Wild Vs. Blackhawks Final: Minnesota Blows Two-Goal lead, Still Wins In Shootout

It went the distance, but a shootout goal by Devin Setoguchi earned the Minnesota Wild a 5-4 road win over the Chicago Blackhawks Sunday night. Minnesota had led 4-2 in the second period, but the Blackhawks rallied to tie it at 4-4 on a power play goal by Patrick Kane with just under three minutes left.

Eric Christensen also scored for Minnesota in the overtime shootout, as both he and Kane scored on each team's first shots. Setoguchi provided the 2-1 difference, however on the final attempt, as Josh Harding had a save and Dave Bolland missed the net.

Setoguchi and Dany Heatley each had first period goals for Minnesota, but the opening frame was marred by penalties. A pair of fights broke out and Andrew Shaw drew a 10 minute misconduct.

Clayton Stoner got his first goal of the season while Kyle Brodziak also scored in the second period for Minnesota.
