeles Kings (8) vs. Phoenix Coyotes (3) - 9:00 NBCSN: The Coyotes were dragged from the precipice by their heroic captain and an army of journalists who like to write stupid stories about heroic captains winning games where his team is badly outshot and his goalie gets a shutout. Phoenix is going to have to do one better than that one tonight if they're going to keep their postseason alive. Los Angeles hasn't lost on the road yet and I'm not wholly convinced they're ever going to again. Was Sunday the last snarl of a dying dog or is there fight left in these 'Yotes? Can they stop Dwight King from scoring?

Five for Howling (Coyotes)
Jewels from the Crown (Kings)

Prediction for tonight: Phoenix loses.
