So the Coyotes are within striking distance of a playoff spot.
I’m still waiting for them to move some spare goalies and pick up some experienced players. You can’t make a playoff run without experience and grit.
If the Coyotes do keep up their relatively winning ways, I’m sure pundits will talk about how Phoenix is this year’s Anaheim.
A key difference between the two teams, though, is when their goalies heated up. Phoenix’s Brian Boucher had an insanely great stretch, but it was at the midseason. Last season, Anaheim’s Jean-Sebastien Giguere didn’t get superhot until around the last month of the season. That allowed him to take huge momentum into the playoffs. Just ask the Red Wings.
Just something to think about.
