Entering the third period trailing 3-1, Phoenix tied the score by netting goals 13 seconds apart.

Upshall made the score 3-2 when he took a pass from Shane Doan and knocked it past Theodore at 4:44 of the third period. Yandle tied the score at 3 when he knocked in the rebound of Vernon Fiddler's shot at 4:57, prompting Minnesota coach Todd Richards to take his timeout.

Burns gave Minnesota a 4-3 lead with his 12th goal of the season at 11:14, but Jovanovski tied the score for Phoenix about three minutes later with a goal he punctuated with a dive over Theodore.

"We've got to keep working at it. Obviously we're doing some good things in the game but we're also shooting ourselves in the foot time
after time."
"It's been an emotional roller coaster of late. We get down and then we get back and take the lead. Then we kind of went sideways. There
was a couple of unfortunate bounces. We'll take the point and try to get better."
"I think we have a pretty good group of guys here. But we can't afford to slip because the West is so tight. We're disappointed we didn't get both points."
