What do you even say after that game? The Coyotes seemed like they would play a decent game even after going down 1 after the first but then absolutely lost their collective minds. Sure, 26 other teams would be grateful to be playing in this game(h/t @felixpotvin), but holy cow make something of it guys. Everything went down hill after that with Shane Doan, Antoinne Vermette, and Martin Hanzal all getting Game Misconducts, Hanzal looking at a possible suspension and possibly Doan too with how random the justice system in this league is.

/Travis was just fined for his comments about the suspension system and has been sacked.

Sure, the Kings played a good game too with Jeff Carter getting a hat trick and Quick was good in the limited times he was tested, but this was a lot of the Coyotes losing it. And the refs too. Man were they calling a crap game. The Coyotes were doing enough on their own, but really? No icing on the 2nd goal, the Doan penalty, you just couldn't get anything right!

/The writer who had taken over for Travis has also been fined and sacked.

Before we lose any more writers here's a video or two and a selection of user submitted Hiaku.

But that wasn't really a Haiku, so I had to fix it.
