After Sunday night's loss to St. Louis, the Phoenix Coyotes find themselves in the position of being scoreboard watchers the next three days. They don't play again until they face the San Jose Sharks at home on Thursday. Though they currently sit in 7th place in the West they could find themselves in 10th place by the time Thursday rolls around.
In today's Tracks we've got the usual Coyotes post game linkage, as well as an assortment of other links including Sunday NHL recaps, the Pirates losing a close one, and an interesting thesis in today's Final Howl.
