‘Nothing imminent’: Major deal unlikely for Coyotes’ playoff push

The Coyotes have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of their Olympians so they can reassemble their team, but with the trade deadline only a week away, it’s possible this current version isn’t the one that ultimately vies for a playoff spot. But considering the marketplace has been chilled by a limited number of sellers, the Coyotes aren’t expecting wholesale changes. “We’re...

Korpikoski emblematic of Finns' Olympic excellence

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- If you had laid odds before the Olympics on which of the five Coyotes would make the greatest impact in Sochi, Russia, the only player who would have sported worse odds than Lauri Korpikoski was goalie Mike Smith, who didn't play a minute for Team Canada. But that's not how things worked out.   Czech center Martin Hanzal missed some time and played sparingly...

Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson enters Olympic limelight

Merchandise bearing Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson’s initials has slowly worked its way around the team’s locker room, but not even a hat or a T-shirt has landed in winger Lauri Korpikoski’s possession. “No, he hasn’t given me anything yet,” Korpikoski said. “He doesn’t want to give me anything. I don’t know if they’re going to expand to Finland, but...

Jets’ Zach Bogosian Smacks Head on Boards After Whiffing on Check (GIF)

Phoenix Coyotes forward Lauri Korpikoski pulled the ol’ Charlie Brown on Zach Bogosian on Monday. As the Winnipeg Jets defenseman barreled in to deliver to deliver a check a few feet from the side boards, Korpikoski released the puck and calmly sidestepped. Bogosian, who had already committed to the hit, was unable to pull up and instead careened head-first into the boards in...

Ducks Sweep Series with Coyotes

Coyotes defeated the Flames 6-0

The 42nd game of the season isn't typically thought of as a "must-win." You wouldn't know it by the way the Phoenix Coyotes or their back-up goaltender played on Tuesday night. The Coyotes finally broke out of their New Year slumber, capturing their first win of 2014, a 6-0 victory over the Calgary Flames Tuesday night. "It was a big game for us -- a must...

Greiss leads Coyotes to shutout win over punchless Flames

Sluggish in the first period, Phoenix scored its first two goals on fortunate bounces in the second. Once the Coyotes got rolling, there was no stopping them, particularly the way Thomas Greiss was turning away shots. Greiss stopped 27 shots, Lauri Korpikoski had a goal and two assists, and the Coyotes rolled to a 6-0 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. ''...

Boedker, Korpikoski key Coyotes' offensive onslaught

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Mikkel Boedker's mission this season was to shed past baggage. Lauri Korpikoski's was to prove he could be more than a third-line, defensive wing. Both Coyotes recently took strides in the right direction. Boedker had a goal and an assist and Korpikoski scored and had two assists as the Coyotes opened the floodgates in a 6-0 win over the Calgary Flames...

Where are they now? Rangers edition

I was casually watching (a DVR of) some Saturday afternoon hockey between the Senators and the Coyotes when something struck me as strange; no, it wasn’t that all of the Sens goals came from not-your-average offensive player, it was that Lauri Korpikoski (or as I fondly call him, the Korpedo) got an assist. “Wow,” I thought aloud to myself, as I often do in my apartment, ...

Coyotes try to end weary Canadiens' series domination

Mired in something of a mini-slump, the Montreal Canadiens could use a game against a franchise they have thoroughly dominated for more than 20 years. The weary Canadiens, losers of three of four, will look to extend their winning streak against Phoenix to nine games when they host the Coyotes on Tuesday night. Montreal has lost twice in 18 matchups with the Coyotes since they relocated...

Message delivered, shorthanded Coyotes down Kings

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- This cycle of events will play out several more times this season. The Coyotes will get a little lax with their structure and defensive game, coach Dave Tippett will growl loudly and the pack will close ranks again.

"It was a morgue around here -- nobody was happy, everybody was miserable," said Rob Klinkhammer. The mood on the team has certainly changed in the course of three games over five days.
