Some BGM for your tracks reading today. The Coyotes and the Predators played a game more indicative of their typical style of play last night, with one minor exception, the first ten minutes of the game where defensive breakdowns and one bad break. After that Mike Smith was lights out, unfortunately so was Pekka Rinne. In Coyotes news today we have a little more on the Ownership situation and Raffi Torres' suspension appeal.
