If the Phoenix Coyotes optimism about a new season was sky high before the season officially began, at right this moment, they would be looking for the reset button. After five games, the Coyotes sit at 1-4 and in last place in the Pacific Division and the entire Western Conference.

As the 'Yotes try to navigate through a brutal early season schedule and keep pace in the ultra-competitive Pacific, they will need to tighten up a couple of areas and hope that the injury bug goes away so that they can field a top-notch squad on most nights.

The good thing about the shortened season is that there are so many games in such a short time. They can get right back in the race by putting together one good week at this point. Although they have gotten off to a rotten start, it can all be turned around quickly, if and only if, they can get back to playing tough and rugged defense-first hockey.
