GLENDALE, Arizona (Ticker) -- The Columbus Blue Jackets try to hand the Phoenix Coyotes their 10th loss in 12 games when they match up on Friday at Glendale Arena.

The Coyotes are 1-8-1-1 in their last 11 contests.

Phoenix, which is opening a five-game homestand, is coming off a 5-2 loss at Detroit on Wednesday. Chris Gratton and Fredrik Sjostrom scored for the Coyotes, who trailed by just 3-2 before giving up two goals in the final two minutes.

Phoenix was missing leading scorer Ladislav Nagy, who suffered a wrist injury Monday against St. Louis and is out indefinitely.

The Blue Jackets saw their road winless streak reach eight games (0-5-3) on Wednesday with a 3-1 setback at Anaheim.

Geoff Sanderson scored early in the first period for Columbus, which was opening a four-game road trip.

The Blue Jackets have not won on the road since beating San Jose on January 8.

Phoenix is 1-0-2 against Columbus this season. The teams skated to a 3-3 tie here on February 2.
