The Phoenix Coyotes did not have a good third period. It resulted in a game-tying goal late by Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook in the final minute, but the home team quickly responded once overtime began.
The Coyotes controlled the extra frame, possessing the puck in the Blackhawks zone for a large portion of OT, and 9:29 in, Martin Hanzal made it all pay off.
It was a strong keep at the blue line off the faceoff by Adrian Aucoin. Hanzal won the faceoff and made a dash for the net, and when Aucoin sent the puck towards Corey Crawford's crease, it was a simple deflection by Hanzal that gave Phoenix the 1-0 series lead.
