Coyotes Tracks - October 20, 2012 - Pirates Win!

Nothing really new to report today, aside from the NHL's expected cancellation of more of the regular season schedule. The Coyotes' AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates, notched their first win of the season at home, in which OEL scored a pair. Today's other links include yet another potential CBA fix, an attempt to put a price on Roberto Luongo, and some creative advertising down in the ECHL.
