GAME DAY: Phoenix Coyotes

[from Flickr, Kassel's photostream]

The Coyotes are going to be desperate for a win. They were playing quite well for a while there, nicely positioned inside the top 8 in the West, but lately they've lost 10 of their last 12. They're going to be quite hungry and aggressive tonight: they don't want to end up as endangered as their cousin the Mexican Gray Wolf. HIY-OH!

Seriously, there are only like 250 of them left.

On the other hand, the Thrashers seem to be finally fulfilling John Anderson's "I dare you to out-score us" strategy. They've given up a lot of goals on this crazy jaunt through the desert, but they've scored many more. And despite the enduring majesty of Shane Doan, the 'Yotes have a hard time putting the puck in the net.

We have a good chance tonight.

I do love Wile E.
