After Ray Whitney decided to take his talents to Dallas this past off-season, the Coyotes were left with a big hole in their offense. Whitney had a team high 77 points (24G-53A) last season, so without his production players like Radim Vrbata and Shane Doan were expected to carry the offensive load. To say that the Coyotes have struggled to score as of late is an understatement. They have not won in their last 4 games (0-3-1) while being shut out in 3 of those 4 games and outscored 11-2 altogether. In fact, the Coyotes went a franchise record 245:30...

It’s an early game in Detroit today. Luckily NASCAR finished on time, so there were no TV conflicts in my house. None of the duct taped cars won, so I was pretty disappointed.

I want to see this coin. Is it a loonie? A twoonie? A quarter? Does it have pictures of Cory and Bobby Lu on either side? Where does AV keep this coin? Is it always in his pocket? Does he lock it away somewhere with his crystal ball, voodoo dolls and a pack of vodka-infused chewing gun? If the media doesn’t insist on filming a coin toss before the end of the season, they’re not doing their job.
I think we are finally starting to see signs of life from our Vancouver Canucks.
They played this week with some consistency, a lot of physicality, and while they still can’t put the puck in the net as much as they’d like, it’s helped them to a 2-0-1 record.
Are you ready for this? I hope so, because it’s Canucks v. Blackhawks baby!
After a three-game jaunt through California, the Canucks are back home against the Colorado Avalanche. Lizz Moffat recaps the game in your tweets.
And already in 4 of their first 6 games, the Canucks couldn’t hang on to leads like Dustin Diamond couldn’t hang on to his dignity.
And already things are looking pretty good. At least compared to last night.
Well, five minutes have passed and the #Canucks haven’t dug themselves a 2-0 hole yet.
Clowe heads back to the box for high-sticking. He has a full out tantrum about it, earning him another, like, a zillion penalties. He’s done for the night.
