Why Not The Coyotes?

from Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic,

“Everybody’s on the same page,” coach Dave Tippett said. “Their work ethic, the commitment to defending, and right through we’re trying to generate chances every line. We’re trying to create offense. Our lines right now have done a pretty good job for us.”

Efforts like that have also helped the Coyotes’ already-strong inner confidence grow. Despite earning the result they wanted, no one was impressed by Game 1’s performance in a 4-3 overtime win.

But even when doubt circled outside the locker room that the Coyotes couldn’t improve for Game 2, the players inside questioned that.

“A lot of times you get in a series where maybe you’re the underdog in a series, and you get a win and everybody thinks the other team should win the next game because they’re supposed to win,” Tippett said. “But our guys don’t understand that. Why can’t we win again?”
