Minnesota Wild Shut Out Chicago 4 to 0, Wild Are Back In It

The Minnesota Wild were facing a must win. Win, they are back in the series, lose and they could be eliminated the next night at home. There was no scoring in the first or second periods, but the Wild were slowly shifting the power.

When Minnesota came back out of the locker room for the third period, the tide had changed. The Wild kept the puck in the Chicago end just about the whole third period when finally Minnesota scored. Erik Haula and Mikael Granlund scored goals less than 3 minutes apart. Then Parise added a power play goal, and the Wild put an open netter in later.

Ilya Bryzgalov made 19 saves for his first shutout in the playoffs in eight years, and the Blackhawks had their lead whittled to 2-1 with their first loss in 2 1/2 weeks.

The two teams meet again in Minnesota on Friday.
