Backed by the impressive play of rookie goalie Louis Domingue, the Arizona Coyotes jumped 13 spots into the top 5 of this week‘s SI.com NHL Power Rankings.
So it turns out that there’s more to the Coyotes than All-Star captain John Scott. The Desert Dogs are playing their best hockey in two years and their 4-0-1 streak has vaulted them into this week's top-five. Rookie goalie Louis Domingue is drawing a lot of attention, posting a 1.58 GAA and a .952 save percentage during this hot streak. So is winger Tobias Rieder, who chipped in two goals and an assist in Saturday's 4-0 win over Nashville. That game marked the first of seven straight to be played at Gila River Arena, a key stretch that could see the Yotes put some ground between themselves and their pursuers in the Pacific Division playoff race.
Biggest jump: Arizona Coyotes (18 to 5)
Biggest drop: Nashville Predators (14 to 26)
