The Coyotes can claw their way back into relevance, but it will take an absolutely herculean effort. The first step would be winning Monday, December 29's matchup against the Philadelphia Flyers at Gila River Arena, 9400 West Maryland Avenue. The Coyotes have been awful at defending their home ice (pretty much every loss in their recent skid has happened in Glendale) so a home win would be a big first step.

The puck drops at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $35 and are available via Ed Kummerer

"All That Glitters is Not Gold"

It's an official "doy" that all things sparkly are not made of Glenn Beck's go-to metal. And, in fact, the yellow-toned substance has taken a popularity hit in recent years, thanks to the covetable and very shiny platinum. Just so happens, platinum also trumps gold in the photography department, as evidenced by Phoenix Art Museum's "All That Glitters Is Not Gold." The exhibition comprises platinum prints, including works by Margarethe Mather and Dick Arentz, from Tucson's Center for Creative Photography.

See the shiny shots through March 1, 2015, at 1625 North Central Avenue. Hours on Tuesday, December 30, are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $15 for adults. Visit or call 602-252-1880. Becky Bartkowski
