Coyotes Tracks - October 9, 2011 - Shots, Shots, and More Shots

This photo sums up last night's game.

The Phoenix Coyotes lost their season opener last night lost to the San Jose Sharks by a score of 6-3.  Shots were the theme of the evening.  The Coyotes gave up 52 of them and the team's fans likely drank about the same number so they could forget about having witnessed the ugly affair.  The Desert Dogs now head to Dallas where they will take on the Stars in a Columbus Day afternoon affair on Monday.
