The Blackhawks-Coyotes series shifts to Chicago on Tuesday night.
This series has not been short on late-game dramatics so far, as the Blackhawks have tied the score in the final minute of the third period and forced overtime in each of the first two games. Phoenix took Game 1 in sudden death, and the Blackhawks answered with a win in Game 2.
And that brings these two teams to a pivotal Game 3. Chicago has taken home ice advantage away from Phoenix, and if the Blackhawks can take care of business at the United Center on Tuesday night, it'll be a big step toward taking control of the series.
Game Date & Time: Tuesday, April 17,
TV: CNBC, CSN-Chicago
Series: Tied 1-1
