Raising Arizona Coyotes

The Phoenix Coyotes are dead. We’d say good riddance -- in 17 years, the old ‘Yotes only won two playoff games -- but this new hockey club, the Arizona Coyotes, isn’t doing much better. At about a third of the way through the season, our guys are in the bottom half of the Pacific division and are set to face the Western conference-leading Nashville Predators, who beat them in a shootout last time they met. But the season and our new franchise are young, and no baby team grew into a mature dynasty without a little support, right?

The puck drops 7 p.m. Thursday, December 11, at Gila River Arena, 9400 West Maryland Avenue in Glendale. Tickets start at $15. Call 480-563-7825 or visit for more.
