Dave Tippett shortly after murdering several players. He was the only Coyote to execute all game.
What do you even say after that game? The Coyotes seemed like they would play a decent game even after going down 1 after the first but then absolutely lost their collective minds. Sure, 26 other teams would be grateful to be playing in this game(h/t @felixpotvin), but holy cow make something of it guys. Everything went down hill after that with Shane Doan, Antoinne Vermette, and Martin Hanzal all getting Game Misconducts, Hanzal looking at a possible suspension and possibly Doan too with how random the justice system in this league is.
/Travis was just fined for his comments about the suspension system and has been sacked.
Sure, the Kings played a good game too with Jeff Carter getting a hat trick and Quick was good in the limited times he was tested, but this was a lot of the Coyotes losing it. And the refs too. Man were they calling a crap game. The Coyotes were doing enough on their own, but really? No icing on the 2nd goal, the Doan penalty, you just couldn't get anything right!
/The writer who had taken over for Travis has also been fined and sacked.
Before we lose any more writers here's a video or two and a selection of user submitted Hiaku.

But that wasn't really a Haiku, so I had to fix it.
