Bruins vs. Coyotes (At Prague)
Boston Bruins vs. Phoenix Coyotes

The Skinny
By Dave Vest
GLENDALE – The Coyotes will try to sweep their two-game series with Boston in Prague on Sunday with another game vs. the Bruins at O2 Arena. The puck drops at 7 a.m. (Arizona time).

Phoenix (1-0-0) dominated Boston (0-1-0) for the first 40 minutes en route to a 5-2 victory on Saturday in the first game as part of the NHL’s 2010 Compuware Premiere series.

Four players scored at least one goal for the Coyotes in the season opener, and nine had at least one point.

While pleased with the victory, Coyotes captain Shane Doan was not pleased that Phoenix gave Boston four power plays on Saturday.

"We have to be more disciplined," Doan told "... we took way too many penalties."

The Bruins, who trailed 4-0 after two periods on Saturday, clearly will be looking to start Sunday's game with more urgency and focus.

"To sum it up, I felt our team, when the game was on the line, made too many unforced errors,” Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien said after Saturday's loss. “When you give a team like that too many opportunities, they’re going to take advantage."
Who's Hot
Playing in his native Czech Republic, forward Radim Vrbata notched two goals and an assist in Phoenix's 5-2 win over Boston on Saturday.
Forward Nathan Horton started his career with the Bruins by scoring two goals in the third period Saturday in his first game since coming to Boston from Florida.
