October 23, 2015 | 0 Comments

It was a face-off between two players traded to vastly different clubs. Keith Yandle, statistically one of the greatest Coyotes defensemen, was shipped to the eventual Eastern Conference Finalist New York Rangers. Coming back on the return to cellar-dwelling Arizona was former 2nd round draft pick Anthony Duclair, a budding offensive talent who had already...

In A Tailspin, Coyotes Lose To Devils In OT

October 21, 2015 | 0 Comments

The season started out bright and full of promise. A win against the Kings. Another against the Penguins. A third win against the Ducks. All good teams, but all teams that started out the season in the proverbial gutter. There were a few signs of struggle, particularly in the luck-laden first game against the Kings....

Special teams took a night off in Glendale as the Coyotes took six penalties, gave up three power play goals, and allowed one of their own power plays to be thwarted late by giving up a short handed goal to fall 5-3 to the big and bad kind of decent Bruins. Here’s how it went...

The boys took their 3-0 record back to Gila River Arena to face off against the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night. Unfortunately, while the 3-0 record showed up for the first period, the majority team did not arrive until midway through the second and the game got a little too far out of hand early....

The Yotes made their second trip to California this season for a one night stand with the Stanley Cup favorite Anaheim Ducks. Mike Smith was once again in net facing off against backup Anton Khudobin. It didn’t take long for that to change. What went down: Anthony Duclair took a nifty faceoff win from Martin...

It is well known throughout the hockey world that no one likes the Penguins. Crosby, Malkin, and now that cherub faced sniper Phil Kessel cavort to create a dynamic of hate that’s nearly unparalleled for a non-original six club. Good thing we beat ’em. With a neat little introduction to the team, the pack set...

The season is here. Our cries were heard and the NHL finally relented and allowed real, official hockey to begin…on Wednesday. Here in the desert we had to wait til Friday night, though, but boy was it worth it. Zbinek Michalek scored early in the 1st on a knuckler. Oliver Ekman-Larsson beat Quick near the...

The Coyotes were shut out for another preseason game – that’s three in a row for those counting at home – and finished the last of their warmup contests 0-5-1 for preseason, a bit of foreshadowing for what we could be in store for across the next 82 games this season. The Coyotes gave up...

Coyotes Shut Out Yet Again, Lose To Edmonton 4-0

September 29, 2015 | 0 Comments

On a night where Oliver Ekman-Larsson was a scratch along with the Coyotes playing back-to-back games, you could probably reasonably expect a couple of goals to leak by Anders Lindback. I don’t know that you’d expect a hat trick from a guy like Anton Lander, but a few goals, sure. No goals in two straight...

Coyotes Shut Out By Markstrom, Canucks 1-0

September 28, 2015 | 0 Comments

The Yotes finally made it onto a television near you this preseason. While thankful, a 1-0 game where the boys get shutout is not how I wanted to begin my television viewing of the club this season thank you very much. Arizona outshot Vancouver in the first and second periods to the tune of 24-10,...
