KEY GAME INFORMATION
PHOENIX:

LAST SEASON: 42-27-13, 97 points. Lost to Los Angeles Kings 4-1 in Western Conference Finals.

COACH: Dave Tippett, 4th season with Coyotes, 125-78-33; 9th overall, 406-234-98 in NHL.

ADDED: LW Steve Sullivan, D Zbynek Michalek, RW David Moss.

LOST: LW Ray Whitney, LW Taylor Pyatt, D Adrian Aucoin, C Daymond Langkow, D Michal Rozsival.

PLAYER TO WATCH: G Mike Smith. The shaggy-haired goalie known as Smitty proved to be a more-than-capable No. 1 goalie in his first full season on the job, winning 28 games with eight shutouts and a 2.21 goals-against average. With the confidence of last season's deep playoff run, he could be a Vezina Trophy candidate.

OUTLOOK: The Coyotes should be brimming with confidence after winning their first division title and reaching the conference finals for the first time in 33 years as an NHL franchise. With the core of last year's roster back, they should be position to get the lockout-shortened season off to a good start and be able to sustain it toward another possible deep run in the playoffs.

SAN JOSE SHARKS

LAST SEASON: 43-29-10, 96 points. Lost to St. Louis 4-1 in first round.

COACH: Todd McLellan, 5th season, 195-92-41.

ADDED: D Brad Stuart, F Adam Burish.

LOST: F Torrey Mitchell, F Daniel Winnik, F Dominic Moore, F Brad Winchester, F Andrew Murray, D Colin White, D Jim Vandermeer.

PLAYER TO WATCH: D Brent Burns. The big acquisition before last season, Burns struggled in his first season with the Sharks as he tried to figure out how to fit in. His points and assists were down from his final year in Minnesota and he was not nearly the aggressive, hard-hitting defenseman the Sharks had been expecting. The Sharks hope that an increased comfort level will lead to better results in year two for Burns.

OUTLOOK: The Sharks hope to be a faster, more aggressive team after the disappointing finish a year ago. They brought back most of the key players from that squad led by captain Joe Thornton but hope Hall of Famer Larry Robinson's impact on the struggling penalty kill unit as a new assistant will help return San Jose near the top of the conference.

*Coyotes-Sharks Preview* ========================

By MATT BECKER STATS Editor

Phoenix (14-15-5) at San Jose (16-11-6), 10:30 p.m. EDT

The Phoenix Coyotes are feeling a bit better after ending a seven-game losing streak with an impressive offensive showing.

Building on that performance could be difficult, however, with a likely matchup against San Jose's Antti Niemi.

Coming off a pair of shutouts, Niemi looks to help the Sharks extend their winning streak to four Saturday night against the visiting Coyotes.

After making 22 saves in Wednesday's 4-0 win over Anaheim, Niemi stopped 27 shots the following night in a 2-0 victory over Detroit. Niemi, who has started 11 straight games for San Jose (16-11-6) with backup Thomas Greiss out with a neck injury, became the first goalie in franchise history to post shutouts on consecutive days.

"I wasn't cheating or expecting anything else," Niemi said. "I was just reading the play."

Niemi was also on top of his game in San Jose's last meeting with the Coyotes on Feb. 9, stopping all 21 shots through overtime before giving up two goals in the shootout in a 1-0 loss.

While Niemi seems to be finding his rhythm, the same appears to be true for Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns.

Each scored in the third consecutive game for the Sharks, who are in the midst of their longest winning streak since starting the season with seven straight victories. San Jose, which began its current run with a home-and-home sweep of Pacific Division-leading Anaheim, has won each of its last three in regulation - the same number of regulation victories it had in its previous 25 contests.

"We're playing like a team," coach Todd McLellan said. "Each line is contributing. We've come to a little bit of an agreement. I don't know if we've actually talked about it but guys have come to the conclusion that we need to play a certain way to be successful."

If the Coyotes can play the way they did in the first period against Nashville on Thursday, they should have no trouble being successful.

Phoenix (14-15-5) scored five times in a span of 6:40 and ended with six first-period goals en route to a 7-4 victory. The goal total was one shy of the number they had in the entirety of their skid.

"Whatever it takes, if it takes seven goals to win, that's what we need right now," said Radim Vrbata, who had two goals and an assist in the first period. "It was a crazy first period. That's not our style of play ... but we will take whatever we can get."

Martin Hanzal, David Moss, Matthew Lombardi, Keith Yandle and Antoine Vermette also scored and Rostislav Klesla added a career-high four assists for the Coyotes, who had their highest-scoring game since beating San Jose 8-0 on Dec. 30, 2006.

"We're a way better team when we are going forward instead of trying to chase it," captain Shane Doan said. "We obviously have to be good in our own zone and be better defensively, but at the same time we have to be in attacking mindset and that makes us so much more effective."

Mike Smith outdueled Niemi and stopped 33 shots in the last meeting, but has not played since March 21 because of an upper-body injury and will not travel to San Jose.

Jason LaBarbera, who has allowed 11 goals in his last three starts, gave up four in Phoenix's only other game against San Jose this season, a 5-3 loss on Jan. 24, and is 0-5-1 with a 3.12 goals-against average in his last seven games versus the Sharks.
