I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to mock the Detroit Red Wings.
Undoubtedly, Coyotes fans are well aware that Phoenix took both games against the hated Wings this season. In two games, the Coyotes outscored the Wings 9-4, won a majority of the faceoffs and were, basically, better.
At a risk of coming off as bitter, I have to give the Wings some credit. The only reason they’re so despised in Phoenix is because they’ve historically dominated the Coyotes. They always seem to thwart the Coyotes’ chances or hopes and fans don’t like that.
But Coyotes fans have a new boast over Detroit: Mike Smith, the goalie, scored! Enjoy the bragging rights.
