Domi leads the teams with 11 assists; he has four goals, one being a game winner.
He has 15 points notched, two shy of Radim Vrbata. Now if only he could spark his partner Anthony Duclair to get on the same scoring track.
Another noticeable improvement has been our veteran presence.
Everyone was looking at the rookies this season, expecting a lot, but they weren’t putting the same pressure on the vets. Those same vets who, for the first few weeks, weren’t doing, well, anything.
Players like Radim Vrbata, who is a very streaky player. Once he scored that first goal, he was off to the races. Vrbata has 17 points, eight of which are goals. He also has some beautiful shootout goals.
For all those who doubted him, saying he was a waste of space and money; don’t you feel bad now. Vrbata looks better than ever.
OEL has two power play goals, four power play points, and one game-winning goal. With that he has 12 points, five of which are goals. He even has an impressive shootout goal against the Oilers. Let’s not forget… that’s a defenseman doing that.
Goalies are another thing on an improvement track. Our goalies are becoming more stable and reliable. Besides injury, at least. Now if only we could get defense on the same page.
One Goal Games
Although the Arizona Coyotes haven’t got many, there have been some that deserve credit. The team has two big shoot-out victories and two overtime victories.
A majority of the Coyotes wins and losses have been one goal games. Which depending on how you look at it, may be a good thing.
I view it as good, as it shows that potential and ability is there with this team. We just need to find it and fix mistakes before the third period, instead of playing only twenty minutes out of sixty in any given game.
If the Yotes were repeatedly getting blown out of the water, then fans would have a bigger reason to worry. Thankfully, they’re not.
The New Arena
Another highlight to keep in the back of our head is the new arena.
The Arizona Coyotes organization has been working tirelessly to get this new stadium deal going. Now that it is finalized they are on track to building and creating the image.
There is a bright future for the Coyotes in Tempe.
