Video: What's the key to Dave Tippett and the Phoenix Coyotes' success in February and can they maintain it moving forward? Paola Boivin discusses.

Coyotes win over Canucks has playoff feel

GLENDALE, Ariz. Even in a leap year, February is the shortest month. That's a shame for the Phoenix Coyotes because they absolutely owned these 29 days. Mikkel Boedker's warp-speed, shootout goal lifted Phoenix to a playoff-feel, 2-1 win over the Western Conference-leading Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday at Arena, helping the Coyotes finish off an 11-0-1 month in...

Coyotes can't carry February magic into March

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- We're not in February any more, Toto. The Coyotes are suddenly mortal. You knew this loss was coming. Phoenix had overcome great deficits, great goaltending, great teams and just about every other obstacle you could throw its way during February's remarkable 11-0-1 streak. On Thursday, the Coyotes couldn't overcome an abysmal first period in a 4...

A Roaming We Will Go: Mike Smith

Mike Smith has lead the Coyotes to 11-0-1 for the month of February and first place in the pacific division. But what do we really know about #41 for the Coyotes? At 29, Smith signed as a free agent with the Coyotes in the summer of 2011. It was expected he would be started by most fans while LaBarbera did what he’s best at... backup. Smith came from a deep playoff run with the...

Another Option For A Relocating NHL Team

from Bob McKenzie of TSN, Obviously, if the NHL is faced with relocating another franchise—those options may have to be legitimately explored in the coming weeks or months with regards to the long-term future of the Phoenix Coyotes—the most logical landing-spot candidates are Seattle, Quebec City, Kansas City and perhaps Las Vegas. But interested parties in Saskatoon have contacted...

Coyotes' mistakes lead to Flames' goals in loss

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Olli Jokinen capped Calgary's three-goal outburst in the first period and the Flames defeated the Phoenix Coyotes 4-2 Thursday night. The loss was the first for Phoenix at home since falling to Anaheim in late January, and ended a Coyotes run of 11-0-1 in the last 12 games. Phoenix goalie Mike Smith had only one loss in his last 12 games before he was...

Phoenix’s February

The Phoenix Coyotes are the hottest team in the NHL.  They have gathered points in every game in the month of February.  They have posted an 11-1 record and their loss was a regulation tie, as they lost in a shootout to Vancouver.  This month moved the Coyotes into first place in the Pacific Division.  Although the Coyotes are playing well, their record is partly due to the...

Coyotes move into Pacific Division lead

The Phoenix Coyotes head into March with the Pacific Division lead, thanks to another fantastic February.

Blue Jackets-Coyotes Preview

The Phoenix Coyotes won nearly every game in February, including some recent comebacks from poor first periods. That formula dried up in their first game in March. The Coyotes look to bounce back from their first regulation defeat in more than a month when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night. Phoenix (33-22-9) went 11-0-1 in February to seize the Pacific Division...

Top Shelf: Tippett's Coyotes exceeding expectations once again

Unless it's a story about the franchise's potential move to another city, the Phoenix Coyotes have a hard time cracking the headlines in the world of professional hockey.

Flames-Coyotes Preview

The Phoenix Coyotes' late-season surge may come as little surprise given their runs the past two years, though their current stretch has been just as impressive. Recent meetings with the Calgary Flames have gone their way as well. Streaking Phoenix looks to earn its seventh consecutive win both overall and against fading Calgary on Thursday night at Arena. The Coyotes...

Hitchcock Discusses His Coaching Style

from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun, It’s the ’99 Dallas Stars all over again, only they’ve moved to Missouri. Hitch in St. Louis, Darryl Sutter in L.A., throw in Phoenix’s Dave Tippett for good measure ... they’re dragging hockey back to the dead-puck era. Suffocating defence, unadventurous offence, happy to win 1-0. Only one problem, Hitchcock said Thursday. It’s just...

Flying V’s Hat Trick: Canucks end road trip with shootout loss to Coyotes

“De-Schneid in the desert” Cory Schneider and the Vancouver Canucks failed to hold on to the late lead and a third period rebound as the goaltender let the puck loose for Ray Whitney to tie the game in the third, allowing the Phoenix Coyotes to win 2-1 in a shootout on Tuesday. The Canucks and Coyotes traded chances in a low-scoring hockey game, featuring a forty save performance...

Phoenix Coyotes improvement, standing takes center stage

Notes: Now that the team is playing very well, Tippett said getting better and staying on top of the Pacific Division has taken center stage.

Phoenix Coyotes Mike Smith, Vancouver Canucks Cory Schneider follow similar paths

A year ago, a goalie matchup between Mike Smith and Cory Schneider would have been a rare occurrence in the NHL.
