Coyotes get 1st win, beat Flyers in OT after blowing lead
The struggling Arizona Coyotes finally got their first win of the season — but it sure didn’t come easy.
Alex Goligoski scored late in overtime after the Coyotes blew a two-goal lead in the final minute of regulation during a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night.
Receiver K.J. Hill said Barrett’s calmness keeps the Buckeyes cool, and, yes, he does cut loose sometimes.
We definitely got a smile out of him. A little dance moves in the locker room, Hill said.
For Dallas, given the locations and the toughness of its opponents in those six games, lacking the rushing and receiving threat that is Elliott could make for a big negative swing. The Cowboys could win all six with Elliott. Without him, the over/under for Dallas victories is two.
A 4-3 record typically would be an indication of a mediocre team that has a questionable chance at a deep playoff run. That’s not the case for the Cowboys, who still have that chance with their defense starting to play well. But the physical and emotional blow of having Elliott pulled from the lineup could rein in the hot play of quarterback Dak Prescott and that defense at the worse possible time.
He almost threw a handful of interceptions in the drives preceding his airmail to end the game. The struggles aren’t all on the rookie. He’s playing with a bevy of third-fiddle pass-catchers who can’t uncover from defensive backs and don’t have needed chemistry with the young quarterback.
Bears fans can gripe about the four points lost on the overturned play. What Chicago can’t complain about is missing out on seven first-half points with a missed field goal and a Saints field goal turning into a touchdown after an offside penalty.
