The Minnesota Wild haven’t lost often, particularly in the past month, but they did fall to the Chicago Blackhawks in their last meeting.
That was a spirited affair that ended with a 4-3 overtime win for Chicago, a setback that began what’s been a mostly successful run of home games for the Wild.
The Blackhawks aim for a similar result – ideally this time in regulation – to make up ground against the Wild in the Central Division.
At the moment, the Wild have more points (84 to 77) a game in hand, more wins (39 to 36) and more ROW (36 to 34). Catching the Wild even with a win tonight wouldn’t be easy for Chicago; a regulation loss would make the odds extremely slim.
If their last game was any indication, this should be a fun one on NBCSN. You can also watch online or via the NBC Sports App.
