After having a strong first period, the Chicago Blackhawks stumbled a bit in the second period of Thursday's game against the Phoenix Coyotes. Going into the third period of Game 1 of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Blackhawks are trailing 2-1 on the road to Phoenix.
The Blackhawks led 1-0 early in the first period and held that lead for a while, but the Coyotes got a pair of goals in the second period to take the lead. Phoenix's first goal came roughly seven minutes into the period by Taylor Pyatt, a goal that actually came while the Coyotes had an extra man on the ice:
Following that, Phoenix's Antoine Vermette scored a goal to give Phoenix the lead.
Now, the Blackhawks will have to come from behind on the road to pull off a victory in Game 1. After being outshot 13-8 in the second period, they'll have to turn the tides early in the third.
