GLENDALE Authentic
Oscar Fantenberg Jersey
 , Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Coyotes lost
their starting goalie for the season, normally a crushing blow for a team’s
playoff chances.The hits literally kept coming.Their dynamic new player, gone
for the year. Their leading scorer, out indefinitely. Six regular players,
missing from the lineup at one point. Just when it couldn’t seem to get any
worse, captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson went down just before the All-Star
break.“I’m expecting the worst; that’s just the way we’re living right now,”
Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said while awaiting results on Ekman-Larsson’s MRI.
“I’m usually a positive guy, but I’m expecting the worst. It’s just
weird.”Thankfully for the Coyotes, the news on Ekman-Larsson didn’t go the same
route as the other injured players before him. He’s only day-to-day.The best
news: Despite all the roster attrition, Arizona is still in the playoff
mix.Relying on leadership from their veteran players Tanner

 , a scrappy group of young players filling bigger
roles and superb coaching by Tocchet, the Coyotes will start the second half of
the season two points out of the final Western Conference playoff spot after
closing the first half 10-2-2.“The number and types of injuries we’ve had, it’s
hard to understand, to believe that they’re even real,” Coyotes GM John Chayka
said. “At some point, adversity hits and you have to decide whether you’re going
to shy away from it or embrace it. Teams form the character of their coach and
guys are looking to Toc to see how he reacts. To his credit, he’s embraced the
challenge, fought through it and guys have followed his lead.”Antti Raanta
struggled with injuries in his first season as a No. 1 goalie a year ago before
playing well down Arizona’s strong closing stretch of the 2018-19 season. Raanta
kept his roll going early this season, only to have it end after 12 games due to
a lower-body injury.Three of Arizona’s four regular centers, Christian
Dvorak Jonny
Brodzinski Jersey Womens
 , Nick Schmaltz and Brad Richardson, went
down with injuries. So did Jason Demers, Ekman-Larsson’s partner on the top
defensive pairing. Defenseman Jakob Chychrun has been limited to 32 games due to
lingering knee issues from ACL surgery last year and forward Michael Grabner
suffered a gruesome eye injury after taking a stick to the face. Grabner
recently started skating again.The cliche of taking it game by game became a
reality in the desert.“Sometimes I can’t tell you who we’re playing three days
from now,” Tocchet said. “My mind is just on that team, our roster, our practice
that day and we’ll deal with what we deal with the next day. There’s always
something that comes up the next day and we’ve just focused on that as a team.
Our energy level is better when we do that. I think when we start looking at
different scenarios down the road, our focus isn’t there, even as a staff. It’s
helped us taking it day by day. I know it’s a cliche, but that’s really
us.”Schmaltz dazzled after being traded from Chicago for Dylan Strome and
Brendan Perlini, racking up five goals and nine assists in 17 games. He’s out
for the season after suffering a knee injury. Richardson was Arizona’s leading
scorer when he went out with a hand injury. He’s listed as week to week.With so
many key players out Womens

 , the Coyotes have been forced to rely on
players who have taken on bigger-than-expected roles.Conor Garland has had an
immediate impact, scoring nine goals — one with his face — with three assists in
23 games. Darcy Kuemper has played well since Raanta’s injury and Ilya
Lyubushkin has been solid on defense.Veterans like Ekman-Larsson, Richardson,
Derek Stepan and Niklas Hjalmarsson have reinforced the coaching staff’s
message, pushing the younger players to fight through the adversity.“I had a
meeting with those guys last month and told them I’m going to really need you
guys to preach what we’re saying,” Tocchet said. “We have a lot of young guys
and they’re going to be looking for direction. They’re going to get tired of
hearing my voice and we really need you guys to step up. They’ve done a terrific
job in being an extension of the coaching staff, made sure the younger players
have bought in.”Tocchet has been the rudder through choppy ice, getting the
players to believe and stick to the system, putting himself in the early
conversation for the Jack Adams Award as the NHL’s best coach.“His approach is
as good as I’ve seen,” Chayka said.The challenge now will be to keep it going.
TORONTO (AP) Mike Babcock was at his daughter’s graduation when he received a
text message from a friend about reports of a strained relationship with star
center Auston Matthews.”I’ll find out in the morning http://www.officialwild.com/authentic-adidas-devan-dubnyk-jersey ,”
the Toronto coach replied. ”I’ll meet him. I’ll ask him in the morning.”As the
Maple Leafs cleaned out their lockers Friday in the wake of a seven-game loss to
the Boston Bruins in the first round of the playoffs, Babcock and Matthews
addressed speculation the coach had ”lost” his player during the series.”I said,
`What’s going on?”’ Babcock told reporters of his conversation with Matthews.
”It’s interesting in Toronto, you (media) do such a good job. You’re everywhere.
You’re under the bench, you’re in the crack in the door, you’re in the car,
you’re in the parking lot. You’re everywhere, and any time anybody does anything
there’s a big story.”I asked him flat-out, `Do we have any (issues)?’ He was
sitting right there. We don’t seem to.”Matthews, who had just a goal and an
assist against Boston Eric Staal
 , said talk of friction also was news to him.”I don’t know
what that’s all about,” he said. ”Our relationship’s fine. Obviously, you guys
can speculate all you want, but I think it’s pointless.”Stuff happens, people
speculate. I can tell you right now it’s not the case.”The 20-year-old from
Arizona scored 34 goals in regular season despite missing 20 games due to
injury, but admitted to being frustrated in the Bruins series following a Game 7
where Toronto blew a 4-3 lead in the third period before losing 7-4.”Auston’s a
young man trying to be the best player in the world,” Babcock said. ”The hardest
part in life is when you’re disappointed and you thought you maybe could have
done more. I know that from me as a coach … it makes you sick, almost. He’s a
good young man. We’re lucky to have him. I’m lucky to get to coach him, and we
continue to grow our product here with him leading the way.”
