The Minnesota Wild lost the second round opener 5-2 last night in Chicago -- giving the Blackhawks an early 1-0 series lead. Game 2 of the series is tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 pm CT in Chicago, and can be seen on NBC (KARE-11), and heard on AM 1390 The Fan

The Wild outshot the Blackhawks, 32-22, becoming just the second team to outshoot Chicago by 10 shots in a playoff game at the United Center since 2002. It wasn’t the effort or result they wanted, but that’s the good thing about a seven-game series; the Wild will get another chance.
