Doan, Coyotes feeling frustrated after lacklustre loss to last-place Sabres

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes' latest loss left captain Shane Doan red-faced with anger.

Playing what had been deemed a must-win game, the Coyotes blew a 2-1 lead and lost to the last-place Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.

After the game, Doan was clearly agitated, calling the team's effort "embarrassing."

Phoenix got off to the second-best start in franchise history, but has struggled lately, falling to ninth in the Western Conference.

The loss to Buffalo was even more aggravating because it came two days after the Coyotes played perhaps their best game of the season, a 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

Phoenix has three games left before the Olympic break, all against teams still in the West playoff race: against Chicago and two against Dallas.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
