ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Martin Havlat's first two goals in a Minnesota uniform helped the Wild blank the Chicago Blackhawks 3-0 on Sunday.
Havlat, who came to Minnesota over the summer as a free agent after spending the previous three seasons in Chicago, needed just 84 seconds to score on a tap-in after a pass from Benoit Pouliot. Havlat and newly acquired Petr Sykora also scored in the third period.
Minnesota goalies Nicklas Backstrom and Anton Khudobin combined to stop all 18 Chicago shots. Backstrom played the first two periods and stopped 11 shots.
Blackhawks stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews were scratched and forward Adam Burish limped off the ice in the first period and didn't return.
Goalie Antti Niemi started and made 12 saves in the first two periods. Corey Crawford made 2 in the third.
