Hill stopped 24 of 27 shots in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Hurricanes. The 22-year-old kept Carolina off the board through the first period but eventually got beaten, and with Arizona giving him no offensive support Hill had no margin for error. He's now lost three of his last four starts, allowing at least three goals in each, and he'll likely remain in a timeshare with Darcy Kuemper unless one of them begins to heat up.
Hill stopped 27 of 30 shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Rangers. The 22-year-old endured a tough start in this one, allowing three power-play goals in a little over one period on the first 15 shots he faced to put the Coyotes in a 3-0 hole, but Hill shook it off and shut down the Rangers offense to give his teammates a chance to come back. He's now 5-2-0 in six starts with a .932 save percentage, and with Antti Raanta (lower body) facing an uncertain return date, Hill figures to get a long look as Arizona's No. 1 goaltender as long as he's delivering efforts like this.
Hill will guard the cage in Friday's road game against the Rangers. Hill has struggled a bit recently, suffering back-to-back home losses to the Capitals and Sharks while posting a subpar 3.58 GAA and .883 save percentage over that span. The 22-year-old netminder will look to get back on track and pick up his fifth victory of the campaign in a tough road matchup with a Rangers team that's 10-4-1 at home this season.
Hill allowed four goals on 32 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Sharks on Saturday. Well, Hill's magical run to begin the season is done. After posting a .977 save percentage in his first five appearances, Hill has yielded seven goals in his last two starts. Still, Hill's stat line is impressive. He is 4-2-0 with a .939 save percentage and a 1.62 GAA. Don't be surprised if the rookie netminder gets another start for the Coyotes soon.
Hill will start between the pipes in Saturday's home game against the Sharks, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports. Hill finally looked human in his last start Thursday against the Capitals, surrendering three goals on 28 shots en route to his first loss in five starts. The rookie netminder will look to bounce back and pick up his fifth victory of the season in a home matchup with a Sharks team that's averaging 2.63 goals per game on the road this campaign, 21st in the NHL.
