The Chicago Blackhawks entered the third period of Game 3 against the Phoenix Coyotes with a 1-0 lead, but nearly midway through the period there was a flurry of activity around both nets that resulted in a total of three goals scored in a span of 65 seconds. The two teams head to overtime in a 2-2 tie.
Phoenix's Rostislav Klesla scored at 8:16 in the period, but just 33 seconds later Michael Frolik countered with a goal of his own to temporarily put the Blackhawks back in the lead. Ray Whitney scored the equalizer 32 seconds later.
Whitney found himself perfectly placed for the goal here. With the puck making its way down the ice and eventually to the left wing at the boards, the puck moved across the ice with Whitney able to pick it up in front of the net. Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford was out of place on the sequence and let the puck go in for a goal.
This series heads to overtime for the third straight game.
