St. Paul, MN (WDAY TV) – The Minnesota Wild seem to be a tale of two teams, an average team on the road and a unbeatable squad at home.

They proved that theory again last night as the Wild erupted for four goals in the 3rd period to beat Chicago.

A record crowd of over 19,400 filled the X and saw Minnesota's top players rise to the occasion, from Mikael Granlund to Zach Parise, but it was 3rd liner Erik Haula who scored the opening goal to get the Wild back in the series.

Erik Haula/Scored GW Goal Last Night: “We've been there with Colorado same kind of situation, and we just knew way we're playing we stuck with it for 60 minutes we had the feeling it would go our way.”

Zach Parise/Goal Last Night: “They outdo themselves every time, gets better and better, fortunately we've been able to win the games at home, they are such an important part of that, energy in the building, so much fun for us to play gives us energy and confidence playing here.”

You can bet the building will be buzzing on Friday night for Game 4, Matt Cooke will be back for the Wild after his 7 game suspension.
