Arizona Coyotes have work to do to improve playoff chances

azcentral.com — After he whistled a drill to a halt and called for a stretch, Coyotes coach Dave Tippett had one more instruction to issue. "Smitty," he hollered. "Get in there."

azcentral.com — They practiced, rested and even had a players-only chat in the corner of the rink after their coach gave a spirited talk. But when the Coyotes returned to action after stewing over a four-game losing streak that dropped them out of a playoff spot during a four-day break in the schedule, their woes were right where they left them.

Arizona Coyotes working to stay out of the penalty box

azcentral.com — The Coyotes spent some of their downtime during a recent four-day hiatus reliving the slew of infractions that have made them frequent visitors to the penalty box lately. "Each one in slow-motion replay," coach Dave Tippett said. While the team may not agree with every call, it's hard to dispute the number of whistled-down plays as anything but concerning.

Work ethic key to Arizona Coyotes' Shane Doan making a difference

azcentral.com — Coyotes captain Shane Doan started to understand how to have an impact when it mattered most in his fourth NHL season, right around playoff time. He helped the team assemble a 3-1 lead over the Blues in the best-of-seven series in 1999 by scoring the deciding goals in Games 2 and 3 and ended up recording four points in the first round.

azcentral.com — Pocketing only one point out of a possible six in a three-game, four-night return from the All-Star break widened the gap between the Coyotes and a playoff berth.
