NEW YORK -- No team in the NHL has run as hot and cold this season as the Arizona Coyotes. If the Coyotes are going to begin another surge Friday night, they'll need to take care of the puck better than they did Thursday night.

The Coyotes will look to snap a four-game losing streak Friday, when they visit the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

The game will be the second game of a back-to-back set by the Coyotes, who fell to the host Buffalo Sabres, 3-1, on Thursday. The Rangers last played Monday, when they capped a two-game road trip by losing to the Tampa Bay Lightning, 6-3.

The Islanders play at the Coyotes at Gila River Arena on Monday night, and both teams must be wondering if they can play any better than they did in decisive victories on Saturday.

Giants safety Landon Collins suffered a fractured forearm while tight end Evan Engram and wide receiver Sterling Shepard also left Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals with injuries, according to interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

Collins left the game late in the second quarter on a hit on Arizona's D.J. Foster. One play after he was taken out of the game, Drew Stanton threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald that gave the Cardinals a 10-0 lead.

THE GAME

The Giants (2-12) at the Arizona Cardinals (6-8) at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Sunday, Dec. 24, at 4:25 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

Brrrr. … It'll only be in the low 70s on Sunday with partly cloudy skies. Good thing there's a retractable roof out there to keep everyone comfortable.

WHAT IT MEANS

Nothing at all. Go enjoy your Christmas Eve dinner. Pay no attention to this mess.

The Arizona Coyotes are off to the worst start in franchise history at 0-9-1. They've had every problem imaginable but one of them -- goaltending -- could be solved Saturday.

Antti Raanta, acquired in the offseason to serve as the Coyotes' No. 1 goaltender, could return from a two-week absence due to a lower-body injury to face the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center. He was on the ice Wednesday and practiced Friday, and the coaching staff feels he could be ready.

The Arizona Coyotes couldn't wait for a New Year's break. The New York Islanders wanted to keep playing. There was a simple reason for both desires.

Arizona had lost eight straight games without registering a point before their five-day break. Then came Friday's overtime loss in Anaheim -- the Coyotes' first point since Dec. 15. The Islanders had won four of five before their five-day break, but dropped a 2-1, overtime decision on Friday in Colorado against the Western Conference's worst team.
