GLENDALE, Ariz. The Phoenix Coyotes will open the 2013-14 season at home on Thursday, Oct. 3, against the New York Rangers. The season opener at Jobing.com Arena will be followed by the team's longest road trip of the season -- a five-game, nine-day swing that sends them to play against the San Jose, the New York Islanders, Detroit, Philadelphia and Carolina. The Coyotes will break for the 2014 Olympic Games from Feb. 9-26. The NHLs scheduling format will see the Coyotes play five games each against Pacific Division rivals Anaheim, Calgary, Edmonton, Los Angeles and Vancouver. The Coyotes will also meet San Jose four times for a total of 29 division contests. They will face the remaining seven Western Conference teams three times each, and will play home and away games against each of the 16 Eastern Conference teams. The scheduling format means that for the first time ever, the Coyotes will play every Original Six team at Jobing.com Arena: Boston (March 22), Chicago (Nov. 30 and Feb. 7), Detroit (Oct. 19), Montreal (March 6), New York Rangers (Oct. 3) and Toronto (Jan. 20). Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals will visit Jobing.com Arena on Nov. 9; while Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and the Pittsburgh Penguins will play in Glendale on Feb. 1. December sees the Coyotes on the road for nine games and at home for only four, but they follow that with 10 home games and five on the road in January. The Coyotes longest home stand in 2013-14 is six games (Dec. 31 through Jan. 11) and will feature Edmonton (Dec. 31), Columbus (Jan. 2), Philadelphia (Jan. 4), Calgary (Jan. 7), Minnesota (Jan. 9) and Anaheim (Jan. 11). The Coyotes will also have a five-game home stand from Jan. 28 through Feb. 7. The Coyotes will close out the regular season playing five of their last eight games at home, including the regular season finale against Dallas on Sunday, April 13. The traditional starting times will be 7 p.m. for weekday home games and 6 p.m. for weekend home games, with a pair of exceptions: 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 20, vs. Toronto, and 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 15, vs. Calgary. The Coyotes play two of their seven preseason games at home: Sept. 15 vs. Los Angels and Sept. 27 vs. San Jose. For ticket information, call 480-563-PUCK or visit PhoenixCoyotes.com.
