  • 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 […]
  • Roenick: Tippett epitomizes class

    Jeremy Roenick, former Phoenix Coyote and current analyst for the NBC network joined Arizona Sports 620’s Doug & Wolf Show Friday to talk about the team’s success so far in the post season. “They’ve done so much to bring awareness into the Valley, into the game and into their team,” said Roenick. “Their PR staff […]
  • Rested Coyotes are ready to play

    “It’s good to have the rest,” defenseman Keith Yandle said. “Obviously it’s playoff time, you need the rest, you need to heal the bumps and bruises.” By the time the puck drops on the Western Conference Final series between the Coyotes and Kings, five full days will have passes since the last time Phoenix took […]
  • Off the Ice: Reliefs vs. Concerns in Coyotes vs. Kings

    We finally know the dates of the Western Conference Final between the Los Angeles Kings and Phoenix Coyotes. This series, in my opinion, is going to be one of the craziest we’ve seen in the playoffs so far. The Kings, once earlier this season a laughing stock of offensive ineptitude, are now firing on all […]
  • Coyotes, Kings know each other well

    As the saying goes, familiarity breeds contempt. If it holds true, the Western Conference Final series between the Phoenix Coyotes and Los Angeles Kings will be one that is not short on, shall we say, physicality? “Obviously, this is playoff hockey, so we know what to expect,” forward Boyd Gordon said. “I think it’s going […]
  • Western Conference Finals to open Sunday in Glendale

    The Phoenix Coyotes and Los Angeles Kings finally know when their Western Conference Finals series will begin. The NHL announced Thursday that Game 1 will start at 5:00 p.m. Arizona time, with the puck dropping on Game 2 Tuesday at 6 p.m. Dates and times for games three and four, which will take place in […]
  • Maloney: We need people to come back

    The Phoenix Coyotes are no stranger to the underdog role, and neither are the Los Angeles Kings. Both teams were expected to be out of the playoffs in the second, if not first rounds, and thrive off of being counted out. Both teams reside in cities where winning is all that matters. Phoenix is notorious […]
  • No love lost in Western Conference Finals

    The Western Conference is down to just two teams; both of whom were widely predicted by most ‘experts’ to be eliminated in the first round. The two have met each other time and time again in the regular season, but never in postseason play. The Los Angeles Kings entered the playoffs as the 8th seed […]
  • Valley catching Coyotes Fever

    Phoenix has long lived with the label of being a bandwagon sports town. It’s one of the perils of being a relatively new professional sports market and a city known for its melting pot feel and lack of natives. But if Phoenix sports fans are given a reason to root, by God, they’ll root. And […]
  • Coyotes are underdogs once again

    For the third straight playoff series the Phoenix Coyotes will enter as underdogs. Sure, they are the highest seed left in the Western Conference. And yes, they have had home ice advantage in each of their first two series. But even as they prepare for the 8th-seeded Los Angeles Kings — who the Coyotes beat […]
  • A rare ‘thank you’ to Raffi Torres

    Not many people around the hockey world are sending thank you notes to suspended Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres. Torres made continental headlines last month after leveling Chicago’s Marian Hossa in Game 3 of the first round playoff series between the Coyotes and Blackhawks. The hit did not draw a penalty, but did result in […]
