it's nice to be back. granted it would have been nicer to get one of these threads going sooner, but eh, what are you going to do? i wish the yotes had more fans online (or anywhere, really) so that there was more material to pull from, but this one is still pretty entertaining. OP tried to get some jabs in at the kings, mostly by pointing out they're not too famous in LA. glass houses, phoenix fans. but really, they can throw all the shade they want because we know they're just mad. and their goalie is labarbera.
-Tonight, the Sacramento Kings Organization is going to try and rub it into the Phoenix Coyotes Organization
They are going to remind the Coyotes about how they were too chicken **** to skate with the Clarence S. Campbell Trophy at Jobing.com Arena
They will brag about how they were able to skate with the cup at the home of the LA Sparks
-Philadelphia Flyer Philadelphia Flyer Philadelphia Flyer
Anaheim Duck Olympic Diver (PUNK ASS *****! - Nolan
Not really a King Stoll Lewis
Anje Kopidor Fraser Carolina Hurricane
Scuderi Brad Doty
-their goalie is listed simply as LOL
-I almost forgot.
At least the current members of the media in Arizona can get the basic infomation of our team right.
-Oh man, the only thing I can hope for is that Brad Doty's not gonna get any touchdowns with that ball tomorrow night.
-Raffi Torres is just dying to play in a game like this. I know he would want to take it to this team real ****ing bad.
-I know that if he was able to play in the WCF, the Diver wouldn't pull any of the **** he did in that series.
-Oh Diver #1 would have been scared to do anything on the ice. It's just too bad Torres wasn't able to be out there.
-He would have prefered to have that love tap from Mike Smith over any of the legal hits Torres would give.
-Hell, the Kings can't advance into the next round if they are facing someone like Torres as proven in the vancouver Series a couple of seasons ago.
-Best GDT ever. I ****ing hate the ****ing Kings so ****ing much. Let's beat them into the ground.
-This. Brown us a word class ass hat! He will be punished tonight.
-I am requesting we don't speak his name. I am referring him to Diver #1.
-Amen brother...This is the game for Biz. His first shift, beat the crap out of Brown, 2nd shift beat the crap out of Brown, 3rd shift beat the crap out of Brown.
I don't care if we win or lose as long as Brown get's his A$$ beat tonight.
-I'll be surprised if we see any sort of grudge*match*here boys, we're gonna see two teams with poor records try to improve them.
-This. We're loaded with injuries and both teams are sitting in the basement right now. It's going to be all business tonight about*winning. As far as I'm concerned, since the Yotes didn't really bother to show up in the first three games of the WCF the only grudge match they should have about it is with themselves.
-Expecting someone to headshot Brown, hoping I'm not gonna end up dissapointed.
-No need for this.*
How about we do as the hawks just did to us. Forget about retaliation and just show up and win the damn game.
-This. I love playing the Kings. Always fun to watch.
-Sounds like a good idea but to be fair to the Hawks, Torres wasn't in that game and I think that would have made a world of difference seeing how many Hawks Players decide to target Torres if he so much as looks at Hossa the wrong way.
-Would also like to say that getting ****** Bag Dustin to block me from twitter is one of my greatest achievements in life.
-(A canucks fan. I smell jealousy): Okay Boedker, now's the night!!! ****** those Queens up!!!*
At least we share the hate for those Hollywood Primadonnas!
Looks like something from OUT magazine...
-I have never liked the Kings, or their fugly coach with the bitter beer face. Didn't he used to do those commercials back in the 90s for Keystone Beer?
-A win for the Coyotes and a fat lip for Diver Brown and I'll be cheering!
-There are many, many things to say about the Kings and this new rivalry they've ever so kindly created, but honestly, I just want a god damn win tonight. As lovely as it would be to see Doan skating around with Dustin Brown's head on the end of his stick, just focus on getting back to Coyotes hockey and winning the ****ing game.
-Another packed house tonight...parking lots even sold out
-Looks like Biz is out and we'll see Johnson for the first time.
-Looks like DMO or Doan are the only ones that could take on Brown tonight, we will see...
-This is a really nice start. Nick Johnson is ripping it up.
-Welcome to the Coyotes Nick Johnson! Draws the penalty going around the net.
-Damn, Morris couldn't get his stick on the puck with that wide open net. Finally had some good play at the end of the PP though.
-Great start. I wish Boedker wouldn't pass up so many open shots. He does have great vision though. He keeps getting better and better.
Really like Johnson so far. MUCH better option than Biz.
-Oh well, Yandle may be in the box, but that should be two minutes of turnover free Coyotes hockey.
-You have to be kidding me. Those are some stupid penalties, we can't be doing that. You need every point in this short season. DISCIPLINE!!
-What a ****ing kill. Stone and Michalek were great.
-Now THAT is a penalty kill.
-Woooo, I love this team!
-This PP is embarrassing
-Overall not bad, started hot but no sogs after that 5-3 until the last second and zero on the pp
-Can't complain heading to the*locker room*not down.
second period, starting with kopidor scoring:
-Leaving Kopitar all alone in the slot.. smart.*
-Time to get 1 back.
-Now is a good a time as any to get the PP rolling.
-Boedker!!! From OEL!!! Beautyyyyyyyy.
-Thank god for Boeds. That was a nasty looking PP
then kopidor again:
-No hustle on the back check. Damnit Moss.
-Ugh figures. Terrible pass by Ekman-Larsson, and Michalek caught in no-mans land.
-I believe that started with an OEL turnover, and Moss was pretty lazy on the backcheck.
quick is awesome and robs boedker using his big, strong muscles (seriously foxy, calm down):
-Boedker has to score on those.
-****! So ****ING close!
-Oh man, I thought Boedker had that for sure.
-Boedker, nearly had it! That kid can fly though geesus.
-Got it with his toe unreal
then carter scores:
-Wheres the D?
-Yeah, I don't know about this year guys..
-Where's the goaltending? Rebound is on LOL. Smith, where art thou?
-Christ that was a terrible rebound.
-I could have scored off that rebound!
phoenix's first disallowed goal:
-Quick out of the ****ing crease by a mile and they give him the interference free pass
-what a dive
-Wooooooow, Quick was almost in the slot... ughhh
-Getting flashbacks to last year
-How far out are goalies allowed to go? Quick barely had 1 foot in that blue area.....
-Christ, the Kings announcers are such homers.
-Bob Miller is really an overrated Mighty Ducks 2 announcer.
-This season is going bad quickly.
There are not many games to fix this before we are going to be discussing a lottery pick.
-Can anyone get me a ruling. Is it still goalie interference if the goalie is outside the crease?
-69.4 Contact Outside the Goal Crease - If an attacking*player*initiates any contact with a goalkeeper, other than incidental contact, while the goalkeeper is outside his goal crease, and a goal is scored, the goal will be disallowed.
-Thanks. So that begs the question, what's considered incidental contact?
-At refs discretion. Historically, that rule was used to prevent players from interfering with the goalie when he goes to play the puck. It used to be that if you were out of the crease that far, you were fair game. There's really nothing stopping a goalie from purposefully leaning into or hitting an opposing forward to draw a call.
-Howd did we look in the first period ? We sure didn't*look good*in the second .*
I have to say the Yotes looked awesome against San Jose , up until 8 min left in the third .
But today they sure look slow and very amateur , from what I have seen this game (2nd period )
third period, starting with doan's goal:
-And that's what leaders do!!! Daonerrrr
-Doaner, ****ing finally. Had to make up for his play in the first two periods.
-Zone entry consists of a dump in on the PP. Not going to get it done. Ever.
-OEL is looking like he has a case of the Yandles tonight. Lazy skating, losing battles, poor decision making...
-Moss has looked bad out there tonight
-Michalek has been dreadful tonight.
muzzin's first (congrats, buddy!):
-I miss Mike Smith.
-We've been playing like ******* but Quick has been outstanding.
-I HAVE A SHOT AS HARD AS THAT. WHY BABS? WHY? THAT WAS BEER LEAGUE
- barbs is brutal we need smitty desperately
-Where's the urgency? Everyone just going through the motions.
phoenix's second disallowed goal. muahahahaha. but it was a quick whistle:
-Are you ****ing kidding? 2 goals blown off?
-Are you ****ing kidding me? Even the other ref came over and yelled at him, called it a goal like "are you a moron?"
-Oh for the love of god.
-You have to be ****ing kidding me.
-so two ******** calls that made us not get 2 goals.
-Unfukinreal edmonton threw crap on the ice when they*played*la too
-Hard to win when there's four more white and black skaters
-Hockey is a lot easier when you're given two mulligans
-First one waved off was a fair call but that one was just brutally bad.
-Calls going the Kings way? Colour me shocked. What a ****ing joke.
-Yeah, the refs didn't help, but the entire team looks like crap right now. If they had managed to get a win, I'd still give all 3 stars to the Kings. Vrbata is the only consistent*player*on this team right now. It's Coyote Ugly. I'm worried the season isn't long enough for Tips to get these guys in good enough shape to outwork the other teams before we fall too far down in the standings.
-So I guess there in nothing realistically the coyotes can do about their goaltending situations right now. I would give Johnson a chance Monday, couldn't be much worse than barbs.
-How would I go about applying to be a referee? I have 20/20 vision though, so hopefully I'm not overqualified.
-Were Aucoin, Rozsival, Whitney, Pyatt and Langkow that important to the team? Who'd a thunk it?
-I agree that the lack of ownership may be weighing on them.
-Funny how many times that's been said in the past few years.
I'm afraid its more like they suck.
-"@dave_zorn: Attendance: 14,780 #Coyotes #LAKings #NHL"
-I think the combination of bad turnovers, even OEL had a few tonight, and average goal tending, that is costing us. Barbs has not been bad, he has played well for him, still average at best. Quick was much better as expected. I am not sure how long it will take Tip to get the system in tact, avoid dumb turnovers, and get smith back, and Smith playing well. We could be 10 games in before that happens, in a big hole. I sure hope it does not take 10 games.....The funny part is, the offense seems to be generating more chances but L.A. is missing two key D*men*too, so who knows...
-One thing is certain, if this team is going to try to do drop passes, they REALLY need to work on their god damn drop passes. Nobody is ever expecting it, yet they are used just about every time they try to enter the zone.
-We start getting a lot of teams on back to backs in 2 weeks so just stay healthy and back in it we go.
-It's not necessarily that the players are valuable or not valuable to the team, as I would argue that our team is overall, more talented than last year's.
The difference is that when you have a normal schedule, you can go to practice and review the video to see where the correctable issues are. We simply don't have that luxury this year. While the coaches and players go in with a gameplan, they have not had enough time to dissect the video to find strengths/weaknesses of other teams, and certainly have not had enough time to practice what to do in those situations.
-I think we just lack talent. No. I know that we lack talent.
-We have talent. We are not a very talented team. Then again, having talent doesn't mean **** if you doesn't have chemstry. Good thing for us that unlike the LA WheatKings, we don't have nearly as bad of the chemstry issues over the past few seasons.
-We lack offensive talent. Guys like Kopitar, Carter, Richards etc. We have Boedker who is fast. That's about it. Our D is a different story ofcourse.
-Who won the fights??????:
-Who cares, Kings won the game.
Game 5: What's that teams name? @ Phoenix Coyotes |1-26-13| 6PM - HFBoards
