The Chicago Blackhawks climbed back from a far 0-2 deficit in Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Phoenix Coyotes.  It wasn’t enough, however, to sustain the pressures of a run-and-gun Coyotes turnover in overtime. Here’s what happened just minutes into overtime when the Blackhawks carried puck possession deep into the Phoenix zone: Several problems occurred in this instance. First, there was the offensive alignment. Chicago simply had its men too far to handle a bad bounce. And, when it happened, Jonathan Toews was nowhere to be found. He gave chase, but was two strides behind the rush of Mikkel Boedker. And, as for defense, it was up to Nick Leddy to cover Boedker’s breakout. Leddy positional advantage didn’t pay dividend.
