Sorry to disagree Howie, but at no point in that game did I think, 'Wow the Coyotes are really buzzing', they weren't "hungrier', unless you're talkng about Phil Kessel thinking about burritos.
That game was won by Darcy Keumper, win by the goalie, die by the goalie- we've had our share of nights where Moose or Hartsy were our best players too.
As a general note, I don't think I would enjoy watching my team play the Coyotes 4 times a year, they interfere, they grab jerseys, h
Seems like a perfect opportunity, if they go with the 7D lineup to sprinkle in Ghost (or Myers for that matter) at forward for a shift or two. I'm surprised coaches don't try that kind of thing a bit more, by which I mean ever. You never know where you might find some magic on the ice.
Well, the Yotes were a shade hungrier and their goalie was a shade better than ours. There was no lack of effort, but this Phoenix team plays tough, team D. Our captain didn't help with some untimely penalties.
