Arizona Coyotes head coach André Tourigny reflected on a five-goal first period, some inconsistencies he saw for the remainder of the game, goaltender Connor Ingram’s play lately and more postgame after a 6-0 win over the Washington Capitals on Dec. 4.
Tourigny expressed that he was happy with how the team came out in the first period, but stated that there were moments that they struggled with possession and breaking the puck out of the zone.
He also shared his thoughts about how Arizona buried their opportunities and they took advantage while on the power play.
When talking about Washington, Tourigny gave them credit to the Capitals who imposed a “hard” forecheck and put pressure on the Coyotes despite being down by five goals in the first period.
The Coyotes grew into the game following the lead and were defensively resilient.
“I liked how we responded,” Tourigny said. “Sometimes the scoreboard doesn’t say the whole story.”
Unlike their last game against the St. Louis Blues, Tourigny was pleased to see more urgency from his group throughout the game.
As a result, the Coyotes improved to 13-9-2 on the season, remained fourth place in the Central Division and have earned 28 points.
