Will the Phoenix Coyotes Get Their First Playoff Series Victory?

The Phoenix Coyotes beat the Chicago Blackhawks in overtime last night, marking the team's third win in the opening round, all of them coming in overtime.

For the second time this series, Mikkel Boedker scored the game-winner for the Coyotes.

Now, the Coyotes are one win away from winning the first playoff series since the team packed it up and moved to Phoenix in 1996.

Going back to the Winnipeg days, the franchise hasn't won a playoff series since 1987.

The Jets were swept in four games after advancing to the second round that year by the Edmonton Oilers, who went on to win the Stanley Cup.

Up three games to one this time around, the Coyotes can close out the series with a victory at home tomorrow night.

Can the Coyotes get that fourth win in this playoff series?
