Oilers Lose Again, This Time To Phoenix 3-1

Perry Nelson

Ryan Whitney and Devan Dubnyk faux pas highlight loss.

Recapping the recaps:

Remember, shots don't matter, sweet, sweet breakout passes do.

The 4th line had some worse percentages (obvi!), but their icetime was severely restricted. I’m really glad we picked up this Smithson guy, he seems to fit right in on the WORST LINE IN HOCKEY™. But that’s the attitude of our management team, we’re going for it, we needed to ADD at this deadline! (What are we going for again? No seriously, why do NHL teams play hockey again, I have a fuzzy recollection of a silver shiny thing.)

Dubnyk was his own worst enemy on the Coyotes' second goal. He took his time playing the puck behind the net, and as Phoenix forward Chris Conner pressured him, the goaltender slid a blind pass toward the right circle, where Vermette jumped on the puck and snapped it into the half-empty net at the 9:00 mark for his ninth of the season.

1. Shoot everything. One of the reasons that the Coyotes weren't able to score against Vancouver is very few pucks got on net. The Coyotes should try to throw everything they can on net and hopefully get a few lucky breaks or a good rebound. The Coyotes managed to outshoot Edmonton 32-30, and Boyd Gordon's first goal came off of a goal line shot. Those are the breaks you get when you keep shooting the puck
