  • 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 […]
  • Coyotes with backs against the wall

    The road to the Stanley Cup just got even tougher for the Phoenix Coyotes with a 2-1 loss against the Los Angeles Kings, putting the team down 3-0 in the series. “None of us planned on being in it [down 3-0],” said captain Shane Doan. “I don’t think it’s disbelief, but I think it’s disappointed.” […]
  • Smith: No need to hit the panic button

    Down 2-0, there’s no doubt that the Phoenix Coyotes have a hill to climb if they are going to make a comeback against the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Final. Coach Dave Tippett admits they were outplayed in Game 2, and calls it one of the most lopsided performances he has seen. “We’ve […]
  • Coyotes’ Hanzal suspended for Game 3

    And the road to a comeback just got a little more difficult for the Phoenix Coyotes. Center Martin Hanzal was suspended for one game by NHL discipline chief Brendan Shanahan. The punishment will take Hanzal off the ice for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Kings Thursday night in L.A. […]
  • Coyotes’ Doan, Morris avoid suspension from NHL

    The Phoenix Coyotes are down 2-0 and have been woefully out-played in the Western Conference Finals by the Los Angeles Kings. They’re heading to Los Angeles for games three and four. Let’s face it, this is a hockey team in need of some good news, and on Wednesday, the Coyotes got some concerning their captain […]
  • Coyotes’ Hanzal facing possible discipline

    Phoenix Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal’s status for the remainder of the Western Conference Finals is up in the air. Hanzal received a five-minute boarding major and a game misconduct for his less-than-clean hit on Los Angeles captain Dustin Brown during the third period of the Kings’ 4-0 Game 2 win Tuesday night. A hearing will […]
  • Coyotes show wrong kind of fight in Game 2 loss to Kings

    The old joke nearly rang true Tuesday night in Glendale. I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out! It’s only “nearly” because, honestly, this wasn’t much of a hockey game, though there were plenty of fights — or, at the very least, non-hockey moments. Facing what had been deemed a “must-win” game […]
  • Torres’ suspension appeal set for Thursday

    According to a report, Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres will have his chance to meet with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman to appeal the length of his 25-game suspension. The meeting is scheduled to take place in New York City Thursday morning. Torres was slapped with the longest punishment in the NHL since 2007 for his […]
  • Coyotes have simple solution for Game 2

    It seems that in the time between Sunday’s loss and Tuesday morning’s skate, the Phoenix Coyotes came up with a solution and a game plan for Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against the L.A. Kings. Keep the puck. “They had the puck a lot,” defensemen Derek Morris said Tuesday morning. “We gotta find […]
  • Coyotes face a ‘must-win’ Game 2 vs. Kings

    For the first time this postseason, the Phoenix Coyotes are facing a “must-win” scenario. Because, while a loss Tuesday in Glendale would not mean their postseason run is over, it would be really tough to come back in the series, especially with the next two games being played in Los Angeles. “It’s a huge game, […]
  • Tippett: Concerned about quality shots, not quantity

    It’s been a consistent theme of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Phoenix Coyotes: they get out-shot on a regular basis. Look at the facts… • The Coyotes have been out-shot 451-326 in 12 playoff games. • Phoenix has been out-shot in ten of those games. • That’s an average of 10.4 per contest. […]
  • Winnipeg fans just can’t let it go

    Dear Hockey Fans of Winnipeg, Maybe you failed to notice it through your blinding hatred of Gary Bettman and all things Phoenix, but you have a NHL franchise. Yeah, I’m serious. The Atlanta Thrashers, mired by poor management, closed up shop in Georgia and moved north of the border to call Manitoba home. They just […]
  • Coyotes have much to work on following Game 1 loss to Kings

    There’s a scene in D2: The Mighty Ducks — hell, really any hockey movie – where the team gets run ragged in practice following a poor game, where players are forced to skate until they can’t skate anymore. Coyotes, welcome to your Monday following a Game 1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in the […]
  • Off the Ice: It’s time for big boy hockey

    Well, that sucked. In case you missed it, the Los Angeles Kings rolled over the Phoenix Coyotes in the opening game of the Western Conference Finals, winning by a score that felt much further spread than the final 4-2 scoreline. The Kings came out and dominated the first period, outshooting the Coyotes 17-4. They played […]
