ARIZONA: LAST SEASON: 29-41-12, 70 points. Last in Pacific Division.
COACH: Rick Tocchet (second season, fourth NHL season).
ADDED: C Alex Galchenyuk, F Michael Grabner, F Vinnie Hinostroza, D Jordan Oesterle, D Ilya Lyubushkin.
LOST: F Max Domi, F Jordan Martinook, D Luke Schenn, C Zac Rinaldo.
PLAYER TO WATCH: F Clayton Keller. The skilled forward had a super rookie season, finishing with 23 goals and 42 assists while becoming a finalist for the Calder Trophy, awarded to the NHL's best rookie. Keller had a midseason lull after a superb start to his rookie season and the Coyotes are hoping for even more production his second season as he gains more consistency.
OUTLOOK: The thought of a playoff push had been considered a longshot at best the past few seasons. It could be a reality this season with a still young but talented roster, a year under Tocchet's system and
ADDED scoring depth. A big key will be keeping goalie Antti Raanta healthy after he was limited to 47 games a year ago. Do that and get the scoring boost they're expecting and don't be surprised to see the Coyotes in the playoff hunt late in the season.
MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 45-26-11, 101 points. Third in Central Division.
LOST to Winnipeg Jets in Western Conference quarterfinals.
COACH: Bruce Boudreau (third season, 12th NHL season).
ADDED: RW J.T. Brown, C Eric Fehr, C Matt Hendricks, RW Matt Read, D Greg Pateryn, D Matt Bartkowski.
LOST: C Matt Cullen, LW Tyler Ennis, RW Daniel Winnik.
PLAYER TO WATCH: LW Zach Parise. After missing the first 39 games because of a lower back problem that required surgery, Parise's delayed start was predictably slow. He scored 12 goals in his last 18 games of the regular season, though, and scored in each of the first three playoff games until being knocked out of action again by a broken sternum. Parise, who's entering his 14th NHL season at age 34, isn't built to be the team's premier scorer but needs to replicate that productivity down the stretch to help keep the offense balanced.
OUTLOOK: New GM Paul Fenton made only minor moves this summer for fresh faces on the fourth line and more depth on defense, so the Wild will rely on the same core that has been bounced out of the playoffs in the first round three straight times and won only two series over the last six years. Just reaching the postseason again in the rugged Western Conference would be an accomplishment in itself, and Boudreau has as strong of an 82-game track record as any bench boss in the league. Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter, who's coming off a serious ankle injury that kept him out of the playoffs, must stay healthy throughout the seventh year of their identical $98 million megadeals. Wings Charlie Coyle and Nino Niederreiter also have to bounce back from down seasons.
Coyotes look to make more shots vs. Wild

Getting shots on goal hasn't been the problem for the Arizona Coyotes.

Getting them into the goal has been the issue, one that might not get any easier to solve Tuesday night when they start a four-game road trip by aiming pucks at Minnesota Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk.

Although Minnesota (1-2-2) lost 4-2 Monday night in Nashville with backup Alex Stalock between the pipes, Dubnyk isn't the reason for its slow start. All he's done in four games is post a .934 save percentage, going 1-1-2 with a 2.64 goals-against average.

He's faced an average of 41.8 shots per game, including a ridiculous 57 Saturday in a 5-4 overtime loss to Carolina. Without Dubnyk, the Wild probably don't steal a point in that game or in a 2-1 OT setback to Vegas on Oct. 6, when Dubnyk stopped 41 of 42 shots.

"He's been our No. 1 star in all four games that he's played," Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau said following the loss against the Hurricanes. "In a realistic world, you're happy you got a point out of that."

For his part, Dubnyk isn't worried about the Wild's slow start, not just to the season, but to games. They coughed up the first goal Monday night for the fourth time in five games, and even though they tied it after 20 minutes, they spent most of the game's remainder in chase mode again.

"I think we're all proud in here and we all know how good we can be, so we have just got to figure it out," Dubnyk said. "We know we have a great group in here. I think we all agree we can be better."

As for Arizona (1-3-0), its mission is simple, according to coach Rick Tocchet: Don't allow frustration to govern your game. He gave that speech minutes after it outshot Buffalo 36-23 Saturday, but couldn't beat backup goalie Linus Ullmark in a 3-0 setback.

The Coyotes have driven play in the early going, putting 146 shots on net to the opponents' 93. But aside from a 3-2 win on Wednesday in Anaheim, they haven't scored a goal.

"I know everybody's frustrated," Tocchet said. "The coaching staff's frustrated. Everybody's frustrated we're not scoring goals. You're trying your best to figure it out, but at the end of the day, you've just got to be able to will yourself a goal."

Arizona has pumped at least 30 shots on goal in every game, the first time it's done that in the first four games since 1985-86, when the franchise was playing in Winnipeg.

Part of the problem might be the lack of proven snipers on the roster. Only two players have scored 30 goals in a season. Michael Grabner is eight years removed from doing it with the New York Islanders and Alex Galchenyuk, who scored 30 three years ago for Montreal, is currently sidelined with a lower-body injury.

"I'd like to see somebody score a goal," Tocchet said. "We've had point-blank shots in the slot. You just got to keep shooting, I guess. You got to work at your game. I don't have a recipe other than that."
