Good thing you started this thread 'early'. I nearly forgot about the early start time.

Yeah, I was surprised by the early start too. If I didn't check the time, this GDT probably wouldn't have even gone up.

I love early stars on the weekend. There's something really nice about snuggling up in bed in your pj's and watching some hockey.

Muppet 02-25-2012 01:32 AM

Awww crap, just realized the start time. I believe that's 10am for me.. on a Sunday! Oh well, better set the alarm clock.

AZcoyotes33 02-25-2012 02:45 AM

Pool party from 10-2 be back just in time for the game....ONLY in Arizona! love it

GO YOTES!!!

It's 10 PM Saturday for me. Can't more games start this early, please? :D

Gwyddbwyll 02-25-2012 06:05 AM

10am on Sunday morning sounds perfect.

Few games are at a watchable hour for me, usually at 4am.. 9pm is fantastic, but I forgot and will be out all evening. :rant:

TickleMeYandle 02-25-2012 08:13 AM

Oh yeah? Two can play at the funny pictures game.

These are the games we should win, although Edmonton has been playing well the past couple. Please don't be asleep again in the 1st period, that's all I ask boys!

Don't let the Oiler record fool you. This is a very talented team up front. Their weakness is inconsistent goaltending (Dubnyk is either hot of cold) and defense (at least 2 NHL d men away from being competitive). This team can create offense and with that speed they can draw penalties and beat defensive schemes. If Phoenix has to chase the game and the defense starts to pinch we could be blown out very easily.

I actually think that Tambellini should be canned for his unwillingness to proactively address their D. It's embarrassingly awful. Chris Summers could quite literally step in and be in their top 3 today. Maybe top 2. I've seen AHL squads with a more solid backline.

The Coyotes need to beat the teams that they should beat. The Oilers record speaks for itself. If the Coyotes lose to Vancouver, it's one thing. If they lose to the Oil, it's another.

You are right. We play our system, we should win. If we chase the game though we could be in tough. I'm very impressed with their forward group. Extremely good. Their D is absolutely horrific though and our group needs to shred them early and often. Don't leave the game in the hands of Eberle and Hall. It'll be a frustrating night if we do.

Is Smith starting?

I would assume yes considering Labarbara's somewhat surprisingly good record against the Canucks who we play on Tuesday.

Coyotes page says he's expected to start.

The big question is if the team is going to start today, unlike the last 2 stinkers of 1st periods. :sarcasm:

kihekah19 02-25-2012 10:44 AM

Keep 'em from skating just like we did the first time they showed up in our barn this season and we'll be alright.

MessierII 02-25-2012 10:44 AM

Hoping for a shootout so you guys still get a point to stay ahead of Calgary.

I'm hoping for a shutout by Mike Smith and the Desert Dogs! :handclap:

awfulwaffle 02-25-2012 11:21 AM

Western Conference Games today:

Phoenix @ Edmonton
Colorado @ Detroit
Chicago @ Los Angeles
San Jose @ Nashville
Philadelphia @ Calgary

Of course, doesn't matter because Phoenix is going to get the 2 points today!

Something to note though, Sharks will have 1 game in hand after tomorrow.

AZcoyotes 02-25-2012 11:24 AM

28-1 Coyotes

Vermette with 27 goals, and Smith gets one too because he feels like it.

franfrey* 02-25-2012 11:53 AM

Hemsky with hat-trick today!!!!!!!!!! :yo::yo::yo::yo::yo::yo:
Be prepared for a shellacking Pheonix!
By the way, the Oilers have been very very good at home this year (same home record as the Coyotes actually)
