Regular season[edit]

  • January 8, 2003: Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Michael Leighton earned a shutout in his NHL debut in a 0–0 tie against the Phoenix Coyotes. Coyotes goaltender Zac Bierk earned his first career shutout, although it was not his NHL debut. It was the first time that two goaltenders in the same game both earned their first career shutouts.[1]

The Coyotes finished the regular season having allowed the most power-play goals of all 30 NHL teams, with 77.[2]
