Well, the third round of this year's Stanley Cup playoffs got underway last night, and the drama continued.
Buoyed by two uncharacteristically bad goals against L.A.'s Jonathan Quick, the Coyotes had more life against the Kings than they probably should have.
L.A. was dominated pretty much all night, as their potent offense made things difficult for Phoenix.
The Kings took the decision 4-2 and grabbed home ice advantage in the process. So it this going to be the longest short series in the world, for the 'Yotes? Or do Mike Smith and co. have enough to give the Kings a challenge.
My money is on the Kings to go all the way, but I wouldn't count the 'Yotes out too soon.
