|CHI Leads Series 3 - 1|
Patrick Kane has been held goalless thus far, but has assists in all three games for a total of five in the series and leads the Blackhawks in scoring.
Corey Crawford has been tough in goal, posting a 1.81 goals against average and a .935 save percentage. However the Wild might be onto something, as all three goals on Sunday were high shots, while five of the six goals in the series have been scored in the upper-half of the net.
|The Wild will host a pregame party from 6 to 8 p.m. along the sidewalk between Gates 1 and 3 of Xcel Energy Center. The party will include live music by Five Man Advantage, food and drink, including a beer garden, a Hockey Lodge tent with new playoff merchandise, along with a Beard-A-Thon tent.
The Wild will wear its GREEN sweaters tonight.
|Bouchard scored and added assisted on Zucker’s OT game-winner in Game 3. Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo said it might’ve been the best game the forward has played since he’s been the team’s bench boss.
Cullen netted the primary assist on Sunday’s game-winning goal and leads the Wild in playoff points with three assists in a two-game streak. He has 39 points (11-28=39) in 66 career playoff games.
Pominville remains a game time decision. If he's not available, this is the likely lineup:
Coyle – Koivu – Parise
Zucker – Cullen – Setoguchi
Clutterbuck– Brodziak – Bouchard
Mitchell – Dowell – Veilleux
The blue line will go unchanged from Game 3:
Brodin – Suter
Scandella – Spurgeon
Gilbert – Falk
Josh Harding stopped 25 shots to earn his first career playoff win Sunday, also his first career playoff game at Xcel Energy Center. In his first three career playoff starts, he has stopped 103-of-111 shots for a 2.41 GAA and a .928 SV%.
|Part of the challenge for us next game will be to brace against their pushback. We know they are going to come hard and I'm anxious to see how we respond.
