The Arizona Coyotes With A Home Win Over The San Jose Sharks

from Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic,

The Coyotes may not get many chances to play nationally televised games, but they made the most of a rare opportunity in Wednesday’s 6-3 win over the San Jose Sharks at Gila River Arena.

This being just the second and final national game for the Coyotes, who were also featured on NBC Sports Network on Oct. 16 in Minnesota, it felt like a statement game for Arizona to put together such a solid effort against a Sharks team built for a long playoff run.

For a banged-up Coyotes team that is awarded little national exposure and entered the game with a lackluster 8-12-2 home record, Wednesday was a good choice for a strong performance that was in many ways an accurate representation of their best selves.

“It was a great team effort,” Coyotes forward Christian Fischer said. “It was a nice little touch that it was an NBC game and we’re obviously a market that doesn’t get showcased too much. I thought we did a nice job showing who we are. That’s a perfect win for who we’re trying to be as the Coyotes.”
