Tie game with 1 minute left in the game.

Watch out for the linesmen.

I hear what you guys are saying. I realize it is systems play and good goaltending, but every time I watch the Coyotes I can't help but thinking their roster looks like an expansion team's roster.

The Western conference has become such a boring conference with so many teams playing a similar boring style...Phoenix, Nashville, St. Louis, Dallas, etc...

Is Yak still on the bench?

I don't see any reason he shouldn't be getting shifts besides an injury.

Smyth + Belanger being double shifted while Paajarvi and Yakupov are being benched. I officially hate this coach.

Hopefully we don't carry that awfully lazy last minute of play into OT

the last 5 minutes there were the very definition of "playing not to lose" instead of "playing to win".... pathetic

why did Oilers play last two minutes like they were defending a one goal lead late in a playoff game being two men down?

Those last 5-7 mins of the third is an example of a team playing for OT. Mgmt/Coaches don't seem to have the killer edge to take this team to the next level.

Or are they tanking to get another high pick?

That's what happens when you double shift old players and sit the youngsters.
