Wild @ Hawks: Chicago keeps the streak alive wrap up

New, comments

Hey, the Wild were apart of history tonight. Not in a good way, but still

Jonathan Daniel

Not a whole lot to say after tonight's game. It would have been nice to have the Wild walk out of the United Center with at least one point, but alas that was not in the cards. The Hawks played like they were the best team in the league, which they obviously are.

Devin Setoguchi got Minnesota on the scoreboard first, but then Chicago fired back with a goal by Brandon Saad. Brian Bickell scored two in row, and Marian Hossa scored towards the end of the period to round out the 1st period. No one scored in the 2nd, but Ryan Suter scored his first of the year (and a PPG) in the 3rd. Kyle Brodziak made it a one goal game, but Patrick Kane put the nail in the coffin to make the final score 5-3

Don't be too depressed Wilderness. There were some bright spots, and it's only one game. So let's focus on the good, and step away from the ledge (again).

Good things-

  • PK is still awesome. 95% in the last 10 games, and before this game the Wild had the 5th best PK in the league and it should go up now
  • As horrible as the PP has been, the Wild actually scored a PP goal on a team who's PK is about as good, if not better, than the Wilds
  • Wild don't have a game until Saturday, so they should be well rested for Nashville
  • Darcy Kuemper had a really great game after he relieved Niklas Backstrom

Five Questions:

  1. Can the Wild end "The Streak?" They tried, but not tonight
  2. Does playing an NHL team slow the Wild down? Oh man did it ever. The Wild were consistently chasing the Hawks
  3. Is tonight the night Ryan Suter or Jonas Brodin score? Ryan Suter scores his first goal in a Wild jersey
  4. The Hawks are good. But are they real and not animatronic robots? I think robots. Have you SEEN Toews-face?
  5. Who own da Chiefs? Your momma?
