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...

Draft will impact Coyotes down road; trades could impact them now

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Pack your Pepto and practice deep breathing. This is how the final 14 games of the Phoenix Coyotes season look: an imperfect team struggling to overcome its demons and deficiencies to squeeze into the playoffs.
