Last night the Arizona Coyotes honored Phil Kessel with his 1000th NHL game ceremony. That and more will be covered in today’s Morning Howl Report!
Playing games every other day has been fun in my opinion for the Coyotes. It will be interesting to see what they do with an extra day off before facing off against the New York Rangers on Tuesday.
As we mentioned above Kessel was honored for his 1000th NHL game, but they’re still are a lot more highlights to come in Arizona milestone wise, check out some of our milestones to watch! (Howlin’ Hockey)
You never want to see your team get outshot or outplayed, but when you walk away with the win you do not really care how you got it.
The Coyotes got another win last night. However, their competition was not the best, let’s see what the coach himself had to say following the game!

I really am excited to see what the Coyotes do with their blue line going into the next few weeks. They have a lot of great players that could factor into the team, including Aaron Ness who was recently called up from the AHL following Oesterle’s injury. (Arizona Sport)
Today we will unveil our 3 stars of the week, who do you think deserves a spot in our 3 stars? Check out last week’s 3 stars where Darcy Kuemper took the number 1 spot! (Howlin’ Hockey)

If the playoffs started today, at this very momentum the Arizona Coyotes would be in a playoff spot. What a beautiful thing. Arizona now has 9 points, giving them the fourth-best record in the Pacific Division behind only Edmonton (14), Anaheim (12), and Vegas(12). However all 3 of those teams have played at least one more game than the Coyotes so there is still hope for the Coyotes moving up the standings, and it is a long year.
