07:44 AM ET 01.15 | Monday's dispiriting 5-1 loss to Winnipeg was followed Tuesday by a more encouraging performance in a 2-1 moral victory, of sorts, against St. Louis -- which isn't to say all is forgotten for the Coyotes. "For me right now, your key guys have to get in there and stabilize," [Dave Tippett said before the Blues' game]. "Mike Smith has to play better. Keith Yandle has to play better. Shane Doan has to play better, and they want to take the responsibility and do the right things." Those three players have received or accepted the bulk of the criticism during the Coyotes' recent rough patch, and that's probably fair. Not only are they viewed as voices of the team, but their play usually dictates the team's overall success.

"Just the facts, sir. Just the facts." Kind of stating the obvious.

As much money as these guys make I can understand that you may not have it every game. But when you're getting slapped around by a bad team, I'd expect a little more pride and push back from the "better" team.

They embarrassed themselves with that effort.

So did Tippett let out a howl or something?

"Monday's dispiriting 5-1 loss to Winnipeg...."

Can't use the Winnipeg game as a gauge. The Jets had an emotional outburst to celebrate the departure of Noel. Nobody was going to beat them that night.

Don't blame Doan, he's already Tick-ed off.

She keeps dressing like that she won't need any protection.
