Chicago Blackhawks vs. Minnesota Wild. It’s a matchup that was under most people’s playoff radar; until last night. A majority of pundits had the Chicago Blackhawks sweeping the Wild. Regardless, this will be an interesting series. The Blackhawks came out flat against a Minnesota Wild team that was at the top of their game in game 1 of the playoff series Tuesday night. The Wild experienced a set back as well as star goalie Niklas Backstrom was scratched from the game after injuring himself during pregame warm ups. No word yet as to when he’ll return. Perhaps one of the best stories of the night was Wild back up goalie Josh Harding, who was diagnosed with MS prior to this season and hasn’t started in net since January 30th, tallying a spectacular 35 saves against a very powerful Blackhawks offense. The Blackhawks picked up the slack midway through the 2nd as Marian Hossa scored off a pass from Patrick Kane. The game went to Overtime and would end in epic fashion as Johnny Oduya ...

Suter enjoying extended ice time in playoffs

ST. PAUL, Minn. It almost looks like a misprint when you look at the box score from Tuesday's game between Minnesota and Chicago.

Suter played 41:08 in the Wild's 2-1 overtime loss in Game 1, nearly seven minutes more than the next-highest total for Minnesota fellow defenseman Jonas Brodin...

NHL announces outdoor game between Blackhawks and Penguins at Soldier Field

We've covered this before here at Puck Drunk Love; the NHL previously announced that they would be holding six outdoor games next season instead of the usual one.
