Ice Bites: Coyotes need to use win over Kings as launching pad

The Phoenix Coyotes (soon to be Arizona Coyotes) kicked off a four-game home stand Tuesday in the sweetest way possible: Rocking their division rival, the Los Angeles Kings.

And while the win was likely the best all-around game the Coyotes have put together this season, it's no time to take their foot off the gas pedal. It's time to run with the momentum and keep themselves relevant in the postseason conversation.

The team is currently a few points out of a playoff spot and only has five games before the Olympic break. Things certainly won't get easier in a tight Western Conference race after Sochi, so the Coyotes should use Tuesday's big win to get the ball rolling and claim the eighth spot before everyone's eyes turn to Russia next week.
