In the zoo package there is an example of a graph with an axis on
the left and on the right in the examples section of ?plot.zoo.  Run
that with but use ylab = "" on the plot call to make room for the third axis.

To add a third axis supposing 1 - 15 is the range of our third time series:

usr <- par("usr")
opar <- par(usr = c(usr[1:2], c(1, 15)))
axis(2, pos = usr[1] - diff(usr[1:2])/12, col = "green")
