GLENDALE, Ariz. If you were expecting a Coyotes post mortem following Thursday's 2-1 loss to Vancouver at Jobing.com Arena, we'll give you the bullet points.
Phoenix called a players-only meeting after the game to address some long-standing issues.
"The thing that guys love playing here for is that we count on you. It's not like you're on this team and you're not a big part of it. Every single guy's a huge part of this team," captain Shane Doan. "It's a great feeling when you're winning. But we're all responsible when we lose. You can't hide from it, you can't duck into a corner -- every single guy has to be better."
If Mike Smith is seriously injured after Alexander Edler ran him behind the Phoenix net, it may not matter because it's become crystal clear throughout the course of this season that the Coyotes do not have faith in backup Jason LaBarbera.
