WHO TO WATCH

OILERS: Mike Peca

Has yet to find the back of the net and the Oil need to get him rolling.

COYOTES: Mike Comrie

Another hometown return for the former Oiler, who has yet to score this season.

YOU SHOULD KNOW

The Oilers' power play is in a slump with a 0-for-19 skid. This after starting the year with a strong 6-for-22 run.

NOTES

The Coyotes have five players in their lineup who played the bulk of the minor hockey in northern Alberta (Shane Doan, Mike Comrie, Geoff Sanderson, Tyson Nash and Derek Morris), and three former Oilers (Comrie, Curtis Joseph and Petr Nedved) on the roster. Former Calgary Flame Oleg Saprykin went into last night's game leading the Coyotes in scoring with three points in three games, while Doan is wearing the captain's 'C' ... With the injury bug biting down on the Oilers, Jani Rita, Brad Winchester and Kyle Brodziak are expected to play against Phoenix.
