Coyotes fans have come to expect alternate ledes from me in these mailbags. Today’s topic is covers of songs that equaled or surpassed the original. What led me down this path? The discovery that perhaps my favorite Amy Winehouse song is a cover, not an original. More on that in a second. Anybody who knows anything about music knows that...

NEW YORK — The Coyotes weren’t far away from having a great road trip. They won their first three games, they were tied with the red-hot New Jersey Devils halfway through a game on Saturday, and on the back end of a back-to-back, they outshot the New York Rangers 17-3 in the first period at Madison Square Garden. They just couldn’t solve goalie Igor Shesterkin and the Rangers eventually found their legs after a pair of Coyotes turnovers to record a 4-1 win on Sunday. That left the Coyotes at a good 3-2 on this now completed five-game segment of their NHL-record tying 14-game trip. “I think we got much better,” coach André Tourigny said of the trip. “Look at…

PITTSBURGH — We’ve told you about TD Garden’s inhospitably, but PPG Paints Arena has been the Coyotes’ true house of horrors. In 10 previous games at Pittsburgh’s 12-year-old arena, the Coyotes were 1-9 and had been outscored 41-11, so when the schedule makers added insult to injury this season by launching the Coyotes’ stretch of 20 road games in their...

Non-playoff teams hope to take the next step in their evolution toward contention. The Coyotes goals for the 2022-23 season are a bit more esoteric. As a team, they’ll...

It’s odd how smells and tastes can transport you instantly to a past experience. It happened to me this past weekend while I was in Tucson to cover the Coyotes-Ducks preseason game. My wife and I needed a shot of espresso on Saturday evening to give us a needed boost for our planned late night. After our dinner at The...

André Tourigny faced myriad challenges in his first year as an NHL coach. Year two behind the Coyotes bench will only add to his trials. The Arizona roster has been remade again, robbing the team of much of its previous leadership group, and this season’s roster is built for yet another season of languishing at the bottom of the standings. On top of that, the Coyotes will play in a 5,000-seat (less for NHL games) college arena, their practice facility is a makeshift amalgam of spaces, the team won’t play a single home game in the preseason and it will play 20 of its first 24 regular-season games on the road. None of this phases Tourigny. “I’m not a guy…
