The Chicago Blackhawks had their backs against the wall in the third period of Game 5 of their Western Conference Quarterfinals series. Then Nick Leddy equalized for them against the Phoenix Coyotes, and the Blackhawks held on until overtime, prolonging the potentially decisive game of the best-of-seven series.
The Blackhawks have kept up the pressure on Smith all night, barraging him with 34 shots; Corey Crawford, on the other hand, has seen just 18.
But neither team has had any luck on the power play: both have gone 0-for-4 with a man advantage, and Phoenix has squandered all four power plays given to it by Viktor Stalberg.
The two teams will now head to their fifth overtime game in the series, marking the first time since 1951 that all five games of a series have not been decided in regulation.
