Inside the Box: Red Wings blitz Coyotes early

After every Phoenix Coyotes game we’ll examine the
box score and provide you with instant analysis. So it’s
time to go Inside the Box for April 16, 2011: Red Wings 4, Coyotes
3

The Good:

After falling behind 4-0 the Coyotes stormed back to make
it a game, drawing within one goal at 8:37 in the third
period. Captain Shane Doan had two goals and one assist,
almost singlehandedly willing the Desert Dogs back into
the game. Going 3 for 7 on the power play didn’t hurt,
either.

The Bad:

Penalties, penalties and more penalties. Detroit’s first
two goals came on the power play, and at that point
momentum was squarely in Detroit’s corner. Another slow
start for Ilya Bryzgalov didn’t help things either, then
again he was not getting much help from his defense at the
time.

The Funky:

All told the Coyotes actually out-shot the Red Wings 33-
31, 25 of which came after the first period.
