The Minnesota Wild came up just short in a 2-1 loss last night in Chicago, giving the Blackhawks a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series; putting the Wild on the brink of elimination. Game six is tomorrow night back in St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center.

Erik Haula’s first period goal for the Wild gave Minnesota the early lead, but wouldn’t be enough as Chicago scored in the second and added another in the third for the win. The home team has won each of the five games in this series, and Chicago improved to 6-0 at home this postseason. The Wild are 5-0 at home, hoping to make it 6-0 tomorrow night.

A win by the Wild tomorrow night would force a Game 7 Thursday night back in Chicago. A win by the Blackhawks tomorrow night would eliminate Minnesota from the playoffs.

The Game 6 puck will drop at the Xcel Energy Center tomorrow night at 8:00 pm CT on CNBC and AM 1390 The Fan.

Let’s Go Wild!
