Phoenix comes back to beat the Kings, 5-4 SO

The Coyotes have been hot recently and it was only a matter of time till they would cool down, right? Wrong. Even though it seemed as if their unbeaten streak would come to an end as the visiting LA Kings shot out to a quick 3-0 lead in the first period, Phoenix answered with three goals of their own in the second period. With 2:27 left in the hockey game, Radim Vrbata would score his 30th goal of the season and give Phoenix a chance to win in OT. Neither team would score in the OT period, leading to a shootout. Phoenix would win the SO 2-1, giving them two points instead of one and a win over the rival Kings.
