Found May 23, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:
I’m saying this a lot later than I expected when the playoffs began, the Phoenix Coyotes are officially eliminated from the post-season. I’m pretty disappointed with how it all ended. They essentially gave the Kings the driver’s seat with the eggs they laid in Game’s One and Two, only after that did they begin to show signs of who they are and the structure that binds them. What has been s...

Brown's hit sparks controversy

The Kings punched their ticket to the Stanley Cup Finals with a thrilling OT win, but much discussion will revolve around Dustin Brown's questionable hit on the Coyotes' Michal Rozsival.

Can Mike Smith be fined for his post game comments?

After listening to Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith's post game comments the first thing that came to mind was, the NHL could levy a fine against Smith for his post game comments about the officials.  I will be the first one to admit that the NHL on ice officiating has been really poor during this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs, but everyone has has had to play...

Can the Coyotes build on their success?

Heartbroken, hurting, and frankly pissed off.If you look at the faces of this Phoenix Coyotes team, they were clearly upset by last night's outcome.

Long-awaited success whets appetite for more

Another year of off-ice question marks were answered by another year of on-ice solutions. For the third straight season, the Phoenix Coyotes dealt with the adversity of ownership instability. But for the third straight season, they responded with the strength of on-ice stability. Leadership still matters. For years, a decade and a half plus, we have wondered out loud what it...

Coyotes disappointed for different reasons after elimination

The Coyotes were livid at the end of Game 5 -- about what they saw as a brutal hit by Kings captain Dustin Brown that sent defenseman Michal Rozsival out of the game with a knee injury, and about the goal by Dustin Penner seconds later that ended their season. "It's very disappointing," Coyotes captain Shane Doan said. "I've been knocked out in the first...

Phoenix Coyotes let frustration damper the end to an outstanding season.

The Phoenix Coyotes were eliminated last night in game five of the Western Conference Finals by the Los Angeles Kings, bringing their season to a close. In a year where they won the first Pacific Division title in team history and made it to the conference finals for the first time in team history, negativity should not be the focus here. Unfortunately, the press during this round...

the day wonderland ceased to be: farewell to the 2011-2012 coyotes

Isn't all of this Internet chirping getting out of hand? I mean. That's an erroneous statement. People have been dicks about being fans of something since fandom came to be and since people started using words, so it's been probably millions of years since this whole chirping thing has been ~out of hand. We'll say it right now and we don't care who reads it...

NHL needs to adjust its rule book for goaltenders without equipment

[youtube]rB-0NsGrrIM[/youtube] Game 5 between the Phoenix Coyotes and the Los Angeles Kings was exciting and controversial.
