9 in a row!  Franchise record!  WTF?!?!  What more can you ask for?  Seriously, Coyotes fans...what more can you possibly ask for?

Actually, there is one thing I could ask for.  Win some games in regulation, or at the least in the OT period.  Don't get me wrong - I want the Coyotes winning lots of games however they manage it.  And the shootout is there to be taken advantage of and I am happy they are finally good at the shootout.  However, the Coyotes need to remember that in the postseason (where we are headed in 24 short days!!!), there is no shootout, no matter how long the Coyotes keep the game tied.  I have no doubt that the Coyotes will be able to win these close games during the postseason, but I'd like to see them take that mindset right now.  Push it as hard as you can during the OT boys...I'm happy however we win these games, especially if we can takeover first in the Pacific, but let's get adjusted to winning during sudden death.

Anyways, that is a very, very small nitpick.  Go Coyotes!!!

Phoenix Coyotes' Ilya Bryzgalov not surprised by rallies
Says team ''has a really good backbone,'' helping it avoid long losing streaks.  This is what Tippett has done for these guys, really.  Last year, we folded like a house of cards...can't complain about this improvment in attitude and it will serve us wonderfully come the postseason...

Is Ice Edge Holdings Like a Bad Boyfriend? | - All Sports. All Phoenix.
In light of the recent news stories surrounding the Ice Edge Group purchasing the Phoenix Coyotes, I have to wonder if this transaction is like a bad boyfriend...enjoy, folks...
