Mario, a then-28-year-old who hadn't played in North America since a five-game stint in the AHL during the 2008-09 season, was over...

Stop the presses - after losing 11 straight games to start the season, the Arizona Coyotes won twice last week! Sure, they're still the only team in the NHL without a regulation win, but things are moving in the right direction in Arizona. Four Games, Four Points After suffering a record-tying eleventh consecutive loss to start the season on Oct. 28 against the New Jersey Devils, the Coyotes started their week on Monday against the Philadelphia Flyers. After Brendan Perlini scored a power play goal early in the third period to give the Coyotes a 3-0 lead, it looked like Arizona would coast to an easy victory. However, the Flyers had other ideas, as they scored three unanswered goals in the final 18 minutes (including two with the goalie pulled) to send the game to overtime, where Alex Goligoski ultimately gave the Coyotes their first win of the season with just 14.4 seconds remaining in the extra frame.Following their victory in Philadelphia on Monday, the 'Yotes headed to...

For the fourth consecutive week, the Arizona Coyotes took the ice in search of a victory. And, for the fourth consecutive week, the Desert Dogs left empty-handed - they lost all three of their games in regulation last week and have now tied the NHL record set by the 1943-44 New York Rangers with 11 consecutive losses to start a season. Another Rough Week After suffering a disappointing 4-2 home loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 21, the Coyotes packed up and hit the road for a week in New York, where they got things started on Tuesday night at the Barclays Center against the Islanders. Despite holding a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes, the Coyotes fell apart in the second and third periods as they lost track of John Tavares, who recorded three deflection goals to lead his team to a 5-3 victory.The Coyotes then headed to the World's Most Famous Arena - Madison Square Garden - for a Thursday night matchup against the New York Rangers. It was an emotional night at MSG, as the...

Coyotes Goaltending

You might be wondering what has gone wrong so far this year for the Arizona Coyotes. For that, I'd tell you it might be easier to instead ask what has gone right this season. The answer? Not much.At 0-9-1 through the season's first 10 games, the Desert Dogs are just one defeat away from tying the record set by the 1943-44 New York Rangers for most consecutive losses to start a season.Rick Tocchet's Coyotes can't score, can't defend, and can't stop the puck. Being bad at any one of those is usually enough to keep a team out of the playoffs in the NHL. The Coyotes are atrocious in all three areas. Goaltending Continues to Be a Problem The most glaring weakness so far this season for the Coyotes has been their goaltending. Since losing Antti Raanta to injury on Oct. 12, the Coyotes have cycled between Louis Domingue and Adin Hill in goal. Hill got the nod on Thursday night against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden after watching Domingue lose his previous two starts...
