Coyote Tracks - TGIF April 9 Edition

New, comments

Well, that was more of the same from the Coyotes, huh?  Spot the other team a 2 goal lead, thrilling third period comeback, Adrian Aucoin game winner in the shootout after Radim Vrbata kept it alive on the final shot for the original shooters.  Ho-hum, Coyotes get their 50th win of the season and get up to 106 points.  LA moves into a tie with Detroit and Nashville for the 5th spotwith 98 points.  Big race to the finish coming up.

And the big news during the game courtesy of @TheVoiceDS was that Ice Edge and Glendale have reached an agreement to put to a public vote...and everything is happening next Tuesday, April 13 at 7:00.

Suns, Coyotes, D-backs mark similar attendance - Phoenix Business Journal:
All three Phoenix teams had very similar attendance numbers on Wednesday night...for the Suns and Coyotes this meant sell-outs; for the D-backs, 36% full.  Granted, all the fans were at the Suns and Coyotes games...yeah, that's it...

Grow a playoff beard to celebrate the Coyotes playoff run...and raise money for charity.  I'm in for it, I think.  I grew a playoff beard for the 2008 Phillies, and that worked out pretty well...

'Coyotes Playoff Classics' debuts this afternoon to get fans ready for the WhiteOut
Replay of first-ever Coyotes WhiteOut game against Anaheim in 1997 airs prior to Coyotes-Kings telecast from Los Angeles.  I know a lot of folks were watching this before the Kings game last night...FSAZ is really getting us ready for the playoffs...good times.

Home Ice Clinched! But that power play…. – Coyotes 5 – Predators 2 | Fanster.com - All Sports. All Phoenix.
The recap is a bit outdated, but the Power Play woes continued last night...it really has looked decent at time (throughout the Nashville game they were getting tons of chances), but they need to put some of those chances in the net.

Darryl Sutter: Best and worst moves as Calgary Flame general manager
I can't really call this whimsy, but I'm sure everyone reading here will get a laugh about the Olli Jokinen trades (albeit there is that whole Daymond Langkow issue...).

One more regular season game to go.  Whiteout next week!!!
