What do the Phoenix Coyotes and 1967-68 Oakland Seals have in common?
Captain Shane Doan’s 10th goal of the year at the 11:28 mark of the third period Tuesday night kept the Coyotes from joining the Seals as the only two teams in NHL history to go four straight games without a goal since 1929-30.
Before Doan’s goal, Phoenix had gone scoreless for a franchise-record 245 minutes and 33 seconds — dating back to Rob Klinkhammer’s tally at the 9:05 mark of third period against the Los Angeles Kings on March 12.
Doan later added his second goal of the night, but the Coyotes dropped their fifth straight on the road with a 3-2 loss to the Kings.
During their scoreless streak, the Coyotes were shut out by three different goaltenders (Jake Allen, Sergei Bobrovsky and Jonathan Quick).
