It’s okay to admit it that when it comes to the Arizona Coyotes, you’re a fair-weather fan. Most Phoenicians are. And if you were to deduce that — as you’ve heard little about them lately — they’re having a lousy year, you’d be correct. But the team’s abysmal record doesn’t tell the whole story. With more than half of the season remaining, the Yotes have already endured some serious injuries and have played the large majority of their games on the road. And besides, the Coyotes are the youngest team in the league and are quite the work in progress. Feel free to tune out again until the Yotes hit their stride. Meanwhile, there’s reason to be hopeful. The Toronto Maple Leafs visit Glendale’s Gila River Arena, 9400 West Maryland Avenue, at 7 p.m. on Friday, December 23. Tickets are $29.50 and up. Visit www.nhl.com/coyotes for details.
