Last week was a tough one for The Phoenix Coyotes and for me as well. It started out great, the NHL bought the franchise with no opposition and very little negative hoopla. That’s when the trouble started. I came down with bronchitis. Now I am not saying, by any means, that my bronchitis brought on [...]
The theory behind the empty net is simple and can be very effective. Pull your goalie in a close game to add another attacking member of your team on the ice. I’ve seen it work many a time. During the last two Phoenix Coyotes games? Not so much.
In Monday night’s game against the Kings [...]
I know this sounds very confusing but Saturday night’s brawlfest between the Phoenix Coyotes and the Anaheim Ducks got me thinking. I am, by nature, a pacifist. A believer in non-violent conflict resolution, make love not war, peace, love and happiness…but something changed the day I became a hockey fan. When two players drop [...]
This was a piece I wrote about a year ago. I’ve pulled it out of hiding having been inspired by rocknrollnobody’s piece on addiction. Enjoy..

Over the last 24 hours a “tentative” agreement has been made between current owner Jerry Moyes and the NHL for the league to purchase the Phoenix Coyotes. The NHL then intends to sell team to a buyer who intends to keep them here in Phoenix.

Finally! A Coyotes player getting some much needed recognition. Ilya Bryzgalov, goalie extraordinaire, got a major pat on the back from the NHL this week with the first star. I won’t bore you with all the stats but..own this! 3-0-0 Here are some more (fun) reasons why Bryz deserved the top honors.
For having such [...]
Named MVP and 1st Star of Saturday’s game against the Boston Bruins, Captain Shane Doan definitely deserved the honor. With assists on each of the first three goals and looking like the leader we know he is, Shane led the boys to a 4-1 victory against the Bruins. Scottie Upshall with his 2nd star of [...]
Now before the naysayers start in, yes the attendance was lousy for Thursday night’s Coyotes game against the Blues. Yes, it was only around 5000 as opposed to the 17,000+ sell out crowd on WhiteOut night. There was one difference about Thursday though…the Coyotes did win. Despite the poor showing of fans (and yes I [...]
Saturday night marked the first regular season home game for the Phoenix Coyotes against the Columbus Blue Jackets. The theme of the evening was “Welcome Back Whiteout” a throwback to the old Winnipeg Jets days. And despite the disappointing final score of 2-0 here are my reasons why the night was a success:
Number 10: The [...]
The Phoenix Coyotes stormed the Igloo Wednesday night to take on the Pittsburgh Penguins and for their trouble walked away with a 3-0 win. Yes, you heard right..The Phoenix Coyotes beat the Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins in Mellon Arena nonetheless!
In their drive to be taken seriously the Coyotes, coming off a 6-3 win [...]
