Coyote Tracks - Monday April 5 Edition

Opening Day...it's Opening Day.  Go Phillies!!!!

Wait, what...this is Five for Howling and you want to talk hockey....but it's opening day!  Oh, alright, fine....but go check out your favorite team's baseball blog here at SB Nation (such as The Good Phight)...good times, I promise. (Travis' Note: OR you know AZ Snake Pit)

First, the Coyotes tailgate on Saturday was a blast.  Thanks to everyone who showed up, ate food, drank a little and played street hockey.  It's probably getting a bit too hot to keep playing street hockey mid-day in Phoenix, but you never know.  Maybe we can get in one more pre-game game if the Coyotes get a Saturday home playoff game (crossing fingers)...

Otherwise, not too much going on with the Coyotes after Saturday night's sell out crowd shootout win.  The biggest news from yesterday was Dan Carcillo and the Flyers beating the Red Wings to help Nashville hold on to the 4th seed for the time being.  Now, to be clear, I'm not scared of the Red Wings - they are a great team, have playoff experience, yadda yadda yadda...I think the Coyotes can beat them.  I just don't want to have to deal with Red Wings fans during our first white out in 8 years.  No offense to the fine folks of Nashville, but they just don't travel to Phoenix as well.

Anyways, since it was a very quiet weekend around the site.  Here's some recaps about the game against Edmonton:  [AZCentral's Gintonio] [@YotesGurl's take]

LAST NIGHT'S NHL SCORES: DET 3 - PHL 4; CGY1 - MIN 4; SJ 4 - COL 5 (OT); MIN 3 - VAN 4 (OT)

There is Not a Coyotes Conspiracy
Let’s start giving the Coyotes credit for the season they’ve had in the face of adversity.

Ice Edge says Coyotes bid still strong
The Ice Edge Holdings pitch to buy the Phoenix Coyotes is strongly thought to be leaking, but that's not what chief operating officer Daryl Jones told Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday.

CANOE -- SLAM! Sports - Columnists - Wiebe: Other NHL options for Winnipeg
Why the Coyotes staying in Phoenix may be the best thing for Winnipeg to get a team again.  It's an interesting argument, and I'm sure if expansion comes to the NHL, Winnipeg will be a goal.  I'm not sure the folks over at On the Forecheck want to hear their suggestion.

As for your whimsy....not so much whimsy, just a cool story and a very lucky fan...
