First-period wrap: Hawks 0, Coyotes 0

By Jesse Rogers

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Chicago Blackhawks and Phoenix Coyotes are scoreless after the first period of Game 5 at Jobing.com arena.

The Hawks outshot and outchanced the Coyotes in the opening 20 minutes, but back-to-back power plays produced little besides a couple of easy chances which Mike Smith stopped.

The visitors wasted 15 seconds of 5-on-3 time by losing the face-off and having to retrieve the puck in their own zone.

Phoenix also had a power-play chance but didn’t manage much in terms of scoring chances and finished with just four total shots on net. The Hawks had 12 and had the puck more on their stick than their opponent.
