Today in the Phoenix Coyotes locker room at the Alltel Iceden after morning skate it was very evident that every player in the room believes they are in the heart of the playoff chase. As TV Color Analyst Darren Pang would say, "Why wouldn't they"?

This team led by Captain Shane Doan has been solid at both ends of the ice all year. That combined with superior goaltending and great contributions from a variety of sources has given fans in Phoenix a reason to believe.

With a record of 21-18-1 after 40 games, the Coyotes are one game away from reaching the midway point of the season. The next nine games before the All Star break will be crucial in determining how real this surprising team's playoff chances are.

We caught up with several members of the team and Head Coach Wayne Gretzky to get their thoughts on where the team is at before embarking on a tough four game road trip.
