For the Phoenix Coyotes, the toughest part was getting to this point.

With the future of the club hanging in the balance the entire season, the Coyotes defied the odds by finishing in fourth place in the Western Conference to clinch their first playoff berth since 2002.

Now that they're here, what lies ahead for the amazing Coyotes?

Can Phoenix build on its strong regular season and upend Detroit in the first round of the playoffs? Do they stand a chance against the experienced Red Wings? Or is the clock about to strike midnight on the Cinderella Coyotes?
