That's more like it. After struggling badly to score goals during the season's first three weeks, the Arizona Coyotes finally broke out on the offensive end of the ice during Week 4. They lit the lamp 11 times in three games and picked up four points along the way. As we discussed last week, the traditional statistics and advanced metrics both favor the Coyotes this season, and it looks like the offense is finally catching up with the team's sterling defense and goaltending. Can they keep it up on home ice this week? Coyotes Week in Review After getting their four-game road trip started with a 2-1 loss in St. Paul, Minnesota on Tuesday, Oct. 16, the Coyotes headed to the United Center to take on the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night. With Antti Raanta in net, who entered the game with a 15-0-3 record on United Center ice, the Coyotes dominated - buoyed by goals from Lawson Crouse and former Blackhawk Vinnie Hinostroza, Arizona held a 2-1 lead after two...

Vancouver Canucks

In today's News & Notes, Alex Galchenyuk is set to make his season debut tonight, The Vancouver Canucks will be without one of their top young players for few days and Alex Radulov is dealing with a minor injury of his own. Related: NHL News & Notes: Darling, Anderson-Dolan & More Galchenyuk to Make Coyotes Debut The Arizona Coyotes will get their first official look at Galchenyuk in their team's uniform Tuesday as the 24-year-old is set to make his 2018-19 season debut against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Galchenyuk was acquired by the Coyotes from the Montreal Canadiens during the offseason in a deal that saw Max Domi going the other way. In 418 games, Galchenyuk has scored 108 goals and 255 points and has been a dynamic offensive weapon. While he hasn't yet panned out to be the player the Canadiens were expecting when they took him third overall in 2012, he has proven he can be an NHL player and has a 20-goal season and a 30-goal season under his belt...

"Well, at least we can't get off to a worse start this year than we did last season." This was a common refrain amongst Arizona Coyotes fans during the lead-up to the 2018-19 season. Of course, the 'Yotes went winless in their first 11 games last year before recording an overtime victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on the penultimate game of October 2017. It would indeed be pretty difficult to reach that level of ineptitude again this season. However, this year's squad is threatening to come close. The Coyotes have been shut out three times in five games and have yet to score a goal on home ice, sending two big crowds of 17,125 and 15,304 home shaking their heads. Sure, the 'Yotes have three key players in Alex Galchenyuk, Christian Dvorak, and Jakob Chychrun on the shelf with injuries, but facts are facts - this team is spending a ton of time in the offensive zone but has almost nothing to show for it. Arizona still hasn't scored at five-on-five yet and is...

Arizona Coyotes

Another season, another disappointing start for the Arizona Coyotes. Through two games, the 'Yotes have yet to score a goal, and are the only team in the NHL who have failed to do so after one week of play. However, to be fair, the Coyotes played well enough to win in both of their contests - they've just had absolutely no puck luck whatsoever. Let's take a look back at the week that was: Coyotes Weekly Recap After finishing up the preseason with a 4-2-1 record, the Coyotes got their regular season started last Thursday night at the American Airlines Center with a tilt against the Dallas Stars. After a scoreless first period, the Stars' potent offense struck quickly during the middle frame, as Devin Shore, Alexander Radulov and John Klingberg all scored in a span of 1:36 to open up a three-goal lead for the home team. Despite throwing 30 shots at Ben Bishop, the 'Yotes were unable to beat the Dallas netminder and dropped their season-opener by a 3-0 margin. The Coyotes...
