Wild Fall Again to Blackhawks, Find Themselves in a Familiar 2-0 Series Hole
The Minnesota Wild once again find themselves heading back to Xcel Energy Center down 2-0 in a playoff series, while the Chicago Blackhawks won their sixth consecutive playoff game.
Just like their first game, Chicago scored the first two goals of the game, but unlike the first game the Wild weren’t able to get any closer than 2-1. Chicago won 4-1, with their final goal scoring on a Wild empty net.
The Wild face another must win game Tuesday night in St. Paul, but Chicago is a much better team than Colorado so they must fire on all cylinders and get a couple breaks to pose a serious threat in the series.
