Yesterday, the Phoenix Coyotes were again the talk of the NHL. This time it actually involved the roster, not ownership. The Desert Dogs traded Ilya Bryzgalov's negotiating right for a draft pick and future considerations. Yes, Matt Clackson too, but that was an accounting move. The search for Bryz's replacement likely began well before yesterday. Hang on Yotes fans. The next month should be a bit of a roller coaster ride.
Tonight Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final will be played in Boston. The game starts at 5 pm.m MST and can be viewed on Versus.
