Here is the 2016 Arizona Coyotes Qualifying Tournament in its entirety.

The 3rd-seeded ’11-’12 Phoenix Coyotes join the short list of teams that will be representing their franchise in all three Ultimate NHL Playoffs. After needing to win in seven games in the Semifinal, they took the Final over the 5th-seeded ’10-’11 Phoenix Coyotes in five games. The series also started with an overtime winner and it was from Antoine Vermette for the ’11-’12 Yotes in the second overtime period. Vermette’s goal won it 3-2 for the eventual champs and was his second point of the game. In Game 2, thanks to a couple of goals from Ray Whitney, the ’11-’12 Coyotes led 4-1 in the final 10 minutes of regulation. However, the ’10-’11 Coyotes were able to claw to within one, but goaltender Mike Smith was able to shut the door. Lauri Korpikoski scored twice for the ’10-’11 Coyotes in the loss. Smith backstopped the ’11-’12 Coyotes to a 2-0 win in Game 3 with a 37-save shutout performance. Goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov had a good night himself, stopped 45 of 47 shots against. The ’10-’11 Coyotes took Game 4 by a score of 6-2 for their only win in the series. Whitney led them offensively with a four-point night (1G, 3A) while three others posting multi-point games. Then, in Game 5, Kyle Turris ended the series, obviously, with his OT goal three and a half minutes into overtime. It was his second goal of the game while both Whitney and Radim Vrbata posted multi-point efforts in the win.
