Phoenix Coyotes: Mikkel Boedker and Why I Love Being Right
After tonight’s 2nd game winning goal in OT (once again, they are going to kill me!) it has finally become apparent to the hockey world what I have known all along..that Mikkel Boedker is a real talent and asset. I have written for years about his incredible speed with my chosen nickname for him being “Rockets”. Both goals were a result of his speed to the net.
I am also right in predicting that once again we would hit overtime. It just seemed inevitable from the drop of the puck to the second Coyote goal that Chicago would somehow come back and sure enough they did. These two teams just can’t seem to get enough of each other. Even though they want to beat each other up in the process, Shaw and Smith, Torres and Hossa and Bissonnette and Bolliger have all gotten some major action including games suspensions, misconducts and a disciplinary hearing that Torres will face on Friday. Surely Tyson Nash regrets his “clean hit” comment as much as I did when I concurred.
Phoenix comes home for Saturday’s take all game and I wouldn’t dare make any predictions on it except to say that I am geared up for a bumpy, and possibly long, ride. And so far I can’t be wrong.
