The coyotes are back. Haven’t heard them in a while but last night there it was, that familiar, creepy yipping sound not so very far away.
From February 16-28, the Phoenix Coyotes went 6-0. Since then, they are 0-5. During that six-game winning streak, three games went to shootouts and one to overtime. During this losing streak, only one game went beyond regulation, Thursday’s shootout with Minnesota. During the winning streak, they only won one game by more than one goal. During the losing streak they have lost two by two or more goals.
During the winning streak, the largest shots on goal discrepancy came against the Canucks on the 28th. The Coyotes were outshot 40-35. That isn’t a glaring gap. In the five games they have just lost, the Coyotes outshot their opponents by as few as 6 shots and as many as 17. In Calgary the shots were even. Doesn’t look like winning on the shot clock has been helping the Coyotes any more than it helps the Sharks.
