Comments from Coyotes locker room after 4-0 loss to Kings

Prior to Monday’s game, Phoenix coach Dave Tippett and captain Shane Doan talked about the importance of staying out of the penalty box against the Kings. However, they were whistled for seven penalties in the game and two power play goals by the Kings had them down 2-0 and they never fully recovered – as Jonathan […]

Shane Doan breaks down a double dose of the LA Kings

On the flip side, Phoenix Coyotes […]

Fight Club: three Kings vs three Coyotes

Usually when two division rivals meet up there’s a good chance for some fireworks. Over the course of their six-game series during the regular season last year, it’s fair to say the LA Kings and Phoenix Coyotes didn’t disappoint.
Each team won half the games – with three shutouts and the other three all decided by one goal.

Brown Bettman Stanley Cup by Ikiri

What hook might the NHL use to try and lure fans back to the game should the lockout end in the coming week?

As we discussed on last weekend’s […]
