After the first period, I was convinced that the Coyotes wouldn’t be
able to sustain their lead, especially with the way the Red Wings were
dictating play.

Yet it’s the power play of both teams that has
made the difference: the Coyotes ability to take advantage and the Red
Wings futility with the man advantage in the first period.

Mathieu
Schneider and Radim Vrbata both have power play goals for the Coyotes
in the first period, with Schneider doing exactly what he was brought in
to do: unleash booming shots from the point.

Brad Stuart was able
to get the Red Wings on the board with a nifty wrist shot that came
right after a bad turnover by the Coyotes, but so far in the second
period it’s been Phoenix with the upper hand.
