St. Paul, MN (WDAY TV) - The Minnesota Wild found themselves in a familiar spot for Game 3 of their best of seven series with the Blackhawks, down two games to none for the third straight playoff series.

But there's been something magical about Game 3s.

With Minnesota, they have won their last three and all of those games went overtime, the X rocking again tonight.

The Wild came out flying in the first period, Erik Haula came in on a breakaway, but the puck comes off his stick.

Third straight game Minnesota did not score in the first two periods.

Finally the Wild break thru in the 3rd, great passing by Justin Fontaine sets up Haula, who knocks it in out of mid-air!

1-0 Minnesota.

Less than 3 minutes later, home team on the attack again, Pominville the nice feed to Mikael Granlund who scores a fantastic goal!

2-0 Wild at that point.
