Déjà Vu: Coyotes Up 1-0 Entering Third Period After Converting On Power Play

Oliver Ekman-Larrson fired in a shot from the point past Corey Crawford on the power play to give the Coyotes a 1-0 lead despite being severely outplayed.

The penalty that led to the goal was on the Blackhawks' hero of Game 5, Jonathan Toews, who was called for interference.

Daymond Langkow took a penalty at 18:24 of the period and Chicago will have a power play to start the third period.

Klesla has returned to the game after taking a butt end of a stick to the eye in the first period. Klesla is wearing a full cage to protect his injured eye, which has already began to swell and turn black and blue. Hopefully Klesla can remain effective with only one working eye.

The Coyotes are still being historically outshot, but looked slightly better in the second period. The Coyotes have tested Crawford with just six shots, while on the other end Mike Smith has been putting on a clinic stopping all 27 shots he has faced.

It only takes one goal to win though. Can the Coyotes hold up for one more period and put an end to the Blackhawks' season?
