The first game of the year sees the Arizona Coyotes taking on the Columbus Blue Jackets (22-15-3).


The Coyotes are once again out shot and outplayed in the 60 minute contest giving up over 35 shots and barely getting past 25 for themselves. Coach Wells says that there is going to be a change in the way the team plays and the output should change quickly!

January 4, 2014
The second game of the new year sees the Flyers (23-15-3) head into Arizona. The Coyotes coach Dean Wells said before the game that the team is looking to get more shots on net and pay better attention to the defensive end as well. He wants his guys to be out there playing their hearts out and if they aren't going to do that they better be ready to be hitting the bench or a new roster!

The First period is not what Coach Wells wanted as his Coyotes were only able to get a potful 2 shots on goal in the entire period. Mike Smith plays great in goal for the Coyotes and not only stops all 10 shots he faced but also helps the Coyotes kill off both the PK they faced so far.

The second period finally sees the Coyotes get some shots on goal with the total jumping up to 11 (which still is not good enough for Coach Wells) the Coyotes have also been fighting up tons of penalties as they have been in the box a total of 13 minutes in the 40 minute game. The Period did see the Coyotes score on a goal from Yakupov assisted by Ribeiro and Michalek! Mike Smith continues to blank the flyers and has faced a reasonable 18 shots.

The Coyotes defence and offence show up in the third period as they hold the flyers to 6 shots and get 13 of their own to even the shot totals at 24. As well the Coyotes PK played amazing killing off 7 of the 8 PK opportunities. The Third period saw 3 goals, 2 from the Coyotes and 1 from the Flyers as the Coyotes come away with a win and a game that Coach Wells describes as "somewhat acceptable"



January 7, 2014
Tonights home game brings the Calgary Flames (15-24-3) into town. The Coyotes who are coming off of a win against the Flyers are looking to win the third straight game against the Flames so far this season and get closer to the 8th playoff position.

The first period shows that each teams shooters are in the building as a whopping 14 shots are send on net. The Coyotes have been in some trouble as Klinkhammer is given a game misconduct and the Coyotes spend 14 minutes on the PK to start the game. After a quick PP goal by the Flames put them up 1-0 within the first few minutes of the game a SH goal by David Moss on only his second game back from injury sends the game to a 1-1 tie going into the second period.

The second period is just as offensive minded as the first and the shots are 27-25 already in favour of the Coyotes! The coyotes give up their second PP goal of the night and are able to get one of their own. unfortunately with only 4 seconds remaining in the period the flames are able to get the lead with a ES goal.

The third period is a little less of a shot fest and the teams finish with a 37-36 shot total. The Coyotes did take the shot advantage in this game but were unable to get past Karri Ramo and finish the game losing 3-2 and their first lost to the Flames so far this season. Coach Wells says after the game "We need to work on our discipline, we can't be giving up 20 minutes in penalties and expect to win any sort of games, that isn't how hockey works."


January 9, 2014
Tonight the Coyotes welcome the Minnesota Wild (24-18-3) to jobbing.com arena to try and get back into a winning fashion. The Coyotes offence has been playing better in the past few games and they just need to watch the penalties in this one.

The first period starts out the way the Wild would like it with a goal within the first 2 minutes of play. The Coyotes keep up the offence and dont take to many penalties but are unable to crack Josh Harding. The Wild are able to add one more on to take a 2-0 lead into the second period within the last 3 minutes of play.

The second period sees the Coyotes continue to put the offensive pressure on the Wild outshooting them 21-15 so far in the game. However the wild add one more goal and take the 3-0 lead into the third period. Josh Harding is a wall in the net that the Coyotes are just not able to get through.

The third period is more offence by the Coyotes and they finish the game outshooting the Wild 29-20 but fall to the 3-0. The Coyotes coach Dean Wells is dumbfounded saying after the game "Not much can be done when you are playing against a goalie who won't let anything in. You put almost 30 shots on net and you normally expect at least one to go in but Josh played a hell of a game and he deserves the W"

Glad to see you got the shot totals up, holding the Wild (or any NHL caliber team) to 20 shots is a pretty good team effort in and by itself.

Think so? check my thread - I just got upended by that same pesky team. while I at least got a goal, I gave up 28 shots - so a loss is a loss and that hands over as they say in poker...

The Coyotes host the Ducks (20-23-3) for the 5th matchup of the season. The Ducks have a 3 point advantage over the Coyotes but the Coyotes do hold 3 games in hand against the Ducks. This will be a test for the Coyotes to see if they are able to come out and beat an opponent who they have been very good so far this season against (2-1-1).

Line Changes prior to the game:

D. Moss has taken the second line 5 on 4 and 5 on 3 PP over L. Korpikoski

The first period sees the Ducks lay waste to the Coyotes defence and they go up 5-1 on 12 shots. Smith took the quick exit and Backup Thomas Greiss came aboard!
The Second period sees a 1-1 to goals and the Ducks go into the third up 6-2. The Coyotes (who in the past few games have been doing great) are being outshot 29-18.
The Ducks add one more in the third and win this game in a landslide 7-2. outshooting the Coyotes 44-30. Coach Wells said after the game that this was a little hiccup in the plans of the Coyotes but they won't give up on the way they know they can play.

January 13, 2014
The Coyotes head out to Winnipeg tonight to take on the Jets (25-19-3). The Coyote are looking to jump back from what was a horrendous game against the Ducks.
What is a pretty defensive first period sees only a total of 11 shots being put on net and no goals. The Coyotes are playing a much better game then they did against the Ducks.
The Coyotes get on the board within the first 10 seconds of the second but give up a PP and ES goal to the Jets to go down 2-1 heading into the third. Unfortunately for the Coyotes they fell in the Defence aspect of the game giving up 13 shots and only getting 3 on net... Which is not good for the Coyotes.
The Coyotes are unable to pull the game to a tie and end this one in a 2-1 loss. getting outshot again 34-24. Coach Wells doesn't know what to do as he has exhausted his options for making his players play any better. It is rumoured that a huge lineup change is on the way!


January 14, 2014
The Coyotes lineups look a little different going into tonights back-to-back game against the St. Louis Blues (20-20-4).

Even after being outshot 13-6 the Coyotes finish the first period up 1-0 on a PP goal. The Coyotes new lines appear to be able to help keep the puck out of the net however they are still getting outshot like crazy.
The Second period sees the Blues continue to outshot the Coyotes and it has turned against them as the Coyotes go down 2-1 in the second period.
The Coyotes blow another game defensively and give up a crazy 43 shots! going down 5-3! Coach Wells says he doesn't know what more he can do then try and do a shakeup that may motivate his players to wanna play the game of hockey!

Today the Coyotes invite the Canucks (20-23-5) and are looking for their first ever win this season against Vancouver!
The first period ends with the Coyotes getting outshot 10-5 but able to keep the game 0-0. not much happened in the first at all and the Coyotes are hoping to get some points out of this game.
In the Second the Coyotes give up the first goal on the PP and are still outshot 24-14!
In the third the Canucks get on the board again on a PP goal but that is then sent to a 2-2 game by Riberio and Doan! This game is heading to OT and the Coyotes pick up at least 1 point.
less then 1 minute into the overtime period the new guy who was brought in Yakupov puts on in and the Coyotes get the W and 2 points!


January 18, 2014
The Coyotes take on the Devils (19-21-1) and look to get a little win streak going on. This game is a good one as the Devils are also one of the bottom feeders in the league.
The first period is a good one for the Coyotes as they out shoot (9-7) the devils and control the pace of the game. Unfortunately neither teams are able to get one on the board.
The second period continues to show Coyote dominance as they continue to out shoot (21-11) but are still unable to get a goal past the Devils and the game is still 0-0
The third period still has the Coyotes taking it to the devils with a 31-15 outshooting performance but the Devils are held strong by their goaltender and the game goes into overtime tied at 0.
Again less then 1 minute into overtime young gun Yakupov puts on in and the Coyotes win their second straight OT win!

January 20, 2014
The Coyotes come into tonights game against the Maple Leafs (30-16-4) for their second game of the season. The Coyotes do get some help at Cody Franson was just recently injured.
The first period plays out evenly in the end and the Coyotes and Maple Leafs head into the second period tied up at 1-1 with both teams getting 8 shots on net.
In the second period of the game the Maple Leafs took control of the shots aspect of the game but it is the Coyotes that get on the board again and head into the third up 2-1!
in the third within 2 minutes of the middle of the period 3 goals are put into the net and the Coyotes and Maple Leafs both head into overtime tied up at 3-3. This is the third straight game that the Coyotes have taken to OT and are looking for their 3rd win!
the OT period does not solve anything but the Coyotes take the game in the Shootout by a 2-1 score! this is the third straight win for the Coyotes and their third straight OT win!



January 22, 2014
Tonight the Coyotes head to Calgary to take on the Flames (21-26-3) and get revenge for the 3-2 loss that the Flames handed to them earlier this month. The Coyotes are on a nice little three game winning streak and hope to turn that into four.
The first period doesn't start the way the Coyotes would like it as the Flames score within the first minute of the game. The Coyotes do regroup but aren't able to get anything else on the board and go into the second down 1-0.
The second period sees the Coyotes get 2 goals and take the lead from the Flames. The Coyotes are playing great hockey and are stoping the Flames from getting many shots (14).
The third period sees the Flames score and tie up the game at 2. The score doesn't change and the Coyotes go to overtime for the 4th straight game and look to capitalize once again!
Once again for the third time in the last four games young stud Yakupov scores within the first minute of overtime and the Coyotes win their 4th straight OT game and have turned on a night little streak as of late!

and a total of 9 goals in those 7 games. Yakupov was definitely worth the trade for Vrbata and a second rounder, although who knows my second rounder may turn out to be a decent player.

Tonight the Coyotes head up to Edmonton from Calgary to take on the Oilers (22-27-3). The Coyotes who have been on a nice 4 game winning streak which has put them into 9th place in the Western Conference and only 3 points out of the last playoff position.
The first period sees the Oilers take a 1-0 lead in what is a very even game, the Coyotes who were able to put a good offensive battle but unable to get a goal by good old Marty. of course as luck would have it the Coyotes were scored on by old sharp shooter Radim Vrbata!
The second period saw the Coyotes take it to the Oilers outshooting them 14-7 and getting on the board by a Boedker even strength goal.
The third period sees the Oilers and Coyotes take it to the opposing teams but neither are able to get one past the opposition on their 13 (ARZ)- 10 (EDM) shots. The Coyotes now head to their 5th straight OT!
Once again in the OT period young gun Nail Yakupov comes through and scores against his old team! The Coyotes now have won 5 straight games but in the process given up 5 points to their opponents.


January 26, 2014
Tonight the Coyotes continue their Western Canada swing as they head to Vancouver to take on the Canucks (22-23-7) who sit 1 point ahead of the Coyotes and with a win tonight the Coyotes could take themselves into the 8th seed position in the West! The Coyotes do have an advantage tonight as recently Roberto Loungo went down with Bicep Tendinitis after getting into a fight in a game against Nashville!
The first period starts out with some difficulty in net for both teams as both teams are able to get goals within 5 minutes and the Coyotes able to get a second at just 5:04 into the game! After a bad start to the game for both goalies the teams get it together and take it into the second period 2-1.
The second period sees the Coyotes and Canucks both get goals in the last 4 minutes of the period and the game heads into the third being 3-2! both teams are getting goals in a very efficient manner manner as Vancouver is outshooting the Coyotes 16-14 after 2.
The third period sees the Canucks tie the game around the mid mark and it looks as if the game will be going into another OT game for the Coyotes 6th straight game but Captain Shane Doan is able to net a PP goal at 18:40 which leads the Coyotes to their 6th straight win and puts them back into the playoff position.


January 28, 2014
Tonight the Coyotes are back at home taking on the LA Kings (31-22-1). The Coyotes enter this game without 3rd line LW Lauri Korpikoski who gets a lot of time on the PP for the Coyotes. The Coyotes also bring into this game a 6 game winning streak while the Kings come into tonights game very streaky winning and losing games in a sporadic manner.
The Coyotes and Kings enter the first firing hard and both teams getting a goal in the last 4 minutes of the game. The Coyotes are getting outshot hard in this game by the Kings ending the first period outshot 15-8.
The second period sees the Kings score two more times and continue to outshot and outscore the Coyotes 29-15. Going into the third period the Coyotes are looking to get more shots and play a harder defensive game.
The third period is not much better for the Coyotes who get scored on one more time with a PP goal by Carter and the Coyotes drop the game 4-1 to the Kings.


January 30, 2014
The Coyotes hold host to the Buffalo Sabres (23-26-4), something they will have to do without their number one goalie Mike Smith who is out for the next few days with a sprained ankle. Tonight we see Thomas Greiss in net for the Coyotes and looks to get a winning record for the season.
the first period sees the Coyotes and Sabres playing a good defensive game only allowing 7-4 shots on net.
The second period sees the Coyotes score twice and get the shots even again at 12-11. The Coyotes have picked up the game a little since the first and backup goalie Thomas Greiss looks to be holding down the net quite well.
The third period sees the Coyotes add one more PP goal and Thomas Greiss gets a SO on a third period push by the Sabres.
This win puts the Coyotes back at a "winning" record at 24-24-6


The Coyotes end January on a (7-3-0) record which has moved them into a tie with Colorado for 8th place in the Western Conference.

Thank You,
This team is a work in progress, pretty much need upgrades in every position (especially in 2-6 defence and bottom 6 in the front end of things) hopefully I get a good backup soon in the minors to come up because Smith won't be around forever.
I thought my gaining of Yakupov (someone willing to sign) for Vrbata (guy dead set on the FA) was a good step for the Coyotes and he has fit in VERY VERY well so far.

Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions at all

Good job with this, I'm enjoying the read and you have shown me a thing or two. Keep writing!

January Development, February!

Development



February 1, 2014
The coyotes first game of the new month sees them take on the Pittsburgh Penguins (28-21-5). This game was more or less a practice for the Coyotes as the penguins come into town and destroy them 8-2! The coyotes definitely are missing the likes of Goaltender Mike Smith and Korpikowski!


February 4, 2014
As luck would have it the Coyotes get back Mike Smith in time for the game against the Dallas Stars (23-28-4) as rookie backup Mark Visentin, who came up for Smith gets injured in practice. The Coyotes simply send him back down to portland to heal up and continue in the AHL for the remainder of the season.
The Coyotes are looking to take it to the poor defensive team of the Stars and get back on track to getting into the top 8 spot in the Western Conference.
The first period is a decent evenly played game with the Stars and Coyotes getting near even in shots on goals however it is the Stars that get on the board first with a ES goal by Colton Sceviour. The Coyotes go and kill off 2 penalties this period while not getting a single PP chance at all.
The second period sees a breakdown of Mike Smith as he allows 3 goals on just 10 shots. The Coyotes do get one back on the PP by Mike Riberio as Mike Smith heads to the bench and Thomas Greiss comes in to finish up the game.
The third period sees two more Dallas goals and the Coyotes get their second massive kick in the butt game losing to the stars 6-1. The Coyotes did get a good amount of shots on the net but goalie Kari Lehtonen was the better player tonight.


February 7, 2014
Some surprising news out of Edmonton as the Oilers are able to do what the Coyotes could not and sign Radim Vrbata to a top heavy 6.9 Million/4 year deal that sees Vrbata paid 7.9, 7.5, 6.4, 5.9 Million respectfully. This deal will see Vrbata in a oilers jersey until he is 36 and most likely the end of his career.
More importantly the Coyotes welcome the Chicago Blackhawks (36-18-5) to the Jobing.com arena and look to get a win out of them as they have dropped each of the previous two meetings this year.
The first period is a clean, fast game and sees the Coyotes get out to the 1-0 lead on a blistering 15 shots. The Blackhawks are just as strong on the offensive side being able to get off 10 shots of their own.
The Second period sees the second goal by a Coyote as Nail Yakupov is able to get the PP goal as the Coyotes convert on the only PP opportunity of the game so far. The Coyotes and Blackhawks still are even in shots as they have 25-22 respectfully and the third period will most likely be a duel to the end.
The 3rd period sees the Coyotes defence show up as Mike Smith and the Coyotes get the hard earned win against a huge Western Conference rival in a 2-0 game! The Coyotes also bring themselves within 1 point of the coveted 8th spot in the Western Conference.


February 8, 2014
The Coyotes head off to Dallas to revisit the Stars (25-28-4) who just recently smacked down the Coyotes in a 6-1 victory. The Coyotes will be starting the game with backup Thomas Greiss in net and hope to get revenge on the Stars for the previous game.
The first period sees the Coyotes take advantage of the PP netting 1 of the two possible opportunities. The Stars are able to tie it back up late in the period and the teams head into the break tied up at 1. Thomas Greiss has played a solid game so far to this point and Coach Wells seems pleased with his game so far.
The Second period sees the stars get down 2-1 early on Shane Doan second goal of the night but respond with 3 straight of their own. the Coyotes are able to get back into the game with a second PP goal of the night and go into the third only down by 1 with a chance to win the game.
The third period sees the Coyotes and Stars both pepper the goalies with shots but both are not able to go ahead and score as the game ends the same way the third started with the Stars getting the 4-3 win and the Coyotes handing them their second loss of the season series.


February 27, 2014
As the NHL takes a break for the Olympics the Coyotes and many teams use the down time to get a great break for their players! The Coyotes are back at it in Winnipeg to take on the Jets (32-23-5) and look to get even in the season series.
The first period sees the Coyotes get man handled in the Offensive zone and outshot 13-6 while the Jets get the first goal of the Game on the PP.
The second period sees the Coyotes catch up a little in the shots on goals but also spend another 4 minutes killing penalties but Mike Smith stands tall the the Coyotes keep the game at 1-0 and look to go into the third and get the game tied back up!
The third period sees Bryan Little get his second and third goal as the Coyotes go into Winnipeg and lose 3-1. the Coyotes were unable to convert on any of the 6 PP chances that they had in the game!


February 28, 2014
The trade deadline saw a lot of action but no major deals go down an tonight the Coyotes have different things on their minds as they take on the Colorado Avalanche (26-26-7) in the Mile High city!
The Coyotes come out firing away but it is Colorado who leaves the first period with the 1-0 lead.
The second period sees both teams goalies stand in their strong as neither is willing to budge at all!
The third period sees a few more goals go on the board as the Avalanche are able to get goal number 2 and 3 and look to be taking the 3-0 victory home but it is Kyle Chipchura who ruins the day with less then 30 seconds to go as the Coyotes lose to the Avalanche 3-1.

Sit down with GM Wells

Alright guys so I thought I would take this time to sit down and talk about what I see Arizona being in the final months of this season. We have 22 games remaining and a serious shot at getting the #1 Draft pick this year as we sit only 5 points out of last place in the NHL. I know we are also only a few points out of 8th in the West (Seriously it makes absolutely no sense how we can be so close to both) but I think the best way to the Coyotes to improv is to do the following:

1) Rest Mike Smith - The man has almost 5 games on the next goalie behind him on GP and has been in net for all but 2 of our games! he needs a break! so we will be playing him sparingly. Thomas Greiss will start 3 games and then Mike will start 1. This will give Greiss 17 Games to finish off the Season and Mike only 5. I want to do this so that we can A) not have a serious injury to Mike and B) maybe raise our chances at the #1 pick.

2) Play our Young Stars more - Obviously the best way to improve our young guys is to give them time on the ice! That doesn't mean all my young guys are going to be first liners but I want to even out the playing time much more for the guys and give them experience on the Ice. I think this may also help my older players who at this time of the season are starting to fatigue.

3) Go defensive - I have decided that our offence just isn't good enough to go against others in the league and will be becoming a much more defensive club. I know this will lead to some more boring games but that is okay, I want my guys to gain valuable experience and the only way I see that happening is through teaching great defensive skills to lead to offence.

Please let me know if you will agree to stick around for the rest of the season as we go through a tough last 22 games but look forward to getting a great off season going!

Thank You,
GM Dean Wells

Of course I'm on board - great read and good insight. If your throwing in the towel on the season you might consider seeing if there are any last year contract vets you have no interest in bringing back, and just cutting them to give NHL playing time to some of your "kids" down on the farm. That tactic has worked for me before that some players happiness rating went through the roof and others got some nice attribute increases from the playing time.

Just my $.02
