Phoenix Coyotes successful so far in playoffs

April 25, 2012

Todd Walsh of Fox Sports Arizona and the Coyotes Radio Network talks about why this season of hockey has been different for the Phoenix Coyotes.Walsh says goaltending has made a huge difference for the Coyotes. Things started out shaky for goalie Mike Smith, but the team stood behind him and they managed to turn things around.
