The Phoenix Coyotes hold a 3-1 lead over the Chicago Blackhawks in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. They'll try to clinch on home ice on Saturday night.

The Phoenix Coyotes entered the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs as the Pacific Division champions and the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference. Despite that, they were perceived as big underdogs in the opening-round series against the No. 6 Chicago Blackhawks. The Coyotes are making a strong statement that they're for real, however, as they currently hold a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven series and are just one win from advancing.

Every game in the series has gone to overtime; on Saturday, the Coyotes return to Arizona with a chance to clinch the series on home ice. The Blackhawks will do everything in their power to keep the series alive and earn at least one more game in Chicago.
