Normally, an off-the-glass play is usually reserved for the realm of basketball but on Thursday night, Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle used some glass to collect an easy goal. In the third period of the Coyotes game against the Minnesota Wild, Yandle cleared the puck off the boards and that's when the bizarre goal happened. The puck bounced off the boards and deflected into the Minnesota net past goaltender Niklas Backstrom:

Keith Yandle scores bizarre off-the-glass goal

I have literally never seen anything like this in all my years of watching hockey.  Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle dumped the puck in off the top of the glass and it bounced off the stanchion, skipped on the ice and then beat Minnesota Wild goalie Nick Backstrom shortside beneath his knee.  No one will ever be able to duplicate something like this ever again. Minnesota...

Same lapses have Coyotes in last, in trouble

GLENDALE, Ariz. Dont look now, but the Coyotes are in last place in the same Pacific Division they won just 11 months ago. The situation isnt dire yet, but the signs sure are. Twenty games into the season, Phoenix is committing the same mental errors it did in the first week of the season. Twenty games into the season, there is still no sign of that water-tight defense that defined...

Sullivan ends goal drought at perfect time

GLENDALE, Ariz. Steve Sullivan has murdered a dozen innocent sticks over the past six weeks choked the life out of every feeble blade. But as his goal-less drought reached 14 games in reality -- and eternity in his mind -- all the experiences of a 38-year-old NHL veteran were of no use. "You don't think you have as much time as you do, you're trying to rush pucks...

Coyotes recall Chris Brown and Rob Klinkhammer

The Phoenix Coyotes on Friday recalled forwards Chris Brown and Rob Klinkhammer from their AHL affiliate in Portland, Maine. The 22-year-old Brown has 18 goals and 11 assists in 51 games for Portland this season. Brown was a second-round draft pick of the Coyotes in 2009. He didn't sign with Phoenix until last year after he finished his college career at Michigan, where he...

Cards' Flagstaff camp would be sorely missed

Glendale's Mayor Jerry Weiers was supposed to highlight the citys economic plan and the future of the Phoenix Coyotes at Thursdays State of the City event. Instead, Cardinals team president Michael Bidwill stole the show when he announced the team is close to an agreement to move training camp to Glendale. Cardinals training camp has been held in Flagstaff every year since...

(AP) -- Steve Sullivan scored the tying goal with 6:28 remaining in regulation and then netted the lone goal in the shootout to lift the Phoenix Coyotes past the Anaheim Ducks 5-4 on Saturday night. Lauri Korpikoski scored twice, Matthew Lombardi added a goal, and Mike Smith stopped 31 shots through overtime and then all three shootout attempts for the Coyotes, who...

Michael Rupp rocks Paul Bissonnette's world

The big news from Michael Rupp vs Paul Bissonnette: BizNasty left last night’s brawl with a stream of blood over his left eye after getting rocked by Rupp. You had to figure, after BizNasty went on a three-game scoring streak, he’d be a little rusty in the fighting department. After his suddenly hot play, the Coyotes actually gave Biz 12 shifts last night against Minnesota....

Coyotes Clobber Ducks in Shootout

One game down, two to go.   Clearly the Ducks will need to do better than their first effort that ended up in a 5-4 loss in shootout to the Phoenix Coyotes. You would think a hat trick from Andrew Cogliano would have propelled the team forward to another win, but no such luck.  Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith had a lot to do with the Phoenix win, as well.  Smith stopped 31...

Ducks-Coyotes Preview

Thanks to a unique twist in the lockout-shortened schedule, the Anaheim Ducks will be seeing a lot of the Phoenix Coyotes over the next few days. With the way Anaheim has been playing lately, the opponent hasn't seemed to matter anyway. The Ducks - off to the best start in team history - seek their 13th win in 15 games on Saturday night when they begin a stretch of three games...
