The scheduling format calls for six games (three home, three away) against Pacific Divison rivals Anaheim, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Jose; four games (two home, two away) against the rest of the Western Conference; and 18 games against Eastern Conference opponents. The Coyotes will play home-and-home series against Boston, Buffalo and Carolina and single games against the other 12 Eastern teams.
