St. Paul, MN (WDAY TV) - The Minnesota Wild find themselves in the exact spot that they were two weeks ago, down two games to none in a series and coming home.
The main difference this time around is the caliber of opponent.
The Blackhawks have dominated this series, not allowing the Wild to score in the first two periods in either game.
An even bigger problem for Minnesota is that their top two lines have disappeared; no scoring from anyone up front has Mike Yeo's team in a precarious spot.
Dany Heatley/ Wild Forward: “Every series, every team as you go through this playoff run it's going to get tougher, Chicago is a great team, both of those games, we felt we're in both of them, had a chance to win, lot of things have to do better and we know that.”
Charlie Coyle/ Wild Forward: “End of the year now, it's playoff time, get our energy up, and we know we still have it, prove it and show it, we have the team to do it, did it last series, starts with the next one.”
The next one comes Tuesday night in St. Paul at 8, despite struggles; Mike Yeo says Ilya Bryzgalov will start in net.
