Pyatt, Vermette Put Coyotes In Front 2-1 After Two

Now THIS is a good sign for Coyotes fans. With a 2-1 lead going into the third period, Phoenix is 33-1 in games this season when leading after two.

Taylor Pyatt culminated a series of shots on Chicago goalie Corey Crawford with a goal at 7:38 of the period. The Coyotes really cranked it up on offense and defense in the second period and their effort paid off.

At one point, two Coyotes had lost their sticks but still stayed strong in protection of their goal, and the situation didn't cost them.

Phoenix actually had a two-man advantage after penalties, but couldn't cash in. They did, however, take the lead at the 2:33 mark when Antoine Vermette, who arrived late in the season in a trade with Columbus, blasted a wrist shot past Crawford that was so fast it had to be seen live to be truly appreciated.

Now the sellout crowd of 17,138 will see if these Coyotes can hang onto a lead once again and take Game 1 of this series.
