I was against Martyman’s promotion and thought it was too much for a guy having a hot start. He hadn’t played in the top six hardly at all, and he definitely hadn’t done it at center until a couple of games this season.
So far, he’s proving he can hang in there. Let’s hope he keeps it up.
The View From The 200 Level
This Coyotes team tonight was fairly close to the improved version we expected heading into the season.
They were better in possession. They controlled the puck.
There were fewer boneheaded mistakes, though Louis Domingue tried his best to turn the puck over a few times.
Domingue was solid, stopping 24 of 26 shots and all but one shot at even strength.
Max Domi awoke and, as was stated above, Jordan Martinook’s line was pretty dominant.
