Blackhawks Vs Wild: Preview, Time And TV Schedule

The Minnesota Wild had their seven-game winning streak snapped Tuesday night in Winnipeg and, unfortunately for the home team, it won't be easy to get back on the winning track. The Wild are scheduled to play the Blackhawks on VERSUS in a game that is scheduled to have the puck dropped at 6:30 local time.

The Wild and Blackhawks are the top two teams in the NHL's Western Conference, and while injury concerns remain, the experts over at Hockey Wilderness summed up Wednesday night's questions quite well in their preview.

Whoever skates best be ready to go after an exciting game last night. Every player has to be tired after the end to end action, and Chicago is rested and ready to go. Look at the top two lines. Take a shift off, this game is over. They also have solid goaltending from Crawford, and elite defense from the likes of Keith and Seabrook. Also, Big John Scott makes a return to the X.

Five Questions:

Will the Wild have legs after the wild one in Winnipeg?
The Wild need a hero. Who will it be?
Does Backstrom have his A game for back to back nights?
Does the top line continue to put up points?
Can Wild fans Occupy the X and make some noise?

One other question -- Will the Wild be able to increase their lead in the conference standings?
