The Phoenix Coyotes haven’t exactly been road warriors this season. More like roadkill.

But if they want to qualify for the playoffs, they’re going to have to start winning away from home.

Heading into Wednesday’s contest against the Edmonton Oilers, the Coyotes were three points out of a playoff spot with nine games left to go.

Six of those nine games, however, are on the road, where the Coyotes have struggled this year.
