The lack of discipline has hurt the Phoenix Coyotes all series long, and that’s apparently going to continue into Game 4. Ray Whitney took a hit from Slava Voynov along the boards in the Kings end of the ice, and the hit didn’t please Whitney all that much.
He grabbed Voynov in a head lock and while it appeared as though the officials were going to let it go initially, he held on far too long and was whistled for a deserved roughing penalty.
Not the start Phoenix needed. A veteran like Whitney — who’s played more playoff games than anybody in a white jersey today — should know better.
