KEY GAME INFORMATION
PHOENIX: GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Phoenix Coyotes played the past four seasons with a chip on their shoulders, trying to prove they could win without an owner.
Now that there are owners looking over their shoulders, the Coyotes are facing something new: Expectations.
When IceArizona purchased the Coyotes from the NHL this summer, it put the Coyotes on the same financial and operational ground as the league's 29 other teams.
The group headed by George Gosbee and Anthony LeBlanc has already made a mark on the team, giving Phoenix the resources to re-sign goalie Mike Smith and lure top-line center Mike Ribeiro in free agency.
The next step for the Coyotes is to take their newfound stability - and wealth - and win more games after missing the playoffs last season.
NEW JERSEY: NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - While other teams made the most of the lockout-shortened season, the New Jersey Devils missed the playoffs a year after making the Stanley Cup finals.
There were injuries. There were slumps. It was not pretty.
But it was also only one part of the story. Then came the offseason.
Forward Ilya Kovalchuk stunned the team in July, by walking away from $77 million left on his 15-year contract to play in Russia. Technically, the 30-year-old retired. Realistically, he left the Devils without a star player. Forward David Clarkson left via free agency, as well, and so when New Jersey opens Oct. 3 at Pittsburgh, you will see some new faces in new places.

(UPDATES with Brodeur starting for Devils)

*Coyotes-Devils Preview* ========================

By JEFF MEZYDLO STATS Senior Writer

Phoenix (35-26-12) at New Jersey (31-28-13), 7:00 p.m. EDT

Despite an injury to their starting goaltender, the Phoenix Coyotes appear poised to stay positive and remain in playoff position.

Looking to build on an impressive victory over one of the NHL's top teams, the visiting Coyotes will try to deliver a blow to the New Jersey Devils' slim playoff chances Thursday night.

One night after Mike Smith suffered a leg injury during the third period of a 4-3 overtime loss to the New York Rangers, Phoenix (35-26-12) bounced back with a 3-2 victory at Pittsburgh.

"It gives confidence that if you can win in Pittsburgh you can win anywhere," said Coyotes forward Shane Doan, who helped set up Mikkel Boedker's tiebreaking goal in the second period for one of his two assists.

"It was a big win. A really big win."

In the midst of an 8-3-1 stretch, Phoenix increased its lead to three points over Dallas for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference and built some much-needed momentum while Smith remains day-to-day.

A Canadian Olympian who had a 1.88 goals-against average while winning seven of nine prior to Saturday's 4-2 home loss to East-leading Boston, Smith is expected to be evaluated when the team returns home Friday.

Backup Thomas Greiss snapped an 0-2-1 skid by making 23 saves against the Penguins to improve to 8-5-2 with a 2.35 GAA this season.

"It would be easy to say, 'Smitty's out, this guy's out, that guy's out,' but the leadership in the room really stepped up and made sure there was no lull in our game," Phoenix coach Dave Tippett said. "The effort was very determined (Tuesday) and we got a valuable two points."

Converting a West-leading 20.8 percent of their power-play chances, the Coyotes are 6 for 25 (24.0 percent) while recording a power-play goal in six consecutive contests.

Doan, who assisted on Antoine Vermette's goal with the man-advantage on Tuesday, has five assists in his last six road contests.

The Coyotes conclude their three-game eastern trip looking for a third straight victory and seventh in nine games against the Devils (31-28-13), who fell 3-2 at Phoenix on Jan. 18. Though Phoenix's two losses over the last eight meetings came in its last two trips to New Jersey, the Coyotes haven't played there since December 2010.

The Devils are 11th in the East and five points out of wild-card position, but remain hopeful with only three of their final 10 games coming against teams that have already clinched a playoff berth or remain serious contenders.

"I know the statistics don't say that but I really feel we can win every game," Devils coach Pete DeBoer said.

New Jersey won for the second time in three games, 3-2 over Toronto on Sunday. Rookie defenseman Jon Merrill had a goal with an assist and Damien Brunner scored in his return from missing two games with a lower-body injury.

With a goal against the Maple Leafs, New Jersey's Patrik Elias has scored 10 of his 17 goals over his last 20 games. Though he didn't have a point at Phoenix in January, Elias has six goals and six assists in 10 career home games against the Coyotes.

Martin Brodeur will get the start for the Devils after Cory Schneider made 21 saves against the Maple Leafs. Brodeur stopped 24 shots in the loss to the Coyotes in January.
