Mikkel Boedker scored at 13:15 of overtime as visiting Phoenix reclaimed home-ice advantage and seized a 2-1 lead in its Western Conference quarterfinal series against Chicago with a 3-2 victory Tuesday.

Boedker scored on a seemingly harmless shot from a sharp angle along the goal line that snuck past Corey Crawford in the third straight overtime contest in the series.

Rostislav Klesla and Ray Whitney also scored for the Coyotes and Mike Smith made 35 saves to hand the Blackhawks only their second loss in the last nine home playoff games.

Andrew Brunette and Michael Frolik scored for Chicago, which lost star forward Marian Hossa in the first period on a brutal shoulder-to-head hit by Raffi Torres, who launched himself off his skates into Chicago's leading scorer during the regular season.

Game 4 is Thursday night in Chicago.

The Blackhawks carried a 1-0 lead into the third, but the teams combined for three goals in a 65-second span while playing 4-on-4.

Klesla beat Crawford with a slapper at 8:16, but Frolik - in the lineup because of rookie Andrew Shaw's suspension - backhanded a rebound past Smith 33 seconds later for his first goal since Dec. 14 and a 2-1 Chicago lead.

Phoenix responded 32 seconds later when Whitney converted a rebound for his 20th career postseason tally at 9:21, setting up a third overtime in as many games - the fifth time that's happened to start a series in league history.

Chicago, which scored at the end of regulation to force overtime in each of the first two games, got a last-minute goal in the first period to open the scoring.

Patrick Kane wristed a shot from the top of the right faceoff circle that Brunette tipped past Smith with 28.4 seconds left in the period.
