The Arizona Coyotes will faceoff against the New York Islanders tonight at 4 pm Pacific time. With the Coyotes on a nice four-game win streak, and the game tonight there is plenty of news to talk about in today’s Morning Howl Report!
The Coyotes are currently on a hot streak, and there are plenty of people to thank for it. Could it be Rick Tocchet and his excellent coaching? Possible the great play of goaltenders like Darcy Kuemper and Antti Raanta, or maybe it is the great play of Nick Schmaltz who is racking up the points so far this season. (NBC Sports)
When you talk about a hot streak for a team one thing that is never really brought up is what comes after. I truly believe the Arizona Coyotes will make the playoffs, but there is a real possibility that this team fails to make the playoffs. It is still too soon to call but we entertained that idea here at Howlin’ Hockey. It did not get the best rep overall, to say the least. We brought up the idea that if the Coyotes fail to make the playoffs someone will have to take the blame, and we pointed to head coach Rick Tocchet. Only time will tell what happens if the Coyotes fail to make the playoffs. Hopefully, we don’t find out. (Howlin’ Hockey)
Even though the Arizona Coyotes beat the New York Rangers on Tuesday there was still a sour taste in some fan’s mouths. Everyone that scored on Tuesday was at one point a Coyotes player, including the Rangers very own Tony DeAngelo. DeAngelo is an ex Coyotes player so watching him play well with another team might come at a bit of a sting. (Blue Line Station)
