Phoenix Coyotes

An “Engaging” Weekend With The Phoenix Coyotes!

Phoenix CoyotesAlthough The Phoenix Coyotes earned a point in Saturday night’s game against the Florida Panthers, it wasn’t a pretty one. Our Captain, despite a big goal, did not look as though he needed to be on the ice so soon after his injury and the rest of the team wandered about as though still suffering from their Thanksgiving food coma. No excuse for the Canadians and Czechs on the team who don’t celebrate that particular holiday.

Missed opportunities, poor power plays (or as I like to say “powerless” plays) and an overall lack of energy and fire made the game quite painful and, dare I say it, boring to watch. The only one to watch was Ilya Bryzgalov who kept us in it with some amazing goaltending (once again). That and my daughter’s team who played the intermission. My consolation prize after the game was an engagement ring from the boyfriend. Nothing says romance like a shoot out loss!

Now the team that showed up to play against the Anaheim Ducks the next day looked like a whole different group. Tippett must have put a boot up some behinds to get a fire going and going it did. Great goaltending, passing that hit the mark and some physical play ended up earning the Coyotes a shutout victory and quite a nice beatdown of the Ducks’ Parros by own little social media celebrity Paul Bissonnette. Did you know that he’s got almost 15,000 write in votes for the All Star team because of his Twitter prowess?? And who said that social media was just a fad!

We are still on owner watch as Matthew Hulsizer has been quite vocal with the press and demonstrative with his desire to own the team lately. The catch? He has to negotiate a new lease with the City of Glendale…where has this tripped us up before? I will give you a hint..Ice Edge Holdings. Unfortunately, it looks like my annual “All I want for Christmas-Coyotes Edition” post will, once again, feature a wish for new ownership. It’s being reported that the deal could be done as early as next week on the 14th but I am not counting hockey pucks till they hit the back of the net. My version of the chickens hatching thing.

Next up are the Minnesota Elves, oops sorry, Wild. Those uniforms kill me with their red and green but it’s their time of year and who knows what elfin magic they have up their jerseys. I have a feeling though that elves are tastier than Duck and we sure had our fill of that on Sunday. Keep puckin’!
