Arizona received goals from Kevin Connauton and Tobias Reider in Tuesday's loss. Antti Raanta allowed three goals on five shots to take the loss before being removed in the first period. Louis Dominique made 21 saves on 23 shots the rest of the way.
Detroit started the season off strongly, but looked more like the team it is expected to be in Tuesday's loss. And while Arizona has struggled out of the gates, they should be a much better team this year especially when healthy. With the Coyotes searching for their first win, this should be a good spot for them to achieve it.
