Coyotes vs Predators: That Old Wacky Coach

August 2, 2020 - 12:16 PM ET

It's been almost five months , but hockey is back. The Coyotes finished their season in a depressing downward spiral that all but guaranteed that their hot start was for naught and that they would miss the playoffs, yet again. Meanwhile, since most of the NHL doesn't pay attention to the Coy...

Coyotes Win, but There Are Problems

August 3, 2020 - 1:53 PM ET

The Coyotes and Predators played their first game yesterday and the results were good if you're a Coyotes fan. The 'Yotes took an early lead off one of the most bizarre goals you'll ever see - a point shot hit a skate, bounced in the air off the shoulder of a player in the faceoff circle, went s...

Got the Day Off? Watch Some Hockey! Coyotes vs Predators

August 4, 2020 - 11:27 AM ET

The Coyotes take on the Predators looking to put a stranglehold on the series today. The game, unfortunately is at 2:30 my time, which means if you're a Coyotes fan, it's going to start at 11:30. As much as five games per day is cool on the weekends, the mid-day game is pretty crappy if you h...

Daytime Games Have Consequences + What Are You Doing Big T?

August 5, 2020 - 11:42 AM ET

The Arizona Coyotes and the Nashville Predators played an afternoon game yesterday and the Coyotes lost 4-2. If you've ever talked to a someone who spends too much time on the internet and too little time outside, you know that years of using their phone to curate their entire media content into...

Coyotes Advance

August 7, 2020 - 11:29 AM ET

The Coyotes just won in overtime. Amazing. First time in the real playoffs since Melrose Place was Good-bye pants! God bless you, Darcy Kuemper. More to come, but phone writing hard. ‐-‐----- The Coyotes took an improbable 2-1 series lead the other day in a game in w...

The NHL's Craziest Day

August 8, 2020 - 12:53 PM ET

That was the single craziest day in NHL history. Six Straight Elimination games. Five eliminations, and the best team still standing. What a day! The Coyotes beat the Predators in a very improbable fashion. Like usual, the Predators were the better team by far, but like usual, Darcy...

Coyotes vs Predators Series Stats

August 10, 2020 - 12:15 PM ET

Damn, what a weird weekend. On one hand, my Coyotes completely goalie the Preds to snatch a somewhat (possibly very) undeserved victory from the jaws of defeat, and then on the other, my hometown Leafs do the exact opposite and leave the bubble to meet up with Nashville. Goalies, they w...

Coyotes to Just Want to Fly: Face Avs on Wednesday

90 Seconds In Heaven: Av's Prevail As Coyotes Try to Revive Dead Puck Era

August 13, 2020 - 12:16 PM ET

If you've ever had the experience of going to a rural public school that has almost no money and thus sends you on the same damn field trip every year, then you've got the experience with boredom necessary to enjoy the Coyotes style of hockey. Choke the rush. Clog the middle. Pretend you didn't...

Has Anyone Ever Won the Conn Smythe in Round One?

August 16, 2020 - 1:07 PM ET

In a game that could rival Felix Hernandez's perfect game, or Mike Tyson's eight-second knockout, Darcy Kuemper, aka the Cat Burgler of the Bubble, was on fire. In a performance so raw, Bun B called to congratulate him, Darcy Kuemper was unbelievable. You think Jonas Korpisalo is having a goo...

Coyotes Hoping Kuemper Show Renewed for Another Season

August 17, 2020 - 1:32 PM ET

The Critics are saying Kuemper the best show since the Wire or at least Rosanne.

The Coyotes Show Up, and That's About All They Do

August 18, 2020 - 11:54 AM ET

The Coyotes just got beat worse than a QAnon believer in an intellectual debate with a five year old. I haven't seen someone fold that fast under pressure since Jack Bauer began an interrogation of a suspect by shooting him in the kneecap. The opening period saw the Coyotes put up a 23% pu...

Coyotes Eliminated Following Severe Beating

August 20, 2020 - 12:24 PM ET

The Coyotes have been eliminated from the NHL's Playoffs after a severe beating. 14 goals over two games. It's a beating so sever that any jokes I made about it would be censored immediately, apparently. Who knew Mike Milbury was off limits? God bless his horrendous outdated takes, the g...

Time for a New Coach to Go Along with the New G.M

The NHL Cannot Remain Apolitical and Must Show Leadership

August 27, 2020 - 1:42 PM ET

I have been repeatedly and expressly told to not talk about politics in this space. The people running this site would prefer to avoid these issues because they are divisive, and because they feel that sports should be a refuge from the day-to-day grind of living in a world where you can't hold...

NHL At Least Tries to do the Right Thing

August 28, 2020 - 10:08 AM ET

The NHL cancelled it's games yesterday to protest the ongoing police brutality and overall racism of policing in North America. Though, unlike the NBA no official NHL message contained the important words Black Lives Matter. The NHL and its fans will hopefully take the postponement of playoff g...
