Coyotes' struggles in front of Smith continue in loss to Avs

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- It wouldn't be fair to characterize the Coyotes' poor play in front of goalie Mike Smith as the elephant in the room. Everyone has acknowledged the elephant. The problem is that nobody has figured out how to remove that four-ton weight. Smith looked like he might sail to his fifth win of the season when the Coyotes built a three-goal, first-period lead against...

Solid effort goes unrewarded in Coyotes' loss to Caps

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Coyotes coach Dave Tippett opted to go back to goalie Mike Smith on Tuesday against the Washington Capitals, rather than ride Devan Dubynk's hot hand.

They blocked 17 shots -- five by defenseman Chris Summers and four by defenseman Michael...

Discussing shot quality and the Arizona Coyotes

The Arizona Coyotes and head coach Dave Tippett have the reputation of being a defense first team. A key for any defensive scheme is to limit the amount of quality scoring chances the opponent gets and rely on your goaltender to stop the “routine” shots. In this article we will look mostly at the Arizona Coyotes. A great deal of work has been done by various members of the media...

As goes Mike Smith, so go the Arizona Coyotes

The Arizona Coyotes are not a very good hockey team. This is an obvious statement that requires no advanced statistics or anything of the like. They’re decent on paper and the product on the ice has been quite poor. If the current trend that has been witnessed in the first near-quarter of the season is any indication, they could spend the year battling the Edmonton Oilers for...

Arizona Coyotes up for sale…again

Just when it seemed like the Arizona Coyotes were out of the woods when it came to their ownership situation, they find themselves right back in the thick of it. The nightmare was apparently over last August, when the NHL approved the sale of the franchise to Ice Arizona. There’d be no more court cases, a stable ownership situation and a new age in Arizona hockey. Or so we thought...
