Yandle and Hanzal lead Coyotes to 5-2-0 stretch


Hanzal (left) and Eberle (right), who appears to be attempting to ride his coattails to victory.

The Coyotes have been rolling. After going 4-2 and citing their defensive play as the reason for their success, Phoenix has been holding their own and defeating teams in a bid for a playoff berth. Martin Hanzal scored 4 goals and 5 points to lead the team through the stretch, including two game winners. Keith Yandle and Oliver Ekman-Larsson have proven their mettle as a dominant defensive pairing, combining for 10 points in 7 games.

“Me and Harry have gotten some real chemistry lately, and with guys like Shane and Martin knocking heads on the forecheck, we have had a lot of time and space,” Said Yandle.

Shane Doan had a quiet section, but coach Dave Tippet assured that he left a big impression on the team during this last stretch. “He’s a ****ing animal,” Said Tippet as gracefully as he could.

The team is now five points out of a playoff spot, behind only Vancouver and Nashville.

Eberle Watch: Jordan Eberle knotted 4 assists for the club during the stretch, increasing his point total to 21, 4th on the team.
