Classic Coyotes Tuesday returns Dec. 11

FOX Sports Arizona’s “Classic Coyotes Tuesday” returns on Tuesday, Dec. 11, with one new episode and one classic replay.

The double-header begins at 5:30 p.m. and features the March 30, 2002, game against the Colorado Avalanche highlighted by Krystofer Kolanos’ penalty shot against Patrick Roy. Roy was clearly unhappy about Kolanos being awarded the shot, and when Kolanos scored what proved to be the go-ahead goal, an infuriated Roy whacked his stick against the goal and then threw it at referee Dan Marouelli.

The second episode, starting at 7:30 p.m., features a Coyotes Classic replay of the April 7, 2012, game in which the Coyotes beat the Minnesota Wild 4-1 to clinch the first Pacific Division championship in franchise history. “We were able to get one banner up. It only took 17 years, that’s not bad. But it’s nice to have something,” said Coyotes forward Shane Doan.
