The Game was scoreless through one as both teams would score in the 2nd twice. Erik Haula opened that scoring up for the Wild with his 11th making it 1-0 Minnesota and that was just 50 seconds into frame two as he beat Scott Darling of the Hawks. Nino Niederreiter gets his 18th as the Wild was up 2-0.
Not even two minutes after that Andrew Shaw scores his 11th on the season cutting that Hawks deficit to 2-1. Richard Panik then tied the game up five minutes and some change after Shaw as they beat Wild Blue-Paint Tenant Devan Dubnyk of the Wild.
The game went scoreless in the 3rd as they went to a shootout. The Hawks Captain Serious dba Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and Artemi Panarin all were stopped by Dubnyk as Charlie Coyle beat Darling in the Wild 1st attempt for a Shootout "W"!
The Hawks moved to 91 points as they are 4 points behind the Central leading Stars (Game tomorrow night at the Madhouse Stars vs Hawks) and two points behind the Blue Notes. Minnesota at 34-28-11 and 79 points is in the 9th slot just a point behind the Avs fighting for that last slot at #8 held down by Colorado.
