Coyotes Eager to Play Amid WhiteOut
GLENDALE -- The WhiteOut is special, and the Coyotes players are looking forward to taking the ice on Monday night inside Arena for Game 3 vs. the Detroit Red Wings.

On Sunday, the players talked about playing this very important game in such a unique environment.

“It’s awesome. It’s one of the most enjoyable experiences as a player because the emotion is so high and the energy is so high. Hockey is an emotional game and when you get to add that much emotion from a crowd it brings out even better hockey.”
-- Shane Doan

“Any time you’re at home and you have that energy, you’re going to feed off it. The crowd will be great; it’ll be rocking in here. For us, we’ll feed off that and hopefully it’ll give us a great start to the game and really help us build some momentum to keep throughout the rest of the game. We’re excited for the WhiteOut.”
-- Lee Stempniak

“It’s an electric atmosphere. I was up there (in the press box) last season thinking 'Man, I’d love to get a chance to play in this atmosphere.’ So, I’ll be looking forward to it. I’m sure our fans will be all amped up, and hopefully we can get our wins on home ice.”
-- David Schlemko

“I’m really excited to see the WhiteOut and the Phoenix fans cheering for us. It’s going to be a blast. I’m really looking forward to it. I just want the puck to drop tomorrow night.”
-- Kyle Turris

“You want to play in front of your home crowd, especially when it is playoffs and it’s sold out. Our fans, when they’re all here, it’s loud. It’s fun to play in front of them, and especially with the WhiteOut, it makes for a tough atmosphere for the other team, and a fun atmosphere for us.”
