All-Star Break Coming at Perfect Time for Coyotes


The Coyotes head into the all-star break on a positive note by defeating the Colorado Avalanche 5-2 Wednesday night. The Coyotes played this game with a lot more intensity than they did in Tuesday night’s home loss to Edmonton. Eric Belanger scored two goals Lee Stempniak had two assists, while Keith Yandle had a goal and an assist. Yandle is deservingly going to Carolina this weekend to play in the all-star game as he leads the league in points by defensemen.
The Coyotes couldn’t be heading into the all-star break at a better time. Struggling and battling through injuries, the Coyotes have lost four of their last six games. Ed Jovanovski and Derek Morris have returned from injury, but Vernon Fiddler, Michal Roszival, and David Schlemko are still injured. With five days off, this is the perfect time for the Coyotes to get some rest, re-group, and get healthier.
