1 - Bryan Bickell

Bickell scored on the power play to give the Hawks' a 1-0 lead and also the game-winner in overtime. The 6-4 power forward had four shots on goal. "The puck was finding me tonight, and it was exciting to get the goal to get the team the win," Bickell said.

2 - Antoine Vermette

The Coyotes forward nearly had the game-winner until Patrick Sharp was able to tip in Brent Seabrook's point shot with 5.5 seconds left to force overtime. Vermette had two goals in Game 2 and now has three this series.

3 - Corey Crawford

Coyotes goalie Mike Smith may have seen more shots, but Crawford was stellar late in the third and in overtime for the Hawks. He kept it a one-goal game when the Coyotes had plenty of quality chances and essentially allowing the Hawks to tie it in the final seconds. He made 30 saves.
