St. Paul, MN (Sports Network) - Jason Zucker's tally 2:15 into overtime lifted
the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of
this Western Conference quarterfinal.
Zucker, who hit the crossbar in a Game 1 overtime loss, fired a loose puck
home from along the goal line to the left of the Chicago net for his first
career playoff marker.
Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Zach Parise also lit the lamp for the Wild, who had
lost the first two games on the road to kick off their first postseason series
since 2008. Josh Harding made 25 stops.
Johnny Oduya and Duncan Keith scored for the Blackhawks, while Corey Crawford
posted 34 saves in defeat.
