Phoenix Coyotes

Record Breaking Phoenix Coyotes?

Phoenix CoyotesSome of you may be thinking that’s an oxymoron but Monday night’s game against the Minnesota Wild wasn’t just an average win. Not clad in their usual elfin gear, the Wild just couldn’t seem to hold off our offense, nor could they stop our guys from driving to the net and bringing home a fantastic win of 2-0.

With the shutout Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov is now the leader in shutouts in the NHL. He’s been really giving his all and the team has gotten behind him in a big way. Great job Bryz! The boys have now won 5 in a row, a feat that has eluded them since the 2006-2007 season. Oh yeah, you heard me right but it won’t be the last time this season, mark my words. Taylor Pyatt lit the lamp again, the 3rd time in 3 straight games earning him an official PuckGal hat trick (I like making up my own). Scottie Upshall earns an honorable mention for scoring a goal after being checked silly into the boards and as reported today Ed Jovonovski earned himself a 2 game suspension for a very high elbow to Andrew Ebbett. Congrats guys!

The game was filled with tension after Jovo’s wayward elbow, made even more tense by the fact that The Wild only managed to rack up a pitiful 3 shots on goal in the 3rd. Something had to give and as the game came to a close Keith Yandle engaged in a little shoving match which turned into Vern Fiddler beating James Sheppard onto the ice. A clear win for Vern and very much a Wild incited incident.

So what’s next? Well hopefully a 6th win to further overshadow our winning streak deficits..and some more shutouts wouldn’t be a bad thing either.

Let’s Puck!

  2. I’m curious, does the media coverage been better since the streak got to 4? Cause i know i make jokes and all but a good team is always a good way to bring more people in those seats.

  4. You would think that winning would be drawing more fans but I just haven’t seen it yet. I’ve committed to checking out more local TV sports to see if we are getting any more coverage but so far it’s been pretty quiet. The usual suspects such as KTAR sports are doing a little but with the Cards and the Suns doing well we still rank a distant 3rd as far as coverage goes. It’s sad really. I’ll be back in the arena on Saturday so we’ll see if the wins will make a real visible difference.
