Fresh off winning the first division title in their franchise's history, the Phoenix Coyotes will open their playoff campaign against Chicago Thursday night at Jobing.com Arena.

The Coyotes and Blackhawks will face off in Game 1 at 10 ET. The Game will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network in the U.S. and TSN in Canada.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
