No, Joel, it's game four.



Fast Facts:

- Mike Smith put together another great game for the Coyotes and has been the reason why they’re up a game. The team has played great in front of him but there’s no way they win a game to this point without the way he has played.

- Corey Crawford has played good hockey for the majority of this series but was exposed on the Boedker game winner. I’ll be interested to see how he rebounds from the weak goal.

Mike Smith this series: 2-1-0; 2.25 GAA; .939 SV%
Corey Crawford this series: 1-2-0; 2.57 GAA; .911 SV%

- Marian Hossa is obviously the big name out of the lineup tonight after the hit from Raffi Torres. Martin Hanzal and Lauri Korpikoski are both out for the Coyotes tonight. Steve Montador stays out for the Blackhawks. Torres and Andrew Shaw are both out due to suspension.
