Game Three-- Coyotes and Blackhawks, April 17 2012

The madhouse on Madison beckons for the Phoenix Coyotes, unaccustomed as they perhaps are to the noise and atmosphere that a Blackhawks home playoff game may bring.

The Coyotes, who no doubt were glad to see a few more of their fellow Arizonans find their way to their rink for games one and two, will have to find a way to work through the first few minutes of life at the United Centre, an experience that has left many a team just a little rattled upon an appearance.

With the series tied at one win each, the Hawks will be looking to make the best of their home situation to grab the lead and hold it through games three and four in the Windy City, should that potential destiny come to pass, the Coyotes may find that their early success in this years playoff round was rather fleeting.

Bring on the noise, when Chicago gets behind its teams there's really not much in the world to compare.

Game Three-- Phoenix 3 at Chicago  2 (OT)
