Sunday's Coyotes Tracks - Season Opens With a Loss in Dallas

The Phoenix Coyotes dropped their first game of the season as Jaromir Jagr dominated the game and it was a busy day around the league as play got kick-started. No rest for the weary as the Coyotes get right back on the ice tonight for their home opener, banner-raising night against the Chicago Blackhawks. Hopefully the Hawks aren't quite as motivated to beat the banner-raising Coyotes as they were to thrash the Kings.
