Saturday's Coyotes Tracks - Raffi Torres Returns

Christian Petersen

February 2, a date many fans have been looking forward to since the start of the shortened season. What's the special occasion? The return of Raffi Torres. Torres will jump on the wagon after his 15 goal season last year, six of them being in the 3rd period and more than half of them being game winners. Raffi's hard style play will be needed when the Coyotes face off again against Dallas Stars today. Puck drop is 6pm.
