The Florida Panthers (5-3-1) will make their first-ever visit to the Arizona Coyotes (2-5-1) new temporary home, Mullett Arena tonight in Tempe to open a four-game road trip. Florida is coming off a well-played 5-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday that ended a two-game losing streak. After gaining a point in an overtime loss to the Winnipeg Jets to open the Mullett on Friday, the Coyotes suffered another 3-2 defeat against the New York Rangers on Sunday, so the Desert Dogs should be motivated to make game three of this first homestand a win. The Panthers swept Arizona last season, winning 5-3 in Sunrise and 3-1 in Glendale.
