  • NHL looking into Coyotes’ Game 5 comments

    There’s no denying that the Phoenix Coyotes were beaten soundly in the Western Conference Finals by the Los Angeles Kings. There’s also no denying that following Tuesday night’s Game 5 overtime loss which ended their season, the Coyotes, to a man, were steamed about what they perceived to be horrible officiating. Dustin Brown’s knee-on-knee hit […]
  • Postseason run over; focus turns to ownership

    The excitement that built up in the Valley over the Phoenix Coyotes’ march to the Western Conference Finals has now come to a halt. Of course, the ‘Yotes were eliminated by the Los Angeles Kings in five games, ending the best single season in team history. And now, for the fourth straight offseason, the Coyotes […]
  • Off the Ice: 2011-2012 season the renaissance of Coyotes hockey

    It’s over. The Phoenix Coyotes’ NHL season and incredible playoff run came to a devastating end on Tuesday when the Los Angeles Kings netted an overtime winner to book their first trip to the Stanley Cup Final since 1993. And I couldn’t be more proud of the Coyotes. Here’s a short list of accomplishments from […]
  • Contract for Doan, extension for Smith are ‘Yotes’ priorities

    The best season in Phoenix Coyotes history has come to an end, and now the focus for general manager Don Maloney turns to the future. Still operating under the parameters of league ownership, Maloney faces an offseason where several of his key players are unrestricted free agents. That list includes captain Shane Doan, the longest-tenured […]
  • L.A.’s Brown won’t face hearing for Rozsival hit

    Moments before Dustin Penner beat Mike Smith for the series-clinching goal that sent the Los Angeles Kings to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Phoenix Coyotes were disconcerted. First, they were unraveled by an injury to Michal Rozsival that sent the Coyotes defenseman straight to the dressing room late in the overtime period. Secondly, they were […]
  • Magical season ends on sour note for Coyotes

    Shane Doan sat at his locker in the Coyotes dressing room, quiet and alone in his thoughts. His team, hoping to become just the fourth team in NHL history to rally from an 0-3 deficit and win a postseason series, lost to the Kings 4-3 in overtime. The most magical season in franchise history came […]
  • Coyotes captain Shane Doan goes off on officials after loss to Kings

    Shane Doan was not happy following his team’s 4-3 loss to the Kings, one that eliminated the Coyotes from the postseason. Sure, watching the Kings advance to the Stanley Cup Final would be upsetting enough — especially when it happens on your home ice — but that’s not what had the captain’s attention after the […]
  • Coyotes once again face elimination at hands of Kings

    The Phoenix Coyotes, on the day of Game 5, are in the same place they were when Game 4 ended. Win, and they stay alive. Lose, and a magical season comes to an end. Got the Kings right where they want ’em, right? Not exactly. “Our backs are against the wall,” Coyotes coach Dave Tippett […]
  • Off the Ice: Coyotes finally save face in Kings series

    I played for an atrociously bad high school soccer team when I was younger, and I know what it feels like to be dominated in every facet of a series against a team. But I also know what it feels like to take one from a team, to steal that sweep away. They can talk […]
  • Phoenix Coyotes’ quest for the cup is ‘not dead yet’

    Shane Doan has a message for anyone who has already given up on the Coyotes. “We’re not dead yet,” he told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf. “I feel like the guy from Monty Python’s, we’re not dead yet. We’re going to hang in there.” The universally-laughed at scene Doan is referencing is from Monty […]
  • Coyotes attempting to join rare group

    The Phoenix Coyotes are trying to break into a very exclusive group. Dave Tippett’s team is attempting to become only the fourth team ever to climb out of a 3-0 deficit to win a Stanley Cup Playoff series, joining the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, 1975 New York Islanders and 2010 Philadelphia Flyers. The ‘Yotes took […]
  • Coyotes beat Kings, Arizona gets its Game 5

    I thought the Coyotes were done. Following Thursday’s 2-1 loss I texted a friend, who happens to be a Kings fan, and told him I’d be shocked if we get a Game 5. His response: “So would the Coyotes.” I did not think the Coyotes had it in them to beat the Kings, as it […]
  • Tippett: Find ways to create opportunities

    Analysts across the NHL have been giving Jonathan Quick all of the credit in the Phoenix Coyotes series against the Los Angeles Kings, in which the Coyotes trail 3-0. Coyotes coach Dave Tippett, however, believes they haven’t done a great deal to challenge Quick. “I don’t think we’ve tested Quick enough yet,” Tippett said. “They’ve […]
  • Bad refs are a natural part of Arizona sports

    Phoenix teams and their fans are no strangers to poor officiating. Many a time has a game, series or season turned on some questionable calls, which consistently seem to go against Arizona’s teams. Are we complaining too much when, in reality, our teams are just not better? Perhaps. But that doesn’t change the frustration of […]
  • For Coyotes, series is over when focus turns to refs

    “Ultimately, you know, they’re a pretty good team. They’re getting some breaks on some calls I think that eventually wore us down.” And with that quote from Coyotes coach Dave Tippett, you can officially put the 2011-12 season to bed for the Desert Dogs. Their magical postseason run, one that seemed like it could be […]
