    I hate writing this piece. Not only because this means the Phoenix Coyotes’ season is done for the year, but writing it for the second time in a row in mid-April makes it all the more painful. Also, this is your chance to laugh at how wrong I was. After such a promising start, the […]

  • Coyotes’ woeful stretch run shows it’s time for change

  • Off the Ice: Confidence key if Coyotes are going to make playoffs

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — Confidence is a funny thing. Too low of an amount and a man can look diminished, weak. Too much and the man grows too tall, easily tripping himself up.

  • Off the Ice: Should the Phoenix Coyotes make a move for a left wing?

    Let’s talk trades, shall we? As it stands, the Phoenix Coyotes are a bubble team this season at best. I’m not bashing the team, but being realistic. They’re not giving their defense the leads it needs, and they are finding ways to let points slip through their fingers. It’s simple. So, where’s the problem? As […]
  • By the Numbers: Smith’s shutout trips up Blackhawks
