Hockey legend Ted Lindsay was a giant figure in the NHL

It’s a minor miracle (and product of the West’s decline) that the injury-depleted Arizona Coyotes are contending for a wild-card playoff spot. They’re a point behind Minnesota with a game in hand thanks to a six-game winning streak, a stretch highlighted by Brad Richardson’s four-goal performance against Vancouver on Thursday. That’s one more goal than he scored in 76 games last season. He has two career hat tricks, both against teams that traded him: Before he victimized Vancouver, he scored a hat trick for the Kings against Colorado on Oct. 23, 2010. “The Coyotes better not trade me,” he joked. The Chicago Blackhawks’ late and unlikely revival fizzled when they lost four of five games, including back-to-back road losses to the Kings and San Jose Sharks, and the Colorado Avalanche is teetering after two straight losses. The Vegas Golden Knights, fueled by back-to-back shutouts from Marc-Andre Fleury, have won four straight to take a firmer grip on third place in the Pacific Division and put distance between themselves and Arizona.
