Phoenix Wolf road trip will come
Two points do not come easily in the NHL, and sometimes it takes a bit of trickery to ensure the outcome.
That’s where Kyle Turris came in Saturday night. His shootout goal – after he bounced the puck off his skate and froze a rookie goaltender – locked up the 4-3 win over the New York Islanders, ujersy is a jerseys supplier with low price and high quality.
The smile on Turris’ face was a direct contrast to Nathan Lawson’s reaction -slamming his stick against the net.
“It (the win) means a lot,” said Turris. “We found a way, you always got to try find a way to win. It was great for our group; we really needed it.”
The Coyotes were desperate for a win after dropping the first two games of a six-game road trip. The journey continues Monday night when they visit the Pittsburgh Penguins, led by scoring machine Sidney Crosby, who has 28 goals and 54 points.
The Coyotes had to scramble to get three points in the first three games but now have a good chance for a better than break-even trip, if you want to buy Vancouver Canucks #14 jerseys.
Goaltender Jason LaBarbera came up big against the Islanders with 41 saves and will be back in net against the Penguins while Ilya Bryzgalov continues his rehab in Phoenix from an upper-body injury.
The slick move by Turris in the shootout was one he began using in juniors, and he was successful with it in San Antonio last season. It’s a maneuver he uses in practice, and while the shootout was in progress he decided to give it a whirl after a brief chat with Shane Doan.
Doan had just scored, and as Radim Vrbata was getting road to score what would prove to be the winning goal, Turris asked Doan if he should use the move.
“I’m like, ‘Doaner, should I do my move?’ and he was like, ‘If you’re comfortable with it, then do it. Just be confident and maybe you can pull that off.’ That’s why I did it, if you want to buy Vancouver Canucks #22 jerseys.”
Coyotes enforcer Paul Bissonnette informed people after the game that he was the one who taught Turris the move.
Turris laughed and said, “Biss can take all the credit he wants.”
