Game Day: New York Rangers @ Phoenix Coyotes

 

After a disappointing 4-1 showing against Anaheim, the Phoenix Coyotes rebounded nicely against the Edmonton Oilers, winning that game by a score of 4-2 after having fired 42 shots at Devan Dubnyk, ending a three-game skid in the process.  Tonight, a rare visitor enters Jobing.com Arena as the New York Rangers and the Coyotes face off exactly a year and a day since the Rangers rallied to take the December 16th, 2010 meeting in a shootout, 4-3.

The Rangers are coming off a 4-1 loss against St. Louis but are 6-3-1 in their last ten games. After this game, they move on to New Jersey, then play host to the Islanders and Flyers before heading to Washington and Flor...

Last night the Phoenix Coyotes almost let one slip away, going up 3-0 on the Chicago Blackhawks before being forced into a shootout situation that saw Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Radim Vrbata and Mike Smith step up and seal the deal for a 4-3 win.

This is the third game in four nights for the Coyotes, and they have a date with the Detroit Red Wings to look forward to on Thursday.  The Predators have had a to...

Game Day: Phoenix Coyotes @ Dallas Stars

The Phoenix Coyotes' 6-3 opening night loss at the HP Pavilion on Saturday night, complete with several inopportune penalties and a frightening number of defensive breakdowns, will surely be something they'll want to bounce back from this afternoon as the puck drops at 5 p.m. Dallas time.  Shane Doan, celebrating his 35th birthday today, scored two power play goals and led his team with 6 of 29 shots on goal.  On the other end of the ice, new Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith saw a whopping 52 shots fired in his direction.  The Coyotes haven't allowed that many since early 1997.

Phoenix has won their last two contests in Dallas ...
