Coyote Tracks - Whiteout Wednesday April 14 Edition


Ok, the whiteout is upon us Coyotes fans.  Travis will have the preview and gameday thread up later in the day, and I hope to see a lot of you tonight at the game.  Be loud, be proud.

The big news from last night is that the Glendale City Council has approved the lease with Jerry Reinsdorf's group to purchase the Coyotes:

Glendale goes with Reinsdorf, kills Ice Edge lease for Phoenix Coyotes - Phoenix Business Journal:

A lot of us here at Five For Howling were excited about the Ice Edge group and their attitude about hockey in the valley.  I don't know enough about the Reinsdorf proposal and what happened last night to fully comment on it, so I'll let Travis take care of that later today.  It's good news that a new owner looks poised to take the reins.  The Coyotes should be looking to stay in the valley for many years to come...

After the jump, some more playoff previews, the Coyotes beard-a-thon gets more press...

One of the finer -- and least hygienic -- traditions in the game of puck...find me at the Coyotes site and give me your support.  I'll post a picture of my 5 day old playoff beard later in the day, hopefully.

Ok, it's very late, I'm tired after the Vampire Weekend concert and need to get some sleep.  If there's important stuff going on, post it in the comments.  Hope to see everyone at the Whiteout tonight.
