I feel that whoever wins tonight will win the series (obviously I know we can finish them tonight). I know they are ‘professionals’ but all of these late game tying goals have got to be an emotional burden on the team.

I don't feel confident. I thought we had our chance and just couldn't hold on.

The series sort of feels to me as though after 5 close games we're due for a laugher tonight, and I really don't see us winning in a laugher. Yotes have had a problem holding one-goal leads in the third period all year, and it finally has gotten the better of them. They've blown 4 of 4 so far, and Saturday's was just too expensive.

I want to believe. I really do. But I just can't see closing the deal on this one -- the team that was out there in the third period on Saturday looked completely out of gas and mentally beaten. They also looked tighter than a drum. I think the last three years are just weighing so heavily on this team that they are leaving pressure marks on their sticks from gripping them so tight. Chicago is not a stranger to this circumstance and they have that magical feeling that no matter what they are never out of the game.

Here's what I tell myself -- even if the Yotes are only 35/65 to with both games, that still means the odds of winning at least one are 60/40! I guess I just to have to look at it that way, but I'm having trouble. Sorry not to have faith guys. I just think the notion that on Thursday morning we'll be talking about 0 for 10 in close out situations in the desert seems probable at this point. We had our chance and we couldn't take advantage.

Losing one hard fought overtime game is a lot different than losing 3 in a row.

Anyone here feel good about our chances before game 3 after the way game 2 ended? I didn't.

We are gonna win this series. I'm not sure how or if it will happen tonight or Wednesday...but we will win it.

Yes. I believe we have this tonight. We looked awful in game 5 saturday and it was still a close game. Its not like we got slaughtered out there. I believe we will respond.

If the regular season games were any indication, it would be a heck of a west final between the two teams.

If it means anything, sportsbook.com seems to like our chances more than both Ottawa and Florida, both of whom are also up 3-2.

Don't get all the gloom and doom. We had one bad game. It happens. We have two games to get it done.

Jets fan coming in peace

The Jets 1.0 /Coyotes franchise are 0-13 when in a position to win a series since 1990

I am guessing this 22 year slump is due to be broken

What a moron. What this guy should have said is, "we have Mike Smith and they don't." QED.

Attended a guest lecture by President Crow for extra credit and missed the first period. A sign of things to come, I guess.
