The Arizona Coyotes take the ice at the Boston Bruins in an NHL matchup.

The Arizona Coyotes have followed a three game winning streak with consecutive defeats after a 5-3 loss to visiting San Jose on Saturday. Nick Schmaltz and Brad Richardson scored in the second for Arizona with Richard Panik lighting the lamp in the third.

Mark Stone scored in the first for Ottawa with Colin White and Ben Harpur assisting. Mike McKenna fell to 1-1-1 for the Senators with both goals allowed on 44 shots.

Brad Marchand scored on the power play in the second period and Torey Krug netted the winner at 3:07 of the extra session. Krug also had an assist and Tuukka Rask got the win for the Bruins with a 27 save effort.

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
