Coyotes vs. Winnipeg Jets: Two Early Goals, Three Penalty Kills Have Phoenix Up After One Period

Thirty-four seconds into their home ice debut, the Phoenix Coyotes scored. Left winger Ray Whitney took the puck behind the net, passed out in front to center Daymond Langkow and Langkow put it away for the team’s first goal.

Phoenix scored again at the 10:48 mark of the period with defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson shooting one in that looked like it went off a Jets player among a lot of traffic in front of the goal. That excited the heck out the Swedish reporter sitting to my right up here in the press box.

In the meantime, the Coyotes killed three two-minute penalties and peppered Winnipeg goaltender Chris Mason with 11 shots on goal. The Coyotes look well on their way to securing Win No. 2 on the young season.

The Jets have some fans behind them here at Jobing.com Arena, but they haven’t had much to cheer about except the Canadian national anthem. It's 2-0 Coyotes at the first intermission.
