He's an asset to this team, but I wouldn't go running to your fantasy league to add him based on a one-goal performance. He lines up with Boyd Gordon currently, who isn't exactly known for his playmaking ability (his assist tonight hit him in the chest and bounced onto Korpi's stick). We are a better team with Lauri for sure, but if he gets 10 goals in this shortened season I think we'll all be happy.

Disclaimer - game synopsis you've all heard already but bears repeating so I can get my two cents worth in appears below:

Yandle looked like the Norris candidate from two seasons ago. Beast.

Chad Johnson was obviously nervous in there to start, but they gave the Preds absolutely nothing in the first and he settled in from there. Sound positionally, which is a stark contrast to Barbs. He might just be the stop-gap we need until Smith gets back and into top form again.

This lineup, with Torres in for Biz / Hanzal in for Bolduc and Klesla in for Rundblad, is as good as any we've iced. Whether that translates into a playoff spot remains to be seen, but if they battle like they did tonight in all areas of the ice - on a consistent basis - we'll be right in the thick of things come April.

I'm thinking that the coaching staff just had to make a guess on that personnel decision because they didn't get to see the borderline guys play with the NHLers in camp and preseason.

Seems like things are starting to settle out a little bit and Johnson will get more minutes.

Gotta love Tippett. "If it ain't broke, you haven't looked hard enough."

I just noticed the coyotes are 3rd in shots on goal and 7th in scoring. Who would have thought? The production is a pleasant surprise and I hope it continues. I think it will come down some league wide as defenses and systems tighten a little but I hope the coyotes keep those rankings production wise. I don't think the production is a result of taking more chances, I actually think less turnovers will help the production.

#Coyotes on @FOXSPORTSAZ last night did a 1.3 rating = their best reg season rtg since 1.3 on 10/16/10 (DET) & 1.4 on 4/3/10 EDM
Nearly tripled their viewing audience last night. Viewers slowly become ticket buyers.

You have to remember Hanzal is probably back Wednesday, so I would think there is going to be a few changes. My guess is Bissonette and Bolduc will be out.

Interesting that Nick Johnson did so well, yet he had the least amount of ice time just ahead of Bissonette.

Easy to say this now but from early in the 1st, it was evident this was the best the coyotes have played this so far this season. I guess like Yandle was saying, they just had their legs under them tonight. I don't know what it is about Rinne, he's a damn good goalie but we just have his number for some reason. I'm really liking this '13 version of Dmo, he's playing like it's his UFA year. And kudos to Schlemko, blocking shots with his back, then a kick save.

I hope they go back to C.Johnson next game. Send Babar down when Smith gets back! Probably won't happen. Only 1 more game till Raffi-time!

Wow that is impressive, their best regular season ratings in almost 3 years. I think maybe more people might be checking out the Coyotes because football is over, the Suns suck, no baseball yet, and they assumed the ownership thing has been solved.

I agree with all of your reasons.

Granted, it is just one game, but I think it also means that people do care about the Coyotes - it's just too difficult for most people to get home, get dressed, get dinner, get the kids, and get out to Glendale by 7:00.

It is. By the time I get off work and get home, it's 7:15. I missed Vermette's goal!

I would have loved to see a 4-0 game, but I had my own game to play. I sent the husband and the boy in my place. We didn't do quite so well, ended up on the wrong end of a 0-3 game. :-(

N. Johnson draws his fourth minor penalty in two games, and roofs a goal up top. Really liking this guy as the 4th RW. No need for Bissonnette on this team. I'd much rather keep Chipchura and Bolduc up than Biz.

XX, I still don't hate your Steckel idea. With Torres, Moss, Chipchura, and Johnson already in the bottom six, Steckel gives us a ton of beef in the lower lines.

I like Vermette a lot better than that 2nd we gave up. He's been so good.

Speaking of good, Morris and Schlemko have been great.

Watched the condensed game on GCL. Nick Johnson features in easily 60% of the highlights. Such an interesting lineup for Tippett to work with. Now with Torres returning we finally have third and fourth line energy players like May-Letowski-Wilson used to be.

Same situation, caught the first period on TV then went over to Gilbert and lost 3-2... funny coincidence, today I'm in SkiPro getting fitted for rental skis for this weekend, kid fitting me out was the opposing goalie from last night. And, turns out I used to be teammates on a different team with his older brother.

Sure it was only one game...but it was the Preds (not exactly a major draw).

Edit: No disrepect to Preds fans. We're in the same boat.

True, all Edmonton goals last game came on the PP. If the D is tight, good goal tending, and limited penalties, we should be fine...
