This game was unbelievable and disgusting. Unbelievable because the D-backs reliable reliever, JJ Putz, blew a save and a one-run cushion in the middle of a rainstorm with two outs. Disgusting because my dad called the walk-off shot. Old reliable for the Rockies delivered on a miracle two-run shot that fought the wind to sneak in for a homer. This is the second night in a row that a D-back reliever lost the game, which is odd and concerning given that the Snakes were supposed to have a solid Bull-pen. I guess both my old man and the Rockies' old man have some game left in them.
This game was almost exactly like the game two nights before. Chicago out shot the Coyotes, yet the Coyotes held the lead for most of the game. That is until a Patrick Sharp shot snuck past goalie Mike Smith to tie the game with only 6 seconds remaining. This forced OT, but the outcome was different. 10:36 into the OT period, the Coyotes committed a crucial turnover right in front of their own net, leading to a quick, easy goal by Bryan Bickell, sending the series to Chicago, tied.
