As November ends the Coyotes stats have come down to earth! Looking at the difference in the players on pace numbers after October and after November we see just how bad of a month some of our players had,

December 3, 2013

The first game of December sees the Coyotes in Edmonton to take on the Oilers (15-12-1). The Coyotes took game one of the series 4-0 on October 26th in Arizona and the Oilers will be looking to get back into the series and keep up there winning record.

The Oilers jumped out to the early lead in this game and by the middle of the second period had a 4-1 lead on the Coyotes. The Coyotes didn't lose due to lack of trying as they did end up scoring 4 goals in the game but the oilers offence was too much for the Coyote defence and they walk away with the 6-4 win.
 
December 4, 2013
The Second game of December is a back-to-back game in Calgary (6-19-1) to take on the leagues worst team. The Coyotes really need a win in this game as they only hold onto the 7th seed spot by a small 3 point margin. Arizona did beat the Flames 5-2 on October 22 in Arizona.

The Coyotes have a HUGE bounce back game. This win goes to the offence but Backup goaltender Thomas Griess had a great game as well to get the Coyotes first win of December. The Coyotes offence exploded in the first period netting 4 goals on only 9 shots! the Coyotes also played great defence and even though they took a hideous 7 penalties they were able to go 4-7 on the PK while going 2-3 on the PP. 
 
December 6, 2013
Continuing on their road trip the Coyotes take on the team a spot ahead of them on the standings, the Vancouver Canucks (14-13-3). The Canucks beat the Coyotes earlier this season 2-1 in Arizona and the Coyotes would like nothing more then to go into Vancouver and draw even on the season series, as well as pass them for the 6th seed in the West.

The Coyotes came out firing on all cylinders in this game and opened up a huge 4-1 lead heading into the second period. However they were unable to keep up the intensity and by the end of the second they had that 4-1 lead into a 6-4 lead. The Canucks came out in the third firing away and were able to tie the game with less then 5 minutes to go! The game went all the way to a SO where the Canucks Daniel Sedin was the only player to score and gave the win to the Canucks. The coyotes will have to settle with the 1 point and take the silver lining where they can.
 
December 10, 2013
The Coyotes continue their road trip (1-1-1) into Colorado (13-12-3) a team that shut them out last month in a sad 2-0 loss. The Coyotes are looking to take back a few spots in the Western conference as well as show others that they are still a team to be feared! the Ave's are on the other spectrum as they have been battling to get into the Western Conferences top 8 for over a month now and a win against they Coyotes would put them right on track!
343p83k.png
After a pretty boring first period the Coyotes start the scoring out with a goal from Vrbata. The Coyotes go on to tally 3 more goals coming from Hanzal, Moss, and then again Vrbata. The Ave's are able to tally once on the PP from Duchene but it isn't enough to take out the Coyotes who get their second win and get point 5 of possible 8 on this road trip.
 
December 12, 2013
The Coyotes are back from their short road trip (2-1-1) Where they nabbed 5 of 8 points on the road and has put them in the position to make strides up the Western Conference as they hold games on every team above them and if they can capitalize could move as high as 3rd place! Tonight they take on the Eastern New York Islanders (17-11-4) who sit 7th in the East. The Coyotes hope to continue their strong play over the past week and to take out a powerful Eastern team while the Islanders are looking to just keep up and not get pushed out of the tough Eastern Conference playoff run. The Coyotes did take the game they had against the Islanders 5-2 on October 8th.
2dbo410.png
The Islanders came to play and capitalized on what has become a very rare occurrence of a bad game by Mike Smith. The Islanders opened the game by going up 3-0 within the first 5 minutes of the game and they never looked back trading goals with the Coyotes twice and finishing the game 5-2.
 
December 14, 2013
Todays home game comes against the Carolina Hurricanes (16-15-2) who are looking to get even with the Coyotes who beat them 3-1 in Carolina on October 13th. The Coyotes are looking for a huge win tonight that would move them up the standings and give them some room for error later down the stretch of the season.
121cvg3.png
With what turned out to be a very boring game the Hurricanes take away the 1-0 win and the Coyotes loss two straight at home. The Coyotes have been blowing the chance to move up the Western Conference order and have not capitalized on the games that matter against Eastern teams that are out of the playoff run! Some wonder if a change is afoot in the Coyote locker room.
 
December 17, 2013
After a short 3 day break the Coyotes head to Montreal to take on the Canadians (21-13-1) who are a powerhouse Eastern team. If the Coyotes could take out a team like the Canadians it would boost not other their confidence but also the confidence of the fans and management. The Canadians are a power team who has lost very few games and who are on the hunt to win the cup this year.
28m1nvp.png
The Canadians jumped out to the lead with a PP goal in the first and held the lead heading into the second. The Second was the time when the Coyotes were able to fight their way back into the game as they tied up the game with a goal from Yandle. But the Canadians would put a final goal up in the third and the Coyote offence was unable to tie it up again and the Coyotes drop another very winnable game. To add another down side to this game the Coyotes hot hand third line winger David Moss (10G-11A in 33GP) is out for 17 days with an elbow injury.

The Coyotes see themselves for the first time this season outside the top 8 spot in the Western Conference and slowly dipping into the lower parts of the League. Today they find themselves up against the Toronto Maple Leafs (21-12-3) in what has become a must win game for the Coyotes.
fm2b02.png
The Coyotes and Maple Leafs play tough in this game however it is the leafs who get the win in the final few minutes of the game on a Lupul PP goal! The Coyotes drop another winnable game and GM Wells has gone on record stating that the Coyotes have become complacent and okay with losing but it isn't okay with him and he wouldn't allow it!
 
December 21, 2013
The Coyotes take on the #1 team in the East tonight in Ottawa (25-9-3). The Coyotes who have been slumping since the start of November are looking for a way to get up and start winning some games again as the environment seems to be getting very sour in the locker room. A win tonight against the powerhouse Ottawa Senators would do wonders to help uplift the spirits of the broken Coyote players.
1539pw6.png
After a hard fought 60 minutes that saw the Coyotes losing and winning by 1 at any given time the Ottawa Senators stud forward Bobby Ryan gives the Senators the win midway through the OT period. The Coyotes do leave this game with the win and that is something that has given some hope to followers of the team as they are hoping for a turnaround with the way the Coyotes have played against some tough Eastern teams as of late. Over the wire it is heard that powerhouse player Radim Vrbata has Substained a Mid body injury and will be out for at least 4 weeks of play! this is a huge hit to the Coyotes and Vrbata who is in his last year of contract and has made it known he is testing the Free Agency waters. In his absence the Coyotes bring up Jordan Szwarz from the Portland Pirates who has 14 points in 25 games.
 
December 23, 2013
The Coyotes are in Buffalo to take on the Sabres (18-15-3) in what is a very winnable game for the Coyotes and one that they need to win to stop their slide deeper into the bottom of the league. 
5xr8me.png
After a good first and second period the Coyotes lose the game in the third and continue the drop from top to one of the leagues bottom feeders. Nothing really positive can be said about this game as the Coyotes have continued to lose very winnable games.
 
December 25, 2013
HUGE NEWS coming out of Arizona as they have sent 32 year old Radim  Vrbata and 2014 second round pick to the Edmonton Oilers for 20 year old Nail Yakapov! 
GM Wells said "We here at Arizona would like to thank Vrbata for his service that he has done as a Coyote but felt that since he refused to talk about a contract extension we as an organization needed to get something in return for the investment we have put into him."
 
December 27, 2013
Tonight the Arizona Coyotes will host the second placed San Jose Sharks (20-14-3) and look to add to the great performances they have had this season against the Coyotes! The Coyotes are looking for anything this game to maybe light a spark under their asses and GM Wells is hoping that the addition of young Russian stud Nail Yakapov will help!
168c27q.png
The Coyotes come out and DOMINATE the San Jose Sharks in a 6-0 route! A bit of a surprise in the way that the Coyotes have been playing of late but a great boast for the players and a great Christmas present for GM Wells!
 
December 28, 2013
Tonight is another huge game for the Coyotes as they head to Anahiem to take on the Ducks (17-19-3). A win here would take the Coyotes and put them back into the 8th seed, a position currently held by the Ducks themselves! Arizona is 2-1-0 against the Ducks however they are going to be going into this game as a back-to-back and starting backup tender Thomas Greiss.
wsw9jr.png
2djqk9k.png
After a pretty slow start that left the Ducks leading 2-1 the Coyotes bounced back in the 2nd to take the 3-2 lead. All looked really good for the Coyotes but backup Greiss couldn't withstand the onslaught from the Ducks and they tied it up 3-3. OT wasn't enough and the Ducks and Coyotes went to a shootout that went 8 rounds deep! but they Ducks took it and the Coyotes drop once again a very winnable game!
 
December 31, 2013
New Years eve and the Coyotes play host to the Edmonton Oilers (19-21-1) and with a win tonight the Coyotes could take themselves from 11 to 7th in the Western Conference. The Coyotes have had a roller coaster of a past few months and are looking for a way to settle into a more stable routine.
291f31y.png
hu39fo.png

 

And the Coyotes fail to win a game in regulation again! the Coyotes take another game to OT and once again fail to capitalize and lose to the Edmonton Oilers. GM Wells does not know what to do and says that nothing is out of the question going forward!

Again lots of development happens to the young guns in the Arizona Coyotes organization and GM Wells assures everyone that he believes that the Coyotes will become a power house team soon enough.

I was saying on the OOTP forums as well -- Enstrom is standing out for D. Carter and Kopitar look deadly on the PowerPlay.

haha no he is on pace for 80 points at the end of the season, in 37 games he has 38 points. a huge bounce back since November when he was on pace for 66 points at the end of the season.

January 2, 2014

 
The first game of the year sees the Arizona Coyotes taking on the Columbus Blue Jackets (22-15-3). 
wjazgz.png
 
The Coyotes are once again out shot and outplayed in the 60 minute contest giving up over 35 shots and barely getting past 25 for themselves. Coach Wells says that there is going to be a change in the way the team plays and the output should change quickly!
 
January 4, 2014
The second game of the new year sees the Flyers (23-15-3) head into Arizona. The Coyotes coach Dean Wells said before the game that the team is looking to get more shots on net and pay better attention to the defensive end as well. He wants his guys to be out there playing their hearts out and if they aren't going to do that they better be ready to be hitting the bench or a new roster!
 
The First period is not what Coach Wells wanted as his Coyotes were only able to get a potful 2 shots on goal in the entire period. Mike Smith plays great in goal for the Coyotes and not only stops all 10 shots he faced but also helps the Coyotes kill off both the PK they faced so far.
 
The second period finally sees the Coyotes get some shots on goal with the total jumping up to 11 (which still is not good enough for Coach Wells) the Coyotes have also been fighting up tons of penalties as they have been in the box a total of 13 minutes in the 40 minute game. The Period did see the Coyotes score on a goal from Yakupov assisted by Ribeiro and Michalek! Mike Smith continues to blank the flyers and has faced a reasonable 18 shots.
 
The Coyotes defence and offence show up in the third period as they hold the flyers to 6 shots and get 13 of their own to even the shot totals at 24. As well the Coyotes PK played amazing killing off 7 of the 8 PK opportunities. The Third period saw 3 goals, 2 from the Coyotes and 1 from the Flyers as the Coyotes come away with a win and a game that Coach Wells describes as "somewhat acceptable"

January 7, 2014
Tonights home game brings the Calgary Flames (15-24-3) into town. The Coyotes who are coming off of a win against the Flyers are looking to win the third straight game against the Flames so far this season and get closer to the 8th playoff position.
 
The first period shows that each teams shooters are in the building as a whopping 14 shots are send on net. The Coyotes have been in some trouble as Klinkhammer is given a game misconduct and the Coyotes spend 14 minutes on the PK to start the game. After a quick PP goal by the Flames put them up 1-0 within the first few minutes of the game a SH goal by David Moss on only his second game back from injury sends the game to a 1-1 tie going into the second period.
 
The second period is just as offensive minded as the first and the shots are 27-25 already in favour of the Coyotes! The coyotes give up their second PP goal of the night and are able to get one of their own. unfortunately with only 4 seconds remaining in the period the flames are able to get the lead with a ES goal.
 
The third period is a little less of a shot fest and the teams finish with a 37-36 shot total. The Coyotes did take the shot advantage in this game but were unable to get past Karri Ramo and finish the game losing 3-2 and their first lost to the Flames so far this season. Coach Wells says after the game "We need to work on our discipline, we can't be giving up 20 minutes in penalties and expect to win any sort of games, that isn't how hockey works."

January 9, 2014
Tonight the Coyotes welcome the Minnesota Wild (24-18-3) to jobbing.com arena to try and get back into a winning fashion. The Coyotes offence has been playing better in the past few games and they just need to watch the penalties in this one.
 
The first period starts out the way the Wild would like it with a goal within the first 2 minutes of play. The Coyotes keep up the offence and dont take to many penalties but are unable to crack Josh Harding. The Wild are able to add one more on to take a 2-0 lead into the second period within the last 3 minutes of play.
 
The second period sees the Coyotes continue to put the offensive pressure on the Wild outshooting them 21-15 so far in the game. However the wild add one more goal and take the 3-0 lead into the third period. Josh Harding is a wall in the net that the Coyotes are just not able to get through.
 
The third period is more offence by the Coyotes and they finish the game outshooting the Wild 29-20 but fall to the 3-0. The Coyotes coach Dean Wells is dumbfounded saying after the game "Not much can be done when you are playing against a goalie who won't let anything in. You put almost 30 shots on net and you normally expect at least one to go in but Josh played a hell of a game and he deserves the W"

January 11, 2014
 
The Coyotes host the Ducks (20-23-3) for the 5th matchup of the season. The Ducks have a 3 point advantage over the Coyotes but the Coyotes do hold 3 games in hand against the Ducks. This will be a test for the Coyotes to see if they are able to come out and beat an opponent who they have been very good so far this season against (2-1-1).
 
Line Changes prior to the game:
 
D. Moss has taken the second line 5 on 4 and 5 on 3 PP over L. Korpikoski
 
The first period sees the Ducks lay waste to the Coyotes defence and they go up 5-1 on 12 shots. Smith took the quick exit and Backup Thomas Greiss came aboard!
The Second period sees a 1-1 to goals and the Ducks go into the third up 6-2. The Coyotes (who in the past few games have been doing great) are being outshot 29-18.
The Ducks add one more in the third and win this game in a landslide 7-2. outshooting the Coyotes 44-30. Coach Wells said after the game that this was a little hiccup in the plans of the Coyotes but they won't give up on the way they know they can play.2ir18wl.png
 
January 13, 2014
The Coyotes head out to Winnipeg tonight to take on the Jets (25-19-3). The Coyote are looking to jump back from what was a horrendous game against the Ducks.
What is a pretty defensive first period sees only a total of 11 shots being put on net and no goals. The Coyotes are playing a much better game then they did against the Ducks.
The Coyotes get on the board within the first 10 seconds of the second but give up a PP and ES goal to the Jets to go down 2-1 heading into the third. Unfortunately for the Coyotes they fell in the Defence aspect of the game giving up 13 shots and only getting 3 on net... Which is not good for the Coyotes.
The Coyotes are unable to pull the game to a tie and end this one in a 2-1 loss. getting outshot again 34-24. Coach Wells doesn't know what to do as he has exhausted his options for making his players play any better. It is rumoured that a huge lineup change is on the way!

January 14, 2014
The Coyotes lineups look a little different going into tonights back-to-back game against the St. Louis Blues (20-20-4).
14nhgdi.png
Even  after being outshot 13-6 the Coyotes finish the first period up 1-0 on a PP goal. The Coyotes new lines appear to be able to help keep the puck out of the net however they are still getting outshot like crazy.
The Second period sees the Blues continue to outshot the Coyotes and it has turned against them as the Coyotes go down 2-1 in the second period.
The Coyotes blow another game defensively and give up a crazy 43 shots! going down 5-3! Coach Wells says he doesn't know what more he can do then try and do a shakeup that may motivate his players to wanna play the game of hockey!

Today the Coyotes invite the Canucks (20-23-5) and are looking for their first ever win this season against Vancouver!
The first period ends with the Coyotes getting outshot 10-5 but able to keep the game 0-0. not much happened in the first at all and the Coyotes are hoping to get some points out of this game.
In the Second the Coyotes give up the first goal on the PP and are still outshot 24-14!
In the third the Canucks get on the board again on a PP goal but that is then sent to a 2-2 game by Riberio and Doan! This game is heading to OT and the Coyotes pick up at least 1 point.
less then 1 minute into the overtime period the new guy who was brought in Yakupov puts on in and the Coyotes get the W and 2 points!
2lto9zs.png
 
January 18, 2014
The Coyotes take on the Devils (19-21-1) and look to get a little win streak going on. This game is a good one as the Devils are also one of the bottom feeders in the league.
The first period is a good one for the Coyotes as they out shoot (9-7) the devils and control the pace of the game. Unfortunately neither teams are able to get one on the board.
The second period continues to show Coyote dominance as they continue to out shoot (21-11) but are still unable to get a goal past the Devils and the game is still 0-0
The third period still has the Coyotes taking it to the devils with a 31-15 outshooting performance but the Devils are held strong by their goaltender and the game goes into overtime tied at 0.
Again less then 1 minute into overtime young gun Yakupov puts on in and the Coyotes win their second straight OT win!f06m36.png
 
January 20, 2014
The Coyotes come into tonights game against the Maple Leafs (30-16-4) for their second game of the season. The Coyotes do get some help at Cody Franson was just recently injured.
The first period plays out evenly in the end and the Coyotes and Maple Leafs head into the second period tied up at 1-1 with both teams getting 8 shots on net.
In the second period of the game the Maple Leafs took control of the shots aspect of the game but it is the Coyotes that get on the board again and head into the third up 2-1!
in the third within 2 minutes of the middle of the period 3 goals are put into the net and the Coyotes and Maple Leafs both head into overtime tied up at 3-3. This is the third straight game that the Coyotes have taken to OT and are looking for their 3rd win!
the OT period does not solve anything but the Coyotes take the game in the Shootout by a 2-1 score! this is the third straight win for the Coyotes and their third straight OT win!

January 22, 2014
Tonight the Coyotes head to Calgary to take on the Flames (21-26-3) and get revenge for the 3-2 loss that the Flames handed to them earlier this month. The Coyotes are on a nice little three game winning streak and hope to turn that into four.
The first period doesn't start the way the Coyotes would like it as the Flames score within the first minute of the game. The Coyotes do regroup but aren't able to get anything else on the board and go into the second down 1-0.
The second period sees the Coyotes get 2 goals and take the lead from the Flames. The Coyotes are playing great hockey and are stoping the Flames from getting many shots (14).
The third period sees the Flames score and tie up the game at 2. The score doesn't change and the Coyotes go to overtime for the 4th straight game and look to capitalize once again!
Once again for the third time in the last four games young stud Yakupov scores within the first minute of overtime and the Coyotes win their 4th straight OT game and have turned on a night little streak as of late!

January 24, 2014
Tonight the Coyotes head up to Edmonton from Calgary to take on the Oilers (22-27-3). The Coyotes who have been on a nice 4 game winning streak which has put them into 9th place in the Western Conference and only 3 points out of the last playoff position.
The first period sees the Oilers take a 1-0 lead in what is a very even game, the Coyotes who were able to put a good offensive battle but unable to get a goal by good old Marty. of course as luck would have it the Coyotes were scored on by old sharp shooter Radim Vrbata!
The second period saw the Coyotes take it to the Oilers outshooting them 14-7 and getting on the board by a Boedker even strength goal.
The third period sees the Oilers and Coyotes take it to the opposing teams but neither are able to get one past the opposition on their 13 (ARZ)- 10 (EDM) shots. The Coyotes now head to their 5th straight OT!
Once again in the OT period young gun Nail Yakupov comes through and scores against his old team! The Coyotes now have won 5 straight games but in the process given up 5 points to their opponents.

January 26, 2014
Tonight the Coyotes continue their Western Canada swing as they head to Vancouver to take on the Canucks (22-23-7) who sit 1 point ahead of the Coyotes and with a win tonight the Coyotes could take themselves into the 8th seed position in the West! The Coyotes do have an advantage tonight as recently Roberto Loungo went down with Bicep Tendinitis after getting into a fight in a game against Nashville!
The first period starts out with some difficulty in net for both teams as both teams are able to get goals within 5 minutes and the Coyotes able to get a second at just 5:04 into the game! After a bad start to the game for both goalies the teams get it together and take it into the second period 2-1.
The second period sees the Coyotes and Canucks both get goals in the last 4 minutes of the period and the game heads into the third being 3-2! both teams are getting goals in a very efficient manner manner as Vancouver is outshooting the Coyotes 16-14 after 2.
The third period sees the Canucks tie the game around the mid mark and it looks as if the game will be going into another OT game for the Coyotes 6th straight game but Captain Shane Doan is able to net a PP goal at 18:40 which leads the Coyotes to their 6th straight win and puts them back into the playoff position.

January 28, 2014
Tonight the Coyotes are back at home taking on the LA Kings (31-22-1). The Coyotes enter this game without 3rd line LW Lauri Korpikoski who gets a lot of time on the PP for the Coyotes. The Coyotes also bring into this game a 6 game winning streak while the Kings come into tonights game very streaky winning and losing games in a sporadic manner.
The Coyotes and Kings enter the first firing hard and both teams getting a goal in the last 4 minutes of the game. The Coyotes are getting outshot hard in this game by the Kings ending the first period outshot 15-8.
The second period sees the Kings score two more times and continue to outshot and outscore the Coyotes 29-15. Going into the third period the Coyotes are looking to get more shots and play a harder defensive game.
The third period is not much better for the Coyotes who get scored on one more time with a PP goal by Carter and the Coyotes drop the game 4-1 to the Kings.

The Coyotes hold host to the Buffalo Sabres (23-26-4), something they will have to do without their number one goalie Mike Smith who is out for the next few days with a sprained ankle. Tonight we see Thomas Greiss in net for the Coyotes and looks to get a winning record for the season.
the first period sees the Coyotes and Sabres playing a good defensive game only allowing 7-4 shots on net.
The second period sees the Coyotes score twice and get the shots even again at 12-11. The Coyotes have picked up the game a little since the first and backup goalie Thomas Greiss looks to be holding down the net quite well.
The third period sees the Coyotes add one more PP goal and Thomas Greiss gets a SO on a third period push by the Sabres.
This win puts the Coyotes back at a "winning" record at 24-24-6

The Coyotes end January on a (7-3-0) record which has moved them into a tie with Colorado for 8th place in the Western Conference.

The coyotes first game of the new month sees them take on the Pittsburgh Penguins (28-21-5). This game was more or less a practice for the Coyotes as the penguins come into town and destroy them 8-2! The coyotes definitely are missing the likes of Goaltender Mike Smith and Korpikowski!

February 4, 2014
As luck would have it the Coyotes get back Mike Smith in time for the game against the Dallas Stars (23-28-4) as rookie backup Mark Visentin, who came up for Smith gets injured in practice. The Coyotes simply send him back down to portland to heal up and continue in the AHL for the remainder of the season. 
The Coyotes are looking to take it to the poor defensive team of the Stars and get back on track to getting into the top 8 spot in the Western Conference.
The first period is a decent evenly played game with the Stars and Coyotes getting near even in shots on goals however it is the Stars that get on the board first with a ES goal by Colton Sceviour. The Coyotes go and kill off 2 penalties this period while not getting a single PP chance at all.
The second period sees a breakdown of Mike Smith as he allows 3 goals on just 10 shots. The Coyotes do get one back on the PP by Mike Riberio as Mike Smith heads to the bench and Thomas Greiss comes in to finish up the game.
The third period sees two more Dallas goals and the Coyotes get their second massive kick in the butt game losing to the stars 6-1. The Coyotes did get a good amount of shots on the net but goalie Kari Lehtonen was the better player tonight.

February 7, 2014
Some surprising news out of Edmonton as the Oilers are able to do what the Coyotes could not and sign Radim Vrbata to a top heavy 6.9 Million/4 year deal that sees Vrbata paid 7.9, 7.5, 6.4, 5.9 Million respectfully. This deal will see Vrbata in a oilers jersey until he is 36 and most likely the end of his career. 
More importantly the Coyotes welcome the Chicago Blackhawks (36-18-5) to the Jobing.com arena and look to get a win out of them as they have dropped each of the previous two meetings this year.
The first period is a clean, fast game and sees the Coyotes get out to the 1-0 lead on a blistering 15 shots. The Blackhawks are just as strong on the offensive side being able to get off 10 shots of their own.
The Second period sees the second goal by a Coyote as Nail Yakupov is able to get the PP goal as the Coyotes convert on the only PP opportunity of the game so far. The Coyotes and Blackhawks still are even in shots as they have 25-22 respectfully and the third period will most likely be a duel to the end.
The 3rd period sees the Coyotes defence show up as Mike Smith and the Coyotes get the hard earned win against a huge Western Conference rival in a 2-0 game! The Coyotes also bring themselves within 1 point of the coveted 8th spot in the Western Conference.

February 8, 2014
The Coyotes head off to Dallas to revisit the Stars (25-28-4) who just recently smacked down the Coyotes in a 6-1 victory. The Coyotes will be starting the game with backup Thomas Greiss in net and hope to get revenge on the Stars for the previous game.
The first period sees the Coyotes take advantage of the PP netting 1 of the two possible opportunities. The Stars are able to tie it back up late in the period and the teams head into the break tied up at 1. Thomas Greiss has played a solid game so far to this point and Coach Wells seems pleased with his game so far.
The Second period sees the stars get down 2-1 early on Shane Doan second goal of the night but respond with 3 straight of their own. the Coyotes are able to get back into the game with a second PP goal of the night and go into the third only down by 1 with a chance to win the game.
The third period sees the Coyotes and Stars both pepper the goalies with shots but both are not able to go ahead and score as the game ends the same way the third started with the Stars getting the 4-3 win and the Coyotes handing them their second loss of the season series.

February 27, 2014
As the NHL takes a break for the Olympics the Coyotes and many teams use the down time to get a great break for their players! The Coyotes are back at it in Winnipeg to take on the Jets (32-23-5) and look to get even in the season series.
The first period sees the Coyotes get man handled in the Offensive zone and outshot 13-6 while the Jets get the first goal of the Game on the PP.
The second period sees the Coyotes catch up a little in the shots on goals but also spend another 4 minutes killing penalties but Mike Smith stands tall the the Coyotes keep the game at 1-0 and look to go into the third and get the game tied back up!
The third period sees Bryan Little get his second and third goal as the Coyotes go into Winnipeg and lose 3-1. the Coyotes were unable to convert on any of the 6 PP chances that they had in the game!

February 28, 2014
The trade deadline saw a lot of action but no major deals go down an tonight the Coyotes have different things on their minds as they take on the Colorado Avalanche (26-26-7) in the Mile High city!
The Coyotes come out firing away but it is Colorado who leaves the first period with the 1-0 lead.
The second period sees both teams goalies stand in their strong as neither is willing to budge at all!
The third period sees a few more goals go on the board as the Avalanche are able to get goal number 2 and 3 and look to be taking the 3-0 victory home but it is Kyle Chipchura who ruins the day with less then 30 seconds to go as the Coyotes lose to the Avalanche 3-1.

Alright guys so I thought I would take this time to sit down and talk about what I see Arizona being in the final months of this season. We have 22 games remaining and a serious shot at getting the #1 Draft pick this year as we sit only 5 points out of last place in the NHL. I know we are also only a few points out of 8th in the West (Seriously it makes absolutely no sense how we can be so close to both) but I think the best way to the Coyotes to improv is to do the following:
 
1) Rest Mike Smith - The man has almost 5 games on the next goalie behind him on GP and has been in net for all but 2 of our games! he needs a break! so we will be playing him sparingly. Thomas Greiss will start 3 games and then Mike will start 1. This will give Greiss 17 Games to finish off the Season and Mike only 5. I want to do this so that we can A) not have a serious injury to Mike and B) maybe raise our chances at the #1 pick.
 
2) Play our Young Stars more - Obviously the best way to improve our young guys is to give them time on the ice! That doesn't mean all my young guys are going to be first liners but I want to even out the playing time much more for the guys and give them experience on the Ice. I think this may also help my older players who at this time of the season are starting to fatigue.
 
3) Go defensive - I have decided that our offence just isn't good enough to go against others in the league and will be becoming a much more defensive club. I know this will lead to some more boring games but that is okay, I want my guys to gain valuable experience and the only way I see that happening is through teaching great defensive skills to lead to offence.
 
Please let me know if you will agree to stick around for the rest of the season as we go through a tough last 22 games but look forward to getting a great off season going!
 
Thank You,

 

GM Dean Wells

Tonight the new look Coyotes take on the St. Louis Blues (29-25-5) in Arizona. The Coyotes are looking to see what their young guns are made out of and start rookie goaltender Mark Visentin in net tonight.
The first period sees the Coyotes and Blues play a tight game together as both teams are pretty even in shots (9-11 favouring STL) but its Russian sensation Vladimir Tarasenko who nets one at 10:26 to give the Blues the 1-0 lead heading into the second period.
The second period sees the Blues start to pull away in the shot category as they outshot the Coyotes 13-8 but it is the Coyotes who net a PP goal by Lauri Korpikoski at 4:12 and the go ahead goal by Marin Hanzal at 6:34. Mark Visentin stands tall in net and the Coyotes head to the third period up by 1.
The third period sees Lauri Korpikoski get his second of the night at 13:58 as the get a little better defensively only getting outshot by one. The night belongs to Mike Visentin though who gets his first NHL win in the 3-1 Coyotes victory of the Blues.
Notes
- The Blues played backup goaltender Jaroslav Halak.
- The Coyotes 1/6 on the PP while the Blues go 0/3

The Canucks (26-29-8) are in town tonight to face the Coyotes tonight and both teams look to improve their standings as the Canucks are 2 points ahead of the Coyotes in the West but have 2 games in hand. This could be a big win for the Coyotes who send rookie tender Mark Visentin out again to face Roberto Loungo.
The first period sees Arizona take it to the Canucks and out shoot them 14-8 while staying out of the box! The young gun Martin Hanzal is able to get on the board very early in the game for the Coyotes scoring at 1:58 into the match and young goalie Mark Visentin is standing strong in net stopping all shots he faced. The Coyotes head into the break up 1-0.
The second period sees the Canucks come back out harder then the first getting 13 shots on the net but Visentin stands strong, helping kill off 3 Coyote penalties but letting one go in at 19:38 to Daniel Sedin. The Coyotes and Canucks head into the third tied up at 1, which has been much like the rest of the season series so far.
The third period sees the Coyotes get beaten down by the Canucks defence as they only get off a pitiful 6 shots. The Canucks are able to get one past young net minder Mark Visentin on the PP and Henrik Sedin gets a goal.
The Coyotes drop this hard fought game but their spirits are still in the season!
Notes
- The Coyotes PK unit was able to go 75% in this game and kill off almost 6 straight minutes of penalty time, while the Canucks killed their only penalty of the night.

The Coyotes get some bad news after practice on the 5th as LW Rob Klinkhammer goes out with a mild Shoulder Strain. The Coyotes are out of luck as they have to put Klinkhammer on the IR (losing him for an addition 9 days more then needed) but call up young RW Jordan Szwarz from Portland who is a fast moving puck moving forward.
Tonight the Coyotes face a different challenge as they play the Montreal Canadiens (37-22-5). Thomas Greiss will take the net tonight against star goaltender Carey Price (32-18)!
The first period sees a crazy turn of events as on a singly PP the Coyotes Shane Doan is able to score at 12:08 but only TWO SECONDS LATER Montreal's Brendan Gallagher gets a PP goal to tie it back up at 1-1. The score stays the same as the Coyotes and Canadiens head to the break.
The second period opens with the Canadiens on the PP and sees Gallagher net his second PP goal of the night. This is followed by a Jaromir Jagr goal at 6:38 to give the Canadiens a commanding 3-1 lead. It looks as if this is going to be the way the period ends but at 19:30 young stud Marin Hanzal gets the PP goal to get the Coyotes back into the game with 20 minutes of play left.
The third period sees Price and Greiss play amazing as neither team is able to get one past the opposing net minder and the game ends in a 3-2 victory for the Canadiens.
Notes
- The special teams was the big difference in this game as the Canadiens go 2/3 on their PP while the Coyotes were not able to get better then 1/4 on their chances.

Tonight the Coyotes head to Washington to take on the Capitals (25-32-7) who are in the same boat as the Coyotes when it comes to the bottom feeding teams in the league.
The first period sees the Coyotes get off to a quick start as they are able to get a goal by Antoine Vermette less then 4 minutes into the game. Around the 10 minute mark of the first the Coyotes add another one on in the form of a PP goal by defensemen Oliver Ekman Larsson. Just before the end of the first the Capitals are able to get a goal of their own as Troy Brouwer nets one at 18:32. The Coyotes take the lead into the intermission sharing the shot totals with the Capitals at 17 shots a piece!
The second period sees Troy Brouwer get his second of the night around the 15 minutes mark to tie up the game. The Coyotes won't have any of that and get the go ahead goal at the 17 minute mark by a Kyle Chipchura goal.
The third period sees Troy Brouwer complete his hat trick on a PP goal while Paul Bissonnette was in the box. The Coyotes are not able to respond and this game heads to OT.
OT solves nothing and the teams head to the shootout where first shooter for the Coyotes Shane Doan gets it past Holtby to take the 1-0 lead. The Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin is stopped by Thomas Greiss to keep it at 1-0. The Capitals stop the next one by Mike Ribeiro and get one past Greiss with the Jason Chimera shot. Antoine Vermette is not able to get one past the tender but the Capitals Martin Erat is and the Capitals take a 2-1 lead over the Coyotes. It is up to Keith Yandle to score to keep the shootout going but he is stopped by Holtby and the Capitals leave the game with two more points!

Tonight the Coyotes head to Tampa Bay to take on the Lightning (31-27-6) with Thomas Greiss in net as Mark Visentin will take tomorrows back-to-back against Florida.
The first period sees the Coyotes offence struggle and the Lightning get out to a 1-0 lead midway though the first. The Coyotes are not able to do much against the tight Tampa defence and they head to the break down 1-0.
The second period sees the Coyotes only get 3 shots on net but it doesn't matter as one of them goes in from the stick of Paul Bissonnette! The Coyote defence also steps up and they limit Tampa to only 6 shots that Thomas Greiss handles easily.
The third period sees the offence comes to life as the Lightning get it started with a Teddy Purcell PP goal around the 4 minute mark. The Coyotes won't go down without a fight and show it as they net a SH goal by Antoine Vermette only 3 minutes later. Both teams fight hard and it sees Marin Hanzal get the go ahead goal in with only 2:30 minutes remaining. But Tampa won't go away easily as they get a goal by sniper Steven Stamkos with less then a minute remaining to take the game to OT.
OT again solves nothing for the Coyotes and in the Shootout they best the Lightning to take the 2 points.

Tonights back-to-back sees the Coyotes head to take on the Florida Panthers (32-28-4). The Coyotes send out Mark Visentin to take net as he looks to improve his rookie year to 2-1-0.
The first period sees the Coyotes fatigue show as they allow 11 shots and Visentin allows 3 goals. The Coyotes are not able to get any real offence started and go to the break down 3-0.
The second period sees the Panthers take it out on the rookie net minder getting another 12 shots and getting another 3 past him! The Coyotes are gassed and cannot do much in the way of defence or offence and still have no goals to boast about.
The third sees some life from the Coyotes as they get 3 goals past Tim Thomas but the Panthers add 2 more and take the commanding 8-3 win against the Coyotes at home.

Tonight the Coyotes are headed to Boston to take on the Bruins (37-25-3). The Coyotes young goaltender Mark Visentin is starting tonight and the Coyotes are looking to see what the Bruins are like in this first match together this season.
The Coyotes get off to a terrible start giving you a goal 12 seconds into the game to Patrice Bergeron, but they are able to bounce back before the end of the period and head into the break down 2-1.
The second period sees the Coyotes get the game tied up for a few minutes but two Jarome Iginla goals takes the game to 4-2.
The third period sees the Bruins get another one past Visentin and the Bruins go on to win 5-2.

Today is a must lose game for the Coyotes as they take on the Flames (25-35-7) who are 4 points behind the Coyotes in the number one draft location.
The first period sees a Keith Yandle PP goal at only 1:50 seconds into the game. Coyotes tender Thomas Greiss has been having a good game stopping all of the 11 shots he faced in the first  period.
The second period again sees a quick Coyote goal as Mikkel Boedker gets one in at only 4 seconds into the period to take the 2-0 lead. However Joe Colborne ruins the Coyotes shutout at 18:14 when he gets on past the Greiss.
The third period sees the Flames come alive as they put 3 past Greiss and take the game 4-2.

Tonight the Coyotes take on the Kings (41-24-3) in a game most people are suspecting to be an easy win for the Kings. The Coyotes send tender Greiss back out instead of Visentin.
The first period sees the Coyotes not taking the game the way that many thought it would go as they get up on the kings 2-0 before 10 minutes into the first! Tender Greiss also stops all 11 shots he faced but the real surprise is the Coyotes 17 shots on net in the first!
The second period sees the offences come out as 6 goals where put in the net, evenly 3-3 for both teams. The Kings go into the third period trailing 5-3 and are fighting hard to get back into the game.
The third period sees a crazy turn of events as Tyler Toffoli scores at 0:00 (:P haha that is so funny) and the Kings tie the game up at 5 less then 5 minutes into the third. The teams end up going to Overtime tied up at 6.
OT sees Defensemen Drew Doughty score at the 1 minute mark as the Kings take this game from the Coyotes in OT.

Tonight the Coyotes are playing the decent Florida Panther (35-29-5) who last kicked the Coyotes 8-3 on March 11th. The Coyotes put back in young tender Visentin.
The first period is a defensive game as neither team is able to get a goal nor get over 10 shots on net.
The second period is much like the first with both teams playing a good defensive game with only 27 shots on net total between both teams.
The third period sees the Coyotes get the first goals as they get a goal within the first minute of play. The Coyotes then continue to go and get 2 more goals and end the game winning 3-0 against the Panthers.
Visentin gets his first NHL shutout in this game as the Coyotes get two more points in their totals.

Tonight the Coyotes take on the Bruins (42-25-3) for the second time and look to get a more even game then the last time they played the Bruins.

The second period sees the Bruins come back fighting hard as they net three goals on the Coyotes and take a 4-2 lead into the third.

Tonight the Coyotes are in New York to take on the Rangers (44-26-2) who they beat early in the year 3-2.
The first period sees a quick goal by Rick Nash less then two minutes into the game, after that the teams get into a defensive game as neither are able to get one past the other teams net minder and the game goes into the second period 1-0.
The second period sees the goals start coming as each team is able to get multiple goals past the tenders and the teams head into the third tied up at 3.
The third period sees the teams play a tough game and it is at 16:46 when Marc Staal takes an Unsportmanlike Conduct penalty that the Coyotes get the opportunity to get the game winning PP goal!

The back-to-back game comes for the Coyotes as they take on the Pittsburgh Penguins (35-30-6). The Coyotes got spanked by the Penguins earlier this year 8-2 on Feb. 1st!
The first period sees a quick PP for the Penguins who take advantage of it and get the first goal of the game less then 2 minutes into the game. After a quick start the Coyotes seem to get their legs under them and go out and get two goals of their own and take the 2-1 lead heading into the second period.
The second period sees the Penguins tie up the game around the ten minute mark but two quick goals by David Rundblad and Keith Yandle gives the Coyotes a 4-2 lead going into the third.
The third period sees both teams trade goals and the Coyotes take away another win the second in two nights in a score of 5-3.

The third period sees the Devils again tie the game at 6 and the Coyotes are not able to come back and take the game into OT tied up at 6.
The OT period solves nothing and the Coyotes and Devils go to a shootout which is won by a Patrik Elias goal!
