The Minnesota Wild (43-18-6) lost to the Chicago Blackhawks (43-20-5) 4-2 this afternoon in the Windy City. The Blackhawks scored twice in the first five minutes of the game prompting head coach Bruce Boudreau to pull starting goaltender Devan Dubnyk.

The Wild remain one point ahead of Chicago in the Central Division, with the Blackhawks having played one more game. Minnesota also retains the top spot in the Western Conference, just three points behind the NHL's best of 95 by the Washington Capitals.
