Coyotes’ near-goal proves that the laws of physics hate them
This is about as close as you can get to scoring a goal without it counting.
Against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, Radim Vrbata’s shot in the first period was redirected just left of the net by Martin Hanzal and past goaltender Martin Jones. A few Coyotes players threw their arms up in celebration as the puck rattled along both posts — that until they realized it wasn’t a goal.
Oh so close for Vrbata. But Coyotes and Sharks are scoreless in San Jose. Catch the rest of the game on FOX Sports Arizona or FOX Sports Go. pic.twitter.com/ogQlCFA5f9

The puck, which needs to cross the goal line completely, clanged off the front of the left post and straddled the goal line before clipping the right post and being swept out of the goal by the Sharks.
Here’s another couple of angles that showed just how close the near-goal by Arizona was to being a score.
The laws of physics are clearly no fans of the Coyotes.
