NHL Playoffs 2012, Kings Vs. Coyotes: Fans React To Big Win

The Phoenix Coyotes had their backs against the wall on Sunday afternoon in their Western Conference final series with the Los Angeles Kings. The Yotes entered Game 4 down 3-0 in the best-of-seven series and knew they would be headed home for good with a loss. They buckled down and picked up a 2-0 win in L.A. to keep their season alive for at least one more game.

Carl Putnam at Five For Howling Has this to say about the crucial win:

The Coyotes will look to build on the improvements they made on Sunday when they face the Kings in Game 5. The game will be played Tuesday back in Glendale at 6 p.m. MST. If Phoenix can stay aggressive while spending less time in the box maybe they can truly climb back into the series. Expect the Kings to come out hitting anything that moves Tuesday night, especially guys like Justin Williams and Dustin Brown.

The Coyotes still have an extremely difficult and improbable road ahead of them if they hope to reach the Stanley Cup final, but fans shouldn't abandon all hope.
