The Phoenix Coyotes played a penalty and injury filled contest against the Florida Panthers in Sunrise, Florida on Tuesday evening. The Desert Dogs eeked out a 2-1 win in a unique way. They scored both of their goals on the power play. Ray Whitney and Radim Vrbata both had a hand in both markers. Vrbata now has 16 goals on the season and Whitney's goal to open the scoring was number 100 of his career. The Yotes are back at it again tonight at 5 p.m. in Raleigh.
