Yesterday the Phoenix Coyotes recalled Oliver-Ekman Larsson from San Antonio. This makes it likely that Thursday night two defensemen are going to be sitting in the press box. The competition on the blueline just ratcheted up. Speaking of ratcheting things up, yesterday we debuted two new features here at Five For Howling. The first is a weekly update on the Pacific Division. The second is the Five For Howling Roundtable. If you haven't checked them out already please click the links and let us know what you think.
