Blackhawks Vs. Coyotes Final Score: Chicago Falls To Phoenix In A Shootout

The Chicago Blackhawks and Coyotes battled to a scoreless third period on Monday at the United Center before Phoenix buried its first two shootout chances to earn the victory. Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa were both denied by Phoenix goalie Mike Smith to secure a 4-3 win for the Coyotes.

The Blackhawks once trailed 3-0, so escaping with a point serves as a very real silver lining. Without the efforts of the captain Toews, Chicago would likely be headed home empty-handed. Toews has been on a tear as of late and he continued his hot streak on Monday. Down 3-0, Toews scored two goals (his 16th and 17th goals of the season) and helped set-up Patrick Kane to knot the game at three.

The 'Hawks out-shot Phoenix 35-27 and dominated faceoffs 32-18.

Chicago pulled starting goalie Corey Crawford after Keith Yandle's goal made it 3-0 Phoenix. Backup Ray Emery did not allow a goal until the shootout.

Blackhawks Vs. Coyotes Score Update: Three Chicago Goals In The Second Ties Game At Three

The Chicago Blackhawks entered the second period against the Phoenix Coyotes down 2-0, but a furious rally has them tied at 3-3 with the third period looming. After Chicago pulled starting goalie Corey Crawford in favor of Ray Emery following Keith Yandle's third goal of the season (off an assist from Mikkel Boedker) to put the Coyotes up 3-0, the Blackhawks responded with three unanswered goals. 

Of course, Jonathan Toews -- who could be playing the best hockey of his career -- left his fingerprints all over the period, earning a point on each goal. Toews' 16th goal of the season was the Blackhawks' first of the game, and it came off feeds from Patrick Kane, Daniel Carcillo. Toews scored again  halfway through the period on a power play goal set up by Duncan Keith and Patrick Sharp.

Patrick Kane scored the final goal of the period to even the game at three. It came off assists from Toews and Viktor Stalberg.
