Coyotes, longtime coach Dave Tippett suddenly split, citing ‘philosophical differences’

The Coyotes and longtime coach Dave Tippett announced a “mutual agreement” to part ways Thursday, continuing a changing of the guard in the desert.

Drake Caggiula opened the scoring just 3:31 into Game 7. The Ducks regrouped. From that point on, the Oilers managed only 11 shots on net. Andrew Cogliano tied the game in the second Make Cheap Jerseys Online period and Nick Ritchie gave Anaheim its first lead in a Game 7 in five years.

Getzlaf, a member of the Ducks’ 2007 Stanley Cup championship Miami Dolphins Cheap Jerseys team as a 22-year-old role player, was celebrating his 32nd birthday when the game began. He’s looking every bit the Conn Smythe candidate while Capitals counterpart Alex Ovechkin faces questions over a lackluster performance when it mattered.

3. Ryan Kesler, Ducks — Kesler assisted on the game’s first goal Wednesday. He’s only scored once himself in the playoffs, but his best work was done in the defensive end in keeping Connor McDavid in check. The Oilers wunderkind had three goals in the series but none came in the final two games.

2. Nick Ritchie, Ducks — Ritchie now has three goals in the playoffs and two in the last two games of the series after scoring the game winner.

1. John Gibson, Ducks — Gibson was pulled after three goals on six shots in Game 6 but responded with a 23-save performance in the second Game 7 of his career.

Anaheim also agreed to trade defenseman Shea Theodore to Vegas as incentive to pass on exposed blue liners Josh Manson and Sami Vatanen, the teams announced.

Vegas has been expected to acquire forward Marcus Kruger from Chicago via trade in an Lebron Cheap Jerseys attempt to clear cap space. That may no longer be the case after the team learned Wednesday Knicks Cheap Jerseys veteran Marian Hossa won’t play in 2017-18, according to the Chicago Tribune .
