Penguins, Coyotes facing similar issues ahead of matchup

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Looking at the big picture, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Arizona Coyotes couldn't be more dissimilar. The Penguins are coming off consecutive Stanley Cup wins. The Coyotes only infrequently win consecutive games.

But, right now, Mike Sullivan of Pittsburgh and Rick Tocchet of Arizona -- coaches who shared the same bench last season -- are going through very similar problems, even if the talent levels and records of their clubs are far different.

The Penguins (16-14-3), despite all their skills and superstars and superior achievements, have dropped their last three games and four of five, all by one goal. All of a sudden, the talk in Pittsburgh isn't of a third consecutive Cup parade, but whether the Penguins will make the make the playoffs -- they currently occupy the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff position.
