A Photoblog. Phlog. Blackhawks @ Coyotes, February 12thShareThis
Okay friends, it’s time to run some of the pics I took from sitting on the glass at the Chicago/Phoenix game (tomorrow I’ll run the Washington/Phoenix ones if I get the pics downloaded in time), sorry I’m a little late on this. Complete with my own snide comments, as you’ve all come to expect.
Chicago Blackhawks @ Phoenix Coyotes
I look startled.
Interesting things of note, at least in my opinion:
*The assistant coach was taking notes on Phoenix, not his own team (it was whichever assistant that runs the forwards – Mike Kitchen?). I wonder if they have one guy watch their opponent and the other tends to the Blackhawks?
*Phoenix was apparently playing a 1-2-2 in the neutral zone, and was utilizing the reverse after winning d-zone face-offs (DZFO).
* The Vrbata note is from right after he scored - He seems to note that it was 8′s fault (Nick Leddy), who apparently effed up a hinge/pinch decision.
* He’d like to see more body contact, which I presume is out of obligation to the Laws of Coaching, which means you have to request more body contact from your team.
* Ummm apparently he wasn’t impressed with Pyatt’s goal off the wing, double underlining the word (WEAK). I’m pretty sure after seeing the replay Corey Crawford was screened and it was tipped.
The rest is pretty generic.
