(Sports Network) - The Phoenix Coyotes will shoot for their longest winning streak in nearly five years, as they visit the Chicago Blackhawks this afternoon at the United Center.

The Coyotes have taken five in a row for the first time since the 2003-04 campaign and are one victory away from posting the club's first six-game winning streak since March 3-15, 2002.

The last three wins in Phoenix's run have come at the start of a five-game road trip. The latest triumph came in dramatic fashion Friday in Atlanta, as Yanic Perreault's breakaway goal with 2:29 left in overtime lifted the Coyotes to a 5-4 at Philips Arena.

Shane Doan scored twice and Perreault added a key assist for Phoenix. Perreault has registered a point in six straight games and has four goals and five helpers during the tear.

Owen Nolan and Ladislav Nagy also tallied, and Curtis Joseph escaped with another win despite making just 18 saves.

The victory improved Phoenix to 7-12-1 as the visiting team this year.

The Blackhawks, meanwhile, have been on the losing end in two straight and four of their last five contests. They were handed a lopsided loss by visiting Nashville on Friday, as Scott Hartnell scored two goals and Paul Kariya had a four-point night with a goal and three assists to lead the Predators to an 8-3 rout.
