The Red Wings-Coyotes series has been among the best of the playoffs so far, no doubt about it. NBC is carrying the series’ debut in the Motor City at 3:00 pm ET today. To get you revved up, we’re providing plenty of coverage, a live chat during the game and more. If your appetites are not yet satiated, how about we provide what the rest of the Internet is saying? What the Coyotes bloggers and newspapers are saying

I discussed “nice guy” Shane Doan earlier, but here’s a few newspaper stories about him. There’s the glowing piece from the Arizona Republic, the Slam! story, Puck Daddy’s “Doan Face” intro and one Detroit-based Doan good guy story just for taste.

How the Coyotes took advantage of their “strong belief system” to make the playoffs.

Super famous blogger Travis Hair of Five for Howling brings a typically stout game preview effort.

“For Now, The Coyotes know where they are.”

Today will be the Coyotes’ national TV debut (for this season, obviously).

Finally, Ilya Bryzgalov will not let a rough performance get to his head in Game 3. Allegedly.

What the Red Wings bloggers and newspapers are saying

Winging it in Motown provides a great breakdown of what the Red Wings need to continue to do (and what they need to avoid) to win at home today.

Chris Osgood is apparently handling his “wing man” duties pretty well in Detroit. Also from The Detroit Free Press: after a physical Game 1, the Red Wings responded more forcefully to the Coyotes.

Jiri Hudler might, indeed, be free to return to the Red Wings next season.
