Pengrowth Saddledome, Calgary, Alberta

 

 

Television:

 

 

Radio:

 

From NHL.com.

 

Season series: It's the second meeting between the teams this week. The Coyotes blanked the Flames 4-0 in Arizona on Feb. 18. The teams finish their three-game series back in Calgary on April 12.

 

Big story: The Coyotes complete a two-game swing through Alberta hoping for a better outcome than Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss in Edmonton -- a game they led 2-0 in the second period. The Flames are trying to build on Saturday night's 3-1 home win against Minnesota.

 

Team Scope:

 

Coyotes: A 2-0 lead is usually money in the bank for the tight-checking Coyotes. But that wasn't the case on Saturday, when they saw their lead disappear on goals by Jordan Eberle and Teemu Hartikainen, then were beaten 2-0 in the tiebreaker.

 

The Coyotes had plenty of chances, but they hurt themselves by going 1-for-7 on the power play.

 

"It's disappointing," captain Shane Doan said. "Any time you have a lead 2-0 you expect to win. And unfortunately we didn't. We had opportunities on the power play and we didn't capitalize on them. We have to be better."

 

Flames: Calgary will be trying for back-to-back wins at Scotiabank Saddledome thanks to Matt Stajan, who scored the tiebreaking goal and added an empty-netter in the win against Minnesota. It was just the third victory in 10 home games for the Flames.

 

"For our team this season, this is huge," said Stajan, who had scored just once before Saturday night. "It's a short season, and we have to start winning games. That was a huge third period for us. It was a good team win and we'll go back at it tomorrow."

 

Who's hot: Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith is 3-1-1 in his last five starts, allowing only 10 goals. Mikkel Boedker has points in the past three games. … Stajan now has three goals in his past four games.

 

Injury report: The Coyotes are shorthanded up front due to the absence of Radim Vrbata (lower body) and Martin Hanzal (upper body), both of whom are keys to the offense. Defensemen Derek Morris and David Schlemko are also out with lower-body injuries. … The Flames are still missing goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff (lower body) and forwardsMikael Backlund (knee) and Paul Byron (hand).

 

 

Expected In Goal:

They lost this game with less than 2 minutes left. That is disgraceful. Blown coverages lead to open shots and goals... Somehow Yandle is gonna get blamed... Oh wait he was on the bench....

They "lost" the game way before then.   <_< What's with all thinking there's going to be blame towards Yandle?  Knee jerk sensitivity over protection syndrome? lol I'm sure some thing(s) bad could be traced back to him that ended up with goal(s) against as well as others and I'm sure things can be traced to him and others that should have scored.  As well as good things the player(s) did.  It is what it is. Like I said...win as a team, lose as a team.  I don't give a fuck about singling out any one players errors or achievements...no matter how good any player(s) played in this game or any other that we lose it doesn't matter...it's still a loss and they didn't play good enough and excuses like that player(s) weren't even on the ice when that goal was scored makes no sense nor would it make sense to brag about him just because he happened to be on the ice when we score a goal.  it's not the Phoenix Yandle's. There's a whole team that loses the game or wins the game.

Up by a goal.  Less than 90 seconds left and give up 2 goals in 23 seconds!  When it comes down to deciding the top eight, the yotes may wish they had the 3 points they have given away on this trip.
