The Scouting Report
The Coyotes are gunning for their second consecutive Pacific Division title, and currently their sights are set on the Anaheim Ducks—one of the NHL's top teams over the first month of the season. A year ago, the Coyotes followed the Stanley Cup's legendary gleam and infamous fresh-baked-pie scent all the way to the Western Conference finals in their third straight playoff appearance. This season, the team has started off with a solid 6-2 home record and have won six out of their last eight games overall. Under the captainship of Shane Doan and Goalie Mike Smith (who is now tied for the most shutouts in the NHL this season with three), Phoenix has earned points in nine of their last 11 games. The Pack has already scored 31 home goals as well, good for second-best in the league.
The Phoenix Coyotes' roots expand beyond the borders of the United States, and beyond the NHL, for that matter. In 1971, the Winnipeg Jets gained admittance to the World Hockey Association and eventually won three AVCO Cup championships before the WHA folded in 1979. The Jets were one of four franchises adopted by the NHL after their former league broke up. They played for nearly 20 more years in Manitoba's capital city, but on December 19, 1995, the Winnipeg Jets ownership announced they'd be moving the franchise to Phoenix, where it would adopt a new, Southwestern moniker.
The move to Arizona was met with instant success, as the newly named Coyotes made the playoffs in five of their first six seasons and howling swept the city as a popular hobby among local pets. All told, the Jets and Coyotes have combined for 19 playoff appearances in 33 seasons. The highlight of all those playoff appearances came in 2012 with the team's first-ever trip to the conference finals, where it fell to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
