Avalanche face Coyotes in dramatic clash of styles

The Colorado Avalanche have one of the NHL's most dynamic offenses, led by Hart Trophy finalist Nathan MacKinnon.

The Arizona Coyotes play it much closer to the vest, relying on superb goaltending and counterattacking when they have the opportunity.

Whichever team can consistently establish its style of play in the best-of-seven series starting Wednesday will move on, the other will get popped out of the Edmonton bubble.
