A must-win for the Coyotes, against a red-hot Kings team [NHL Western Conference Finals Game 3 Live Thread]
The Coyotes are taking stupid penalties they weren't taking in the regular season. They've slid into a scoring slump (although, it's hard not to against the defensive stylings of the Kings). Even though it's only game 3 of this series, it's arguably a "must-win" game for Phoenix.
The Kings are on fire at the right time, and the Coyotes have cooled off at the wrong time.
The good news for Los Angeles? They're playing at Staples, and the crowd will be insane.
