Herein begins "game week" between the Ducks and the Coyotes.

Have you ever wanted to take an interest in another team, ya know, really watch the way they play over an extended period of time, but couldn’t find a way to fit them into your busy schedule and love of your favorite NHL team?

Well, starting tonight, this is your opportunity to get an up close and personal look at the Phoenix Coyotes. You’ll get to revisit this match-up again on Monday, and, again, one more time on Wednesday. That’s right, three straight against those wacky desert dogs!

There’s a highly good chance the Ducks are going to start off this home-home and home stance with Viktor Fasth in the net seeing as how Jonas Hiller got the nod against the Minnesota Wild on Friday night. Likewise, there’s also a good chance we see Sheldon Souray swap in for Toni Lydman to allow them the rest on back-to-back evenings.

The Ducks might just be one of the luckiest teams in the league right now with the ability to play either of their goalies or swap out their defensive players on any given night. The depth of the playing filed is stretching not just beyond the forward depth, but defensively as well. This option is even sweeter on back to back occasions.

Let’s consider this a mini-playoff series, shall we? Best 2 of 3? Go for it!

GO DUCKS!!!
