Major Changes In Store For Arizona Coyotes

On June 27th the Coyotes officially  dropped the original Phoenix name and donned the title of Arizona to better represent the entire state as a whole.  But a simple  name change isn’t the only new thing surrounding the desert dogs this upcoming off-season. The Coyotes began their new era,  deciding to buy out the contract of  Mike Ribeiro and cutting ties with the veteran...

The most memorable moments in Phoenix Coyotes history

When the Phoenix Coyotes become the Arizona Coyotes on Friday at the NHL Draft, the switch won't really be made to entice folks from around the state to join the fan base.  The Coyotes would love to have more people at Arena as they look to build on last season's league-high attendance increase, but residents of Tucson, Flagstaff and Yuma won't be lining up...

Looking back, looking forward

The Coyotes did not have the best season this year. I am kind of glad it’s over; it was becoming painful to watch. Besides, had we made the playoffs and went up against the Ducks I feel that series would be over so fast. We now have the time to devote to figuring out what went wrong and making the necessary changes to be better next year. I am not going to go into free agents and...

Coyotes' late-season road schedule is cruel, unusual punishment

NEW YORK -- Cruelty wasn't intended, but logic didn't play a large enough role when the Coyotes schedule was announced this summer.  Somehow, the NHL saw fit to make the Coyotes play eight of their 16 Eastern Conference road games (half) in the final five-plus weeks (37 days) of the season, parsed out over three trips. Following a four-game trip to Washington, Tampa, Florida...

James Tanner: Doan Gets 350th Career Goal as Coyotes Move Into Tie for 8th

The Coyotes defeated the Flames 3-2 last night and by scoring the winner, Shane Doan also collected his 350th career goal. The goal puts Doan (who is also the franchise leader in games played by a margin of over 200) only 29 goals behind all-time franchise leader Dale Howerchuck. The game began with the Coyotes flying. They outshot the Flames 11-8 in the first and really carried the play,...

Coyotes hit ground running with 'tough' practice

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Coyotes resumed practice on Wednesday, after a 10-day layoff. The goal for coach Dave Tippett was simple. "The plan today was to make them very tired and it didn't take a lot to do that," Tippett said. "It's a very unique situation where even when they come to training camp in the fall they've been skating right up to a day or two...

Inconsistency still the Coyotes' calling card

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- What would you do over the Olympic break if you were Coyotes general manager Don Maloney? Would you make a few deals to push this team into playoff position or would you light a match? Right now, it's a toss-up. The Coyotes can tantalize with potential one night, then crush you with inconsistency the next. There was nothing left for coach Dave Tippett or captain...

RECAP: Game 55. Pens lose 3-1 to Coyotes

  Let’s take two things into account.    1. It’s a January West Coast trip. 2. Shane Doan called out his team prior to this game.   It’s a recipe for a loss, really. The Penguins didn't even play all that horribly. Despite getting outshot, they had plenty of chances to get back into the game, but Mike Smith wouldn't let them...

Frustrations mounting for Phoenix Coyotes

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By JOHN MARSHALL AP Sports Writer The Phoenix Coyotes' latest loss left captain Shane Doan red-faced with anger.

Buffalo, yes Buffalo sweeps Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Coyotes are still under the impression that they can take a team lightly. They are still under the impression that they can give less than a high-energy, tight-checking, blue-collar effort and emerge victorious. You would think 54 games would have been enough to teach them otherwise, but Thursday's 3-2 loss to league doormat Buffalo would suggest the Coyotes...
