The Phoenix Coyotes hold a 3-1 series lead and hope to put the Nashville Predators away in game five. They'll have to do so without Rostislav Klesla, whose hit on Nashville forward Matt Halischuk earned him a one game suspension. The game starts at 7pm PST.

The 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs continue Monday as the Phoenix Coyotes play host to the Nashville Predators, hoping to deal their guests another defeat. The Coyotes hold a 3-1 series lead, so a victory will put away the Predators and send Phoenix on to face the Kings in the conference finals. The Coyotes will have to play without defenseman Rostislav Klesla, who was suspended one game for his hit on Nashville forward Matt Halischuk in the Coyotes' game four victory. Mike Smith was spectacular in that slim victory and he'll need to be so again in game five.

Start Time: The puck drops at 7:00pm PST, 10:00pm EST.

Television Coverage: Catch the game on NBC Sports Network (National), and TSN (Canada).
