TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Don’t look now but the Arizona Coyotes might be one of the most exciting teams in the NHL.

At least to watch anyway. 

This after a dreadful 2014-15 season that saw the club lose 58 of their 82 games and miss the playoffs for a third consecutive year.

Late last season the Coyotes traded veteran defenseman Keith Yandle to the New York Rangers for 19-year old forward prospect Anthony Duclair.

Duclair this season has teamed with rookie Max Domi, the Coyotes 2013 first round pick, to spark the club to a 3-2-1 start.

Arizona won their first three games by a combined score of 10-2 but have since lost three straight (one overtime loss), allowing 12 goals.

Domi and Duclair, who have been tabbed the Killer D’s, have combined to score seven goals and dish out five assists in the club’s first seven games.

Duclair already has a hat trick this season.

He returns to face his former club Thursday night when the Coyotes visit the Rangers at Madison Square Garden for the second game of a five-game eastern swing.
