Wild Vs. Blackhawks: Minnesota Goes For Two In A Row

the Minnesota Wild got a much needed win over San Jose earlier in the week, and tonight they try to make it a winning streak as they head to Chicago to face the Blackhawks. Minnesota is seeking consecutive wins for the first time in over a month, as their recent slide has seen them go from first place in the Western Conference to barely hanging on to a playoff spot. SB Nation's Hockey Wilderness saw some positives in the win over San Jose:

The starting lineups held the two reasons for the emotions, and it didn't take long for Wild fans to get their chance to celebrate. Cal Clutterbuck roofed a sniper of s hot from the left circle at the 12:56 mark of the first to put the Wild up 1-0. A nice pass from Casey Wellman, and a nice deke by Clutterbuck between two d-men gave him the space he needed to get the shot off, and he capitalized on the chance.

Chicago currently leads the Central Division with 55 points.
