Burned, Again

Coyotes collapse against Flames for 2nd straight season


Sven Baertschi roofs one on Mike Smith in Game 7.

Game 1: 2-1 W
Game 2: 1-0 2OT L (Stempniak scored winner)
Game 3: 1-0 W
Game 4: 4-1 W

Game 5: 3-2 L
Game 6: 4-1 L
Game 7: 6-3 L


After Max Reinhart made it 4-1 Flames in the 2nd period of game 7, the look on GM GreeningSingleLady's face summed up the last 3 games of the series: a great big .

For a 2nd consecutive playoffs, the Phoenix Coyotes blew a 3-1 series lead to the Calgary Flames and lost in 7 games. After the conclusion of game 7, GM GreeningSingleLady was interviewed, and did not lash out this time.

"It sucks to have this happen again, but I'm proud of the boys" he said. "We had a good year, and just unfortunately met the same opponent that took us down last year. As for changes, don't expect much. I like how our team looks".

It should be a quiet offseason in Arizona. However, look for goaltender Mike Smith to potentially be dealt. Alex Stalock has appeared to have overtaken him for the #1 job.
