Blue Christmas

It’s been mighty hard to be a supporter of Arizona’s major sports teams lately. The Diamondbacks fell apart in the first round of the playoffs; the Cardinals will be lucky to win as many games as they lose; the Suns have been nonexistent.

But there’s one team that’s been consistently delivering the W’s: the Phoenix Coyotes, who have been leading the standings in the NHL Western Conference’s Pacific Division for most of the season. The team looks to continue its dominance and deliver fans a nice Christmas present with a win over the St. Louis Blues Friday, December 23. Another nice present: the first 10,000 fans in attendance get a free Coyotes Santa hat, so you can get in both the holiday and team spirit.
