The Phoenix Coyotes weren't able to take advantage of any of the power play opportunities that the Colorado Avalanche gave to them, but they still managed to tie the game up at 2 after two periods on Thursday night. Colorado had a distinct shot advantage in the period but couldn't capitalize.
Throughout the second period, it was Colorado getting shots on Phoenix goalie Jason LaBarbera. But nearly 18 minutes in, Phoenix's Mikkel Boedker scored his second goal of the game to tie things up. The only goal scorer for the Coyotes so far, Boedker's now scored his sixth and seventh goals of the season on Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov.
Colorado had a 16-to-9 advantage in shots on goal in the second period, and they've had 15 more shots on goal than Phoenix over the course of the entire game. Neither team has scored on the power play yet.
