Phoenix Coyotes One Win Away From Western Conference Finals

The Phoenix Coyotes defeated the Nashville Predators by the score of 1-0.

You can be sure Nashville coach Barry Trotz will be questioned regarding the lack of scoring, especially with Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn not dressing for tonight’s game.

The Coyotes played their typical brand of playoff hockey and trusted Mike Smith to do the rest.

The first two games of this series were great, but the last two have been incredibly boring.

That’s how those pricks (Predators) prefer to play. Try to keep the opponent at one goal or none while only scoring one or two.

Gotta agree with Hank.  Kept flipping to the History Channel’s “101 gadgets that changed the world” instead of watching that paint dry.

Trotz just on NHL Network says something along the lines of “I don’t have to defend my decision, they were given numerous chances.”

Trotz probably has a lot less explaining to do than Poile, who put Trotz in this situation.

I didn’t think this game was boring. Got a bit tired of watching Nashville molest Mike Smith, though.
