No Coyotes game until Friday against the Blackhawks, so not a lot of news for the Desert Dogs...not to worry, we've still got links for your hockey/sports fix.

First things first though: previously...on, I mean, yesterday's scores:  Ott 4 - Buf 2 (10 straight wins for the Sens!); StL 3 - Chi 2; Car 1 - Cal 4; Phi 0 - Edm 1; Det 1 - Ana 3

David Vest has a new blog entry up discussing Keith Yandle's Team USA chances and Kurt Sauer's ongoing injury issues.  I love Yandle, and think he has the potential to be a top offensive defensemen for many years, but considering that he wasn't part of the team's preliminary drug testing or preseason orientation, I'm not sure how much he is really on the radar.  Hopefully Sauer feels better soon!

The Hockey News: Top 10: Players traded for Olli Jokinen
Alright, I'm not gonna lie - articles like this about Olli Jokinen will never cease to make me smile.  Remember, we still get Calgary's #1 pick and have Lombardi in our lineup...amazing!

In the realm of other sports, two interesting entertaining links to peruse over your morning coffee:

This kid is awesome. Best McNabb interview ever? - Bleeding Green Nation
As my signature line implies, I'm a Philly fan as well as Coyotes fanatic and love a great Donovan McNabb interview.  This kid asks some good (read, entertaining) questions and McNabb brings the funny.  Apparently for this kid, McNabb is small potatoes, though, as he's also interviewed President Obama in the White House.

Alright back to work everyone...nothing more to see here....
