Phoenix Coyotes: Holes to be filled in free agency

When a team misses the playoffs, like the Phoenix Coyotes did in 2013-14, it takes a pretty good offseason to right the ship.

Sore Vrbata comes up big in Coyotes' big win

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Radim Vrbata had just taken the ninth day of a 10-day penicillin regimen when the allergic reaction began.

Vrbata's OT goals leads Coyotes over Stars

GLENDALE, Ariz. Radim Vrbata doesn't do insignificant goals any more. "Just the big ones," Coyotes captain Shane Doan said.
