Wild Fall To Blackhawks Sunday In Chicago
The Minnesota Wild fell 4-1 to the Chicago Blackhawks Sunday night at the United Center and now trail their second round playoff series 2-0.
After a scoreless first period, Chicago's dynamic duo of Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane each notched goals in the second period to give their team a 2-0 lead. Toews goal came short-handed.
Matt Dumba cut the lead in half with a power play goal early in the third period, making the score 2-1. However, that was all the offense the Wild could muster. Patrick Sharp scored with just over 12 minutes remaining and Kane striking late into the empty net.
Game three is scheduled for Tuesday night in St. Paul.
