Yeah it's Phoenix Coyotes at the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight which means that there are a lot more articles about the COyotes out there than usual. Frankly most of them are fairly nice even if a certain someone had to go write yet another article about our attendance. Anyhow. Lots of activity today. Preview will be up midday, Gamethread at 5:00 for the game at 5:30. Expect lots of Leaf fans visiting from Pension Plan Puppets, but if you feel anyone's being troll like remember those flag buttons and we'll get them dealt with as fast as possible.
