Coyotes Tracks - November 11, 2011 - Veterans Day Edition

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

On this Veterans Day we would like to send a message of thanks out to all though who have served in the Armed Forces.  For those who don't know the history of this day we, as one would expect in a Tracks post, have a link for you.  Also, please check out the link in The Final Howl section on hockey legend and veteran Hobey Baker.

The Phoenix Coyotes gained a point in the standings on Military Heroes Appreciation Night, but lost a very winnable game against hockey's most storied franchise on Thursday.  The Coyotes face a tougher test than the Habs as they travel to the Shark Tank on Saturday to face division foe San Jose.  Their last trip to NoCal, on the opening day of their season, was less than pleasant.
