Saturday's Coyotes Tracks - No New News On Lockout

Not a whole lot going on this weekend in the hockey world. On the plus side, both the Pirates and Gladiators managed to get wins yesterday, though the Arizona Sundogs got blown out at home. We've also got more on the threat of decertification, a college team turning heads by forcing ties, and a book review courtesy of our own Carl Putnam.
