Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

On Tuesday night, the Arizona Coyotes and Vancouver Canucks met in Glendale, Arizona, in a matchup between two Western Conference foes. The Coyotes had been on a roll, having won five of their last six games, and were looking to keep the momentum going against the Canucks.

The Coyotes started off strong, controlling the pace of the game and creating quality scoring chances. However, the Canucks managed to keep the Coyotes at bay and the game remained scoreless after the first period.

In the second period, the Canucks opened the scoring thanks to a goal by forward Brock Boeser, his 16th of the season. The Coyotes responded shortly thereafter when defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson scored his first goal of the season, assisted by forward Christian Fischer. The game remained tied at 1-1 heading into the third period.

In the third period, the Coyotes continued to press the Canucks, and eventually broke through when forward Richard Panik scored his 12th goal of the year, assisted by defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson. The Coyotes added an insurance goal late in regulation when forward Clayton Keller scored his 17th of the season, assisted by Panik. The Coyotes held on for the 3-1 win.

The Coyotes outshot the Canucks 37-24 in the game, and their defense was on point all night, not allowing a single goal after the first period. It was a strong team effort, with contributions from all four lines and both goaltenders.

The Coyotes have now won six of their last seven games and are tied for second in the Pacific Division with the Calgary Flames. They’ll look to continue their hot streak in their next game against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night.
