Colorado could be without Colin Wilson on Saturday as the veteran center exited the loss to the Blackhawks early in the third period with an upper-body injury. The 29-year-old, who was selected by Nashville with the seventh overall pick in the 2008 draft, has scored half of his eight goals this season on the power play. Nathan MacKinnon, who trails Rantanen by three points and also has recorded 18 multi-point efforts, had his seven-game streak (two goals, 10 assists) come to an end on Friday.

Ekman-Larsson has scored three of his four goals this season on the power play, and his 47 man-advantage tallies since the start of the 2013-14 campaign are the most among NHL defensemen. Clayton Keller shares the team lead with eight goals but is in the midst of a nine-game drought. Half of the tallies netted by the 20-year-old, who is 10 points shy of 100 for his career, have been game-winners.

The Coyotes have lost four straight and eight of their last nine at home (1-7-1).
