So close has the series between the Phoenix Coyotes and Chicago Blackhawks been that one little bounce of the puck, one fumble along the boards or one faceoff win can be the difference between celebrating a victory and swallowing a loss.
Five straight games have been decided in overtime and who would dare say it won't go to six when the teams meet again Monday night with the Coyotes leading 3-2.
It's so even and unpredictable that both teams have triumphed twice on the road with Chicago's 2-1 victory Saturday night in Glendale, Ariz., sending the series back to the United Center.
''We're going home, which is going to be good, and try to get a lift from the fans and try to get a big win,'' Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook said after Game 5.
''We got to push it to the seventh and try to come back here, but at the same time we're not looking too far past the next game, we got to come out with a good start and play a full 60.''
