(SportsNetwork.com) - The Arizona Coyotes hope to follow up a win with another strong performance when they host the sliding Ottawa Senators in Saturdays battle at Gila River Arena. The Coyotes have won two of three to begin the month of January and are coming off Thursdays 4-1 triumph over visiting Winnipeg. However, Dave Tippetts club will try to avoid falling into a recent familiar pattern when it takes the ice tonight. Arizona followed up its previous two victories by losing 6-0 in the following game. The Coyotes lost 6-0 to Dallas on New Years Eve, two days after beating Philadelphia, then defeated Columbus 6-3 last Saturday only to follow that victory with Tuesdays 6-0 setback against St. Louis. The Coyotes rebounded from the blowout loss to the Blues on Thursday, when it defeated the Jets to push their record on a six-game homestand to 2-1-0. Mikkel Boedker and Shane Doan each posted three-point nights to help Arizona subdue the Jets. Boedker finished with two goals and an assist, while Shane Doan added a goal and two helpers. Oliver Ekman-Larsson also lit the lamp for the Coyotes and Mike Smith was stellar in between the pipes, stopping 34-of-35 shots to earn just his second win since Dec. 1. Our goaltender was excellent and our special teams were strong, Tippett said. We were just way more competitive tonight. Smith could get the call again on Saturday and owns a 5-3-1 record and 2.93 goals against average in nine career games against Ottawa. Arizona forward Martin Hanzal is questionable for todays game after missing the last two tests with an upper-body injury. Defenseman Zbynek Michalek also missed Thursdays game with an upper-body issue and is questionable for Saturday. The Senators have lost their last three games (0-2-1) and will aim for their first win of a four-game road trip. Ottawa has won in three of its last five stops in Arizona, but the Coyotes are 3-1-1 in the last five encounters overall. Ottawa began its current swing with a shootout defeat Tuesday in Philadelphia before losing 5-2 to the Avalanche on Thursday. The consecutive losses dropped the Sens to 8-11-4 as the visiting team this season. The Senators sent 38 shots on goal, but Semyon Varlamov frustrated the Ottawa offense by making 36 saves. Meanwhile, Craig Anderson didnt come close to matching Varlamovs level of play, allowing three goals on just nine chances before being pulled for Robin Lehner just past the midway mark of the second period. It was not Andys fault, Senators forward Mika Zibanejad said of Ottawas starting goaltender. Weve got to do better with blocking shots and we did not do that (tonight). Mark Stone and Bobby Ryan had the Ottawa goals in a losing effort. Ottawa went 0-for-4 on the power play and hasnt scored in 29 chances with a man advantage over its last eight games. The Senators are ranked 21st in the NHL this season in power-play efficiency. The Sens will close this trek Tuesday night in Dallas. Harry Kane Jersey . They were right in that they responded to coach Randy Carlyles goaltending switch to erase a two-goal deficit. Vincent Janssen Jersey . The Toronto Blue Jays general manager made a series of bold moves that reshaped the club ahead of what would turn out to be a disastrous 2013 campaign. http://www.hotspurfcproshop.com/juan-foy...spur-jersey-uk/. "If we only consider this season," Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said, "there is just one club in Manchester -- and its ours. Toby Alderweireld Jersey . Edwin Encarnacion carried the torch for two days at Fenway Park this week; Melky Cabrera and Jose Bautista have had their moments; lately Anthony Gose has contributed. Eric Dier Jersey . So they rushed to re-sign the first baseman who general manager Ben Cherington described Friday as "a unique player." The World Series champions finalized a $32 million, two-year agreement Thursday with the slugging former catcher who turned into a surprisingly good defender.LONDON -- France needs an unprecedented comeback to avoid missing its first World Cup in 20 years. No European team has ever qualified for the World Cup through the playoffs after losing the first leg 2-0. Two decades after France failed to qualify for the 1994 World Cup following a shock home defeat against Bulgaria, Les Bleus lost to Ukraine for the first time in the first leg by a two-goal margin. That means the odds are indeed heavily stacked against Didier Deschampss team ahead of Tuesdays return game at the Stade de France. The French players display was so poor on Friday that it led the French media to question if the national sides performance had been the "worst in history." To turn around the result, France needs to rediscover its attacking potency as Deschamps - who won the 1998 World Cup and the European championships two years later as a player, must decide who to play up front against an extremely well organized Ukrainian side. "Well need to have that bit of folly that will make for an exceptional match," Deschamps said. "Its up to the players to get into that mentality. But we also have to realize they wont play with 10 players at the back. We have to put them under pressure from the start and show a lot of determination and keep the high tempo going until the end." Flourishing in the Premier League this season, Loic Remy had a poor game on the right wing in Kyiv and could be replaced with Karim Benzema, meaning that Deschamps could keep Olivier Giroud as his central sriker. Samir Nasri had a quiet game and may be replaced in the playmakers role by Mathieu Valbuena. Franck Ribery will also need to raise his game with the national team to prove that he fully deserves the FIFA Ballon dOr. Ribery who struggled to make any meaningful impact in Ukraine, has been tipped to claim the FIFA accolade after helping Bayern Munich to the Champions League. "Obviously, Ukraine knew how dangerous Ribery could be," Deschamps said. "They were very aggressive toward him. They made a lot of fouls that went unpunished. Ukraine eliminated Franck. He had very few chances to take on his opponent one-on-one. There was always a midfielder around to provide back-up." With Laurent Kosccielny suspended after his sending off, Deschamps has a major headache in defence and must decide who will play alongside Eric Abidal.dddddddddddd With Raphael Varane struggling with a sore knee, Deschamps must pick between the inexperienced Mamamdou Sakho and Bacary Sagna. Sagna plays at right back for Arsenal but has played centre half before. "We were shaken over there against a very committed team who played at a very high level while we were average," Deschamps said. "We took a slap and the situation is favourable for them. It wont be easy. Were obviously not in a good position. We have to reverse the trend and believe in this now." After winning the first round of his duel with Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he scored the winner in Portugals 1-0 win over Sweden, Cristiano Ronaldo is hopeful he can again steal the show at the Swedish national stadium on Tuesday night. While Ibrahimovic failed to impress in Lisbon, Ronaldo dived to glance in a left-wing cross for his 44th goal in 108 international appearances, and almost added another when he headed against the crossbar late on. Portugal, which beat Sweden at home for the first time in its history, missed automatic qualification for a major international tournament for the third time in a row after qualifying for the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 through the playoffs. "It was an important goal and it gave us victory," Ronaldo said. "We could have scored one or two more goals but this advantage gives us confidence for the second leg. Nothing is settled yet. Its 50-50." All four return playoffs matches take place on Tuesday, with Greece in a comfortable position following its 3-1 win over Romania in the first leg and Iceland having kept alive its hopes of reaching a first ever World Cup with a 0-0 home draw against Croatia. Several friendly matches involving European powerhouses having already qualified for the finals in Brazil are also scheduled on Tuesday, with England facing bitter rival Germany in Wembley for the showcase match of the evening. The Germans will be missing Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil, Philipp Lahm and Manuel Neuer after coach Joachim Low decided to try "new tactical variations and personnel."
