GLENDALE, Ariz. How much did Mondays 3-2 loss to the Red Wings impact the Coyotes season? Heres what general manager Don Maloney said before the game when asked if the Coyotes planned to be buyers or sellers at the April 3 trade deadline.
Were right at the cliff as far as Im concerned, Maloney said. If we slide much further, all bets are off. Were going to go out and find assets. This is reality.
When the Coyotes next take the ice at Jobing.com Arena on April 2, the roster could look very different, because they just slid a little further in the Western Conference race. Phoenix is four points behind eighth-place San Jose and ninth-place Nashville. The Sharks play 11 of their final 17 games at home, where they are 8-1-4. The Predators plays nine of their final 15 games at home, where they are 9-2-4. In contrast, the Coyotes play 10 of their final 16 games on the road, where they are 3-8-3.
Maloney said there has been constant dialogue with other teams about trades, but he wasnt a...

Looks like optional #Coyotes skate this morning.

They have have reached the point where they're either going to save their playoff hopes or bolster somebody else’s...
When the Coyotes take the ice Monday night against the suddenly surging Red Wings, theyll find themselves three points behind the Stars for the final Western Conference playoff spot. Its hardly an insurmountable gap, and there are still 17 games left to play.
But while much talk this season has focused on the tightness of the Western Conference race, that once-elusive separation...

As the Minnesota Wild continue their surge toward the postseason, the Phoenix Coyotes must find a way to prevent their playoff chances from slipping further away.
The Wild can extend their season-high winning streak to seven games by handing the visiting Coyotes a seventh straight defeat Wednesday night.
Zach Parise had two goals and an assist...
In the first period of the Detroit Red Wings' 3-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes, things did not look good. The Wings had blown Ian White's 1-0 goal thanks to a tip-in from Martin Hanzal and a roof-job from Rob Klinkhammer, and Jonas Gustavsson was the only player holding a disinterested, slow-witted and downright lazy Wings team in the game.
Gustavsson ended up stopping...
This is the most redolent example of a trap game I've ever seen.
Coming off an emotional two game sweep of this once invincible and once Mighty Ducks, in front of 7 thousand of their own fans and 11 thousand of ours.
Phoenix hasn't won in five games. Shane Doan has been playing for free the entire year, waiting for a Saudi pharmacist to buy the team. HockeyinHD says...
