Ilya Kovalchuk scored the game winning goal just two days after flubbing a shootout attempt and ending the Devils’ attempt for a win.  However, most of the credit for the team’s win has to go to getting some fresh legs in the lineup as Brian Rolston, Mattias Tedenby and Alexander Vasyunov all potted their first goals […]

Mueller and Wolski Trade Jerseys

The Phoenix Coyotes traded Kevin Porter and Peter Mueller to the Colorado Avalanche for Wojtek Wolski in the first “hockey trade” of the deadline.
