Another Win By The Arizona Coyotes

from Matt Layman of ArizonaSports,

Opportunity knocked, and the Coyotes have answered.

As the Arizona Coyotes found themselves within a few points of a playoff spot after the All-Star break, it was almost hard to believe. The team was (and still is) missing key players due to injury, but a wide-open Western Conference Wild Card race has made things interesting late in the season.

With just a little over a month to go now, the Coyotes won their sixth game in a row on Saturday by beating the Detroit Red Wings, 3-1. It’s the first time since February of 2012 that Arizona has won six straight. The team reached the Western Conference Finals that year....

The win was the Coyotes’ ninth in their last 11 tries.

“I’m just honestly, just happy with the win against Detroit,” Tocchet said. “I thought we played well. As a coaching staff, you look at the game overall and I thought we limited their chances. We got some key goals. But right now, I’m not really thinking about the standings, to be honest with you. Just, it was a nice win for us against Detroit.”
