Arizona Coyotes

Ice Bites: Defense a trouble area for Coyotes

It's time to face the facts: The Phoenix Coyotes aren't the same defensive team they've been over the past few seasons.

That was on display Saturday as the team lost its first game in regulation thanks to the Anaheim Ducks. That was followed by Monday's showing in Nashville, where the Predators jumped out to a 3-0 lead.

The defensive issues for the Coyotes are complex. One change won't be enough to fix the issue. Players are dropping assignments, which is leading to Mike Smith seeing more shots, which is leading to more goals being scored.

But the biggest problem on the Coyotes blue line? Well, you'll just have to watch and see.
