There was much crapping on the ice in Vancouver last night...

The crap calls on Carcillo and Sauer killed us last night. And even though I'd like to blame that loss entirely on the refs, I can't. The fact of the matter is that we just needed one goal to tie it up throughout most of the game & we just couldn't get it. Our PK was great & Bryzgalov played like a mad-goalie. Against one of the best goal-tenders in the league, he held his own quite impressively by stopping 31 of the 32 shots he faced. The Coyotes defensemen were ON IT last night. But where were the forwards? The Canucks played well also, Luongo secured his third shutout in five games and NHL-leading fourth overall with a dramatic glove save on Ed Jovanovki's blast with 25.2 seconds left and the Phoenix net empty for an extra attacker.

The Murray-Fedoruk-Carcillo line was the best Phoenix line on the ice last night. They got out there and gave it their all, the rest of the forwards looked... lost. Our top guys really let Bryz down last night. We had stellar goal-tending going on, the D-men were on it and the fourth liners were playing their hearts out. But our top goal scorers let us down. Doaner? OlliCoyote? Mueller? For Shame... You've all got to show up on the same night in order to get a win.... The Coyotes head back home now to take on the Panthers Saturday night and the Sharks Sunday night.

It occurs to me that I have not taken the time to properly introduce myself. My apologies... My name is Heather, I've been asked to contribute to the blog on behalf of the Coyotes. I look forward to chatting with you all and bringing you all the news from Coyotes Country as we watch this young and exciting team grow and develop. HOWWWWWWWWWWWWWL!!!

Please don't blame the Refs. Only losers blame the Refs, it really makes you look like an idiot, other then that It was a good read.

In the end losers blame the refs for bad calls, they happen to every team, but winners find a way to win the game in spite of it... no excuses

Do you mean when Carcillo took 3 strides and blindsided mike brown who wasn't even close to the puck? Carcillo was whining the whole game and upset that brown tossed him on his head in the first. He let his emotions get the best of him and took a cheap shot 180 feet from his own net. I'd blame your namesake before anyone else and then thank Bryzgalov and the goal posts for keeping the game from being a washout.

Anonymous: Did you actually read the post or just the title? I said I'd LIKE to blame them, didn't blame them. You should read a little more thoroughly before implying that someone is an idiot. The fact of the matter is that we needed to score. Period. We handled the penalties well. We just couldn't get the puck in the net.

coryberg2: Carcillo cannot be blamed for losing the entire game. He played well for the most part. I won't argue about the calls, whats done is done. I don't agree with them, especially the one on Sauer. But such is life.

Refs can have an impact on the outcome of a game.

She is not blaming the refs, but they certainly did not help the Coyotes to get any momentum going. It can be quite difficult to get the offense going when you are constantly killing off penalties.

In the end, losers post anonymously.
