On the Beat: Coyote hunting and a scary story from Columbus

What team beat writers are saying this afternoon: James Gordon of the Ottawa Citizen wonders who the heck would want to buy the Coyotes?  I have been asking the same question myself.  That team has been a money pit for owners, why would someone, particulary in these economic times, want to invest in a money […]

OTB: More on the Sabres’ poor performance, the Blackhawks’ tumble and Brodeur gets night off

What team beat writers are saying this afternoon: A look at who practiced on the Bruins power play today.  Certainly a team that doesn’t lack offensive depth. The Sabres are getting roasted in Buffalo.  Rightfully so. The Hurricanes aren’t expecting the Devils to have an emotional letdown tonight.  Even if they do have a letdown, […]

OTB: Lots of rosters notes for tonight’s important games

What team beat writers are saying this afternoon: Here’s how the Bruins lined up at practice today.  They need to get back to their defensive ways.  The Bruins looked out of sorts against Pittsburgh on the weekend.
