Coyotes ‘trying to be cute’ in loss to Flames

The Phoenix Coyotes find themselves in a three-way tie in points with the Dallas Stars and Columbus Blues Jackets, but still two points back of the Detroit Red Wings in the Western Conference playoff race.

The Coyotes secured one point Friday, but not two, losing 3-2 in overtime to the Calgary Flames, who are 3-7-0 in their last 10 games and battling it out with the Colorado Avalanche in the bottom of the conference standings.

Not the desired result, especially after Phoenix jumped out to an early lead less than two minutes into the game. Perhaps they took the struggling Flames a little too lightly.

“We were trying to be a little too lackadaisical, too relaxed with the puck, trying to be cute,” Coyotes captain Shane Doan told the Associated Press.

“Scoring a goal early was big but it almost put you back into the kind of relaxed state instead of being aggressive. We can’t have that happen.”

    It’s hard to imagine a team who collectively, looked like they fell out of an ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down as being…cute?

      No kidding!
      Anyway, I sure hope they play better next season in QC because I have been waiting a long time for their return.
      Of course most of the mediocre players will be removed and the roster filled in with Quebecois, but that’s how the world works.

        well if history is any indication even if you do somehow get a team in QC again they will , be forced to relocate before long and win the Cup the year after they leave.
