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.
your reports are awesome and i love the picture of the actual game in there, nice job
They pot 3 goals in the first 30 minutes of play off terrible defensive breakdowns and great team passing (and a hell of a slot shot). I then come alive and score one goal in the second, another in the first 10 minutes of the third, and another with under 5 minutes to go. I am able to hold on for the shootout, but after 6 rounds Dan Cleary is able to put one past Smith for the shootout winner.
4-3 final score. Crazy comeback, crazy game all around.

There isn't an actual "In Game" way to do this but i think players from around the league from all teams deserve Recognition.
