Of all the certainties with the Coyotes the last few seasons -- a stingy defense, an unflashy offense and an underlying blue-collar work ethic -- lengthy losing streaks in the spring aren't one of the more flattering staples. But since the Coyotes have rallied from those pitfalls with remarkable efficiency, maybe it's not a bad memory to consider amid their current five-game slide.
