PLAYERS: Mike Smith
TEAMS: Phoenix Coyotes
On Saturday, Oct. 19, Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith became only the 11th goaltender in NHL history to score a goal courtesy of notching an empty-netter against the Detroit Red Wings. The Red Wings, down by two goals with time running out, had its goalie pulled, and with 5 seconds remaining, Smith took aim and […]The post Coyotes goalie Mike Smith’s empty-net goal re-created bobbleheads (video) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.

Mike Smith's goal, re-enacted with bobbleheads

Mike Smith is one of 11 goalies in NHL history to score a goal, but he's almost certainly the only one of those to have his historic achievement re-enacted in bobblehead form. Smith, the Phoenix Coyotes' veteran netminder, shot a puck the length of the ice into an empty net in the final second of a 5-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Oct. 19 -- the puck crossed the line...

Coyotes celebrate goalie Mike Smith's goal with bobbleheads

Mike Smith is the 11th goaltender in NHL history to score a goal and the Coyotes are excited about that. They're also excited about Mike Smith Bobblehead Night on Saturday, November 9th. But how to effectively combine both events into one glorious video that everyone will remember/will be talking about? Stop motion bobblehead animation! Inventive? Yes. Adorable? Of course...

Wisdom and wood produce synergy for Coyotes' Morris

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Fictional baseball legend Roy Hobbs had the Wonderboy bat. Derek Morris has the Synergy blade. Its resurrection could fast become the stuff of legend. As the story goes, Morris was looking over some of his old statistics this offseason with his boys, Traiten, Presley and Asher, when they asked why he no longer puts up big numbers. Morris was stumped and a little...

Smith, Coyotes beat Kings 3-1 to avenge ugly loss

Mike Smith stopped 41 shots, Kyle Chipchura had a goal and an assist, and the Phoenix Coyotes rebounded from a lopsided loss to Los Angeles by beating the Kings 3-1 Tuesday night. Smith had a miserable game in California last Thursday, when he was pulled after allowing four goals on 15 shots in the first period of the Kings' 7-4 win. The Coyotes were sharp early defensively...

Message delivered, shorthanded Coyotes down Kings

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- This cycle of events will play out several more times this season. The Coyotes will get a little lax with their structure and defensive game, coach Dave Tippett will growl loudly and the pack will close ranks again. That's what happened in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings at Arena, but the circumstances made it a little more satisfying...

Coyotes OEL and Yandle lead the league in defencemen points

The Phoenix Coyotes are bouncing back nicely from last season’s rare playoff miss, and leading the way is the elite defencemen duo of Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Keith Yandle. With 11 points, the two Desert Dogs are tied for first in…Read more →The post Coyotes OEL and Yandle lead the league in defencemen points appeared first on The Hockey Daily.

October indicates bounce back year for the Phoenix Coyotes

After qualifying for the Stanley Cup playoffs in three straight seasons the Phoenix Coyotes hit a bump in the road last year, failing to finish top 8 in the West.

WATCH: L.A. Kings star Drew Doughty takes an embarrassing dive

Hockey players are known as some of the toughest athletes in all of sports. They've earned this reputation by playing through serious injuries and only leaving the ice when absolutely necessary. Drew Doughty is evidently trying to tarnish that reputation as evidenced by his hilariously awkward dive against the Phoenix Coyotes.  Let's recap. Doughty has a minor collision...

Adam French: Andy Miele Shines in 3-1 Win

The Phoenix Coyotes won their second engagement with the Los Angeles Kings tying the season series after an embarrassing 7-4 romp that saw two teams known for tight checking games and effective defending go berserk with scoring. The win keeps the Coyotes in the early hunt for the playoffs with 18 points in their first 13 games. The West has been very interesting to start and the...

Coyotes dig out of 3-0 hole, beat Predators in shootout

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Mikkel Boedker scored the lone shootout goal in the fifth round to lift the Phoenix Coyotes to a 5-4 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night. Thomas Greiss made 36 saves and stopped all five shootout attempts for the Coyotes, who rallied from a 3-0 deficit. Jordan Szwarz scored his first NHL goal and Derek Morris and Shane Doan also scored for...

Adam French: The Best Offense is a Good Offensive Defense?

The Coyotes rallied back from a disastrous 3-0 first period to win 5-4 in the shootout. It was a pretty ugly game and while I love the somewhat surprising scoring that this team has brought, they’ve been allowing a ton of goals. The absence of Martin Hanzal was felt the two games he was suspended, despite both being victories. Vermette was forced to take pretty much every face...

Predators-Coyotes Preview

Because of their scoring depth, the Phoenix Coyotes managed to keep their home win streak going despite the absence of one of their top playmakers. With Martin Hanzal finishing up his suspension, the Coyotes hope for similar contributions while earning a fifth straight win in the desert Thursday night against the Nashville Predators. Hanzal was docked two games by the NHL for charging...

Nashville Predators vs Phoenix Coyotes Preview (Game 13)

The Nashville Predators (6-5-1) faceoff against the Phoenix Coyotes (8-3-2) Thursday night in their first of three meetings this season. This is the start of a seven game road trip for the Predators, which will be without Pekka Rinne. Phoenix is looking to continue their hot streak. Through 13 games they are 4th in the NHL in total scoring with 3.31 goals per game.  The Predators...
