Bryzgalov issues quote of the day
Coyotes goalie Ilya Bryzgalov was asked on Friday about Detroit's longstanding tradition of fans hurling octopi onto the ice to help bring good luck to the Red Wings. Does it bother him at all?

"No," he said. "They're not throwing the whole octopus on me … otherwise, I would stink."
Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
