Phoenix Coyotes v San Jose Sharks

 

I know this is a day or two late, I only have access to two shared computers that are mostly occupied by some blue hairs checking their Geritol prescription, but on Tuesday night I had the chance to see San Jose take on Phoenix. It was grossly apparent that “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky has been hanging out in the Loge for the past week reading the articles. After my rant earlier this week, regarding the lack of desire the Coyotes showed against the Nashville Predators, the Coyotes certainly picked up their intensity against one of the best teams in the league. This was probably one of the better games I was able to see this year. Although I went into the arena planning on seeing a blow-out, Phoenix really took it to San Jose. This game had pretty much everything you wanted, great goals, big hits, and a lot of fights.

Desert Dogs v. Nashville

Last night I had the opportunity to see the Coyotes take on the Predators, and I want to thank Jim Pouba of Post Magazine for the tickets. I had unreal seats 6 rows off the ice right on the Coyotes goal line. I only have a few minutes as I want to join some of the Arizona sunshine while I have the chance, and there is a flock of blue-hairs that are waiting to get on the Google computing machine, but let me give you guys a quick breakdown. To begin, I hope the Coyotes are setting their t-times now, because they looked terrible last night. The desert dogs dropped last night’s game 1-0 (2-0 with an empty net goal, but as Al Iafrate says, “empty net goals are for *******). Have you ever sat through a 1-0 shutout? They are normally ridiculous games with a lot of goaltending and solid defensive zone play. Last night was like watching a high school JV state championship game. When the Coyotes were in Boston last week, they were all over the Bruins, what happened? I have to give Phoenix credit though, after coming off tough 5 game road trip against some of the better teams in the league (minus the Isles). However, Nashville had no excuse, based on the way these two Western Conference playoff hopefuls looked, it will be San Jose and Detroit in the Western Conference Finals. Since there was no scoring and only a few large hits, I’ll break the game down like this:

(On a side note, take this with a grain of salt. I was lucky enough to be raised on Chicago Blackhawk hockey and now I’m a Boston Bruins season ticket  holder, so I have been spoiled with Original 6 hockey.)
