Phoenix Coyotes

The Phoenix Coyotes Streak All Week

Phoenix CoyotesThe Coyotes incredible six game winning streak over the last couple of weeks has had team written all over it. With top scorer Scottie Upshall out with a torn ACL it’s been up to everyone on the team to take up the slack and so they have. Shane Doan scored 6 goals in these last games earning him the 1st NHL Star of the Week and our defenseman have been playing like they are on the offense with Keith Yandle leading the charge in double digits goals and the shootout King Adrian Aucoin playing well in the pressure cooker of the shootout.

And it’s unlikely for the go-to guy in a shootout to be a defenseman. But unlikely or not, that’s what we have in Adrian Aucoin. The defenseman won the whole shooting match for us in a recent game against Nashville, scoring the only goal of the game in a shootout. And in Friday night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks it was Aucoin who once again lent his wrist shot to get the win. 2 consecutives games, 2 consecutive shots in shootouts to victory. Do we dare say he’s streaking?

In a conversation with Todd Walsh, he was asked how he felt about the streak. He kinda chuckled and replied that he was “nervous” about the possibility of being called upon each time and the expectation that would result. Even his wife couldn’t believe it. During his shot on Chicago, she thought the game was a replay of Nashville. Aucoin’s son assured her that “he did it again”.

As it must, all good things come to an end and Saturday’s loss against the Dallas Stars was as spectacular a loss as all those 6 wins put together. 4-0 and the only good thing out of that game was the Paul Bissonnette beat down of Khrys Barch. There is no doubt however, that the Phoenix Coyotes will get back on track and start “streaking” again.

Let’s Puck!

  3. I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be
    using? I’m having some small security problems with
    my latest blog and I’d like to find something more safe.
    Do you have any suggestions?
