Coyotes Plan To Win The Battles Tonight

from Jerry Brown at NHL.com,

“Everybody’s going to work hard. It’s what you do after you get there that matters,” Tippett said. “We were around some battles. But once you get yourself into the battle, it’s the next step: How are you going to win that battle? (Boedker’s goal was) one of the few times we got in, separated somebody from the puck, had another guy there and had an opening.

“We need more opportunities like that or more situations where we put in the work and get results for it, rather than put in the work and don’t finish the job.”

In each of Phoenix’s previous three postseason losses, they have responded with a win – twice via shutout. Phoenix winger Lauri Korpikoski said the Coyotes have a lot better game in them and it starts with stringing together strong and efficient shifts.

“They were all over us in the first. They were good,” he said. “The good thing is, we can be a lot better and that was close to their best, I would think.”
