What’s Motivating The Coyotes?

You might have noticed that those pesky Phoenix Coyotes have risen up the standings and now have a precarious hold on a playoff spot. A big part of this is their recent surge in play, coupled with win-one-lose-one patterns of the Nashville Predators and the free fall of the Minnesota Wild.

But I know the truth. It’s not just Ilya Bryzgalov returning to form or the emergence of Martin “He’s So Hot Right Now” Hanzel or the leadership of Shane Doan.

No, Don Maloney motivated the Yotes with this simple threat: play well or Gretzky leaves and you get coached by this guy. (Sorry for not getting the embedded video, I could only find a link.)
