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.
