Coyotes chasing the record books with offense on penalty kill.
At what point do the Arizona Coyotes take any infraction simply to go on the penalty kill? While that's an absurd notion for any team, it's amusing to consider because Arizona has now notched nine short-handed goals this season through only 14 games, including two on the same minor penalty during Thursday's overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. The Coyotes now have a shot at the short-handed goals record. The 1983-84 Edmonton Oilers are the current record holders after scoring 36 short-handed goals. The Coyotes' penalty kill is a rare offensive threat, and the team is also shutting down the opposition in that situation, as Arizona is killing off a league-best 91.
