Wild Host Blackhawks Tonight In Must-Win Game Six
The Minnesota Wild have been here before. The same scenario presented itself in the last round versus Colorado; the Wild down 2 games to 3 at home facing elimination. Tonight it's the Chicago Blackhawks visiting the Xcel Energy Center.
A Wild win forces Game 7 Thursday night in Chicago. A Wild loss and the season's over for Minnesota.
Both teams are undefeated at home in the series and the entire postseason. The Blackhawks won Games 1 & 2 in Chicago. Minnesota delivered wins in Games 4 & 5 in St. Paul. Chicago Game 5 won at home on Sunday, setting up tonight's Game 6 back in St. Paul.
Let's Go Wild!
