Coach Terry Murray, meanwhile, had not quite decided Wednesday who will play on the fourth line. Alexei Ponikarovsky, Kyle Clifford, Trevor Lewis and Kevin Westgarth all practiced on the fourth line. The Coyotes are coming off a 3-2 loss at home to Dallas on Tuesday in which they gave up a power-play goal with five seconds left. Phoenix is 0-3-1 in its last four games.
