Arizona Coyotes: Strome, Dvorak Both Expected In Lineup Against Montreal
In a move anticipated all summer by fans, Dylan Strome and Christian Dvorak both appear to be in the lineup for tonight’s matchup with the Montreal Canadiens.
Both prospects did make the Coyotes to start the season, but so far Head Coach Dave Tippett has preferred to alternate them as centers on the second line.
Tonight, however, that looks to change as line rushes in practice yesterday had Strome centering the second line and Dvorak centering a newly constructed third line.

It will be fans’ first look at what the team might look like next season and on into the future.
I would expect some magic on Thursday night in Montreal.
Small sample size (17:39 TOI), but Domi/Hanzal/Vrbata line at 67.50 CF% 5-on-5. 2nd best in NHL. You’d think Domi & Vrbata are due.

Despite lukewarm reception to the original first line, however, it was performing pretty well as well…they just weren’t scoring.
