Hill stopped 44 of 48 shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Sharks. The Coyotes and Sharks engaged in a back-and-forth game, but it could have been much worse for the visitors had Hill not been so sharp in goal. The 24-year-old set a career high for saves in one game Saturday. He finished the campaign with a 9-9-1 record, a 2.74 GAA and a .913 save percentage in 19 appearances, which is the most work he's seen in one season. With Antti Raanta (upper body) set for unrestricted free agency, Hill may slot in as the Coyotes' No. 2 goalie next season.
Hill will protect the road goal Saturday in San Jose, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports. Darcy Kuemper picked up a 5-2 win over the Sharks on Friday, and Hill will complete the back-to-back in the season finale Saturday. Hill has lost five of his last six starts with a 2.69 GAA and a .912 save percentage in that span.
Hill gave up three goals on 21 shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Kings. The fourth goal was an empty-netter. Hill gave up a pair in the first period, then locked in during the second. His one mistake in the third was Gabriel Vilardi's second goal of the game, which was enough to send Hill to the loss. The 24-year-old goalie has an 8-9-1 record with a 2.67 GAA and a .913 save percentage in 18 appearances. The Coyotes' playoff hopes ended with Wednesday's loss, so there's a chance Hill could get another start either Friday or Saturday versus the Sharks.
Hill will patrol the crease during Wednesday's home matchup with the Kings, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports. Hill was unbeatable in his last start Friday versus Vegas, stopping all 25 shots he faced en route to his eighth win and second shutout of the season. The 24-year-old goaltender will attempt to earn a second straight victory in a home matchup with an LA squad that's averaging 2.60 goals per game on the road this year, 20th in the NHL.
Hill recorded 25 saves in a 3-0 shutout win over the Golden Knights on Friday. Hill was locked in from the start, and he was able to keep the Golden Knights' offense silent throughout the game. The 24-year-old has two shutouts this year and three in his career. He improved to 8-8-1 with a 2.65 GAA and a .915 save percentage in 17 outings. Hill is unlikely to start back-to-back games -- Darcy Kuemper will likely get the nod for Saturday's rematch with the Golden Knights.
