Despite a tremendous effort by Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford, who made 34 saves in the contest, the Hawks fell 3-2 in overtime to the Minnesota Wild Sunday afternoon in St. Paul. The loss brings the series to 2-1 with the Blackhawks still having the advantage.
After a first period goal by Johnny Oduya, his first of the playoffs, assisted by Patrick Kane and Marian Hossa, the game would sway in the direction of the Wild. At 18:37 Pierre-Marc Bouchard would also tally his first goal of the playoffs, tying the score. Cal Clutterbuck registered an assist.
After a quiet second period Zach Parise put the Wild ahead in the third period. The Wild would maintain the lead until Duncan Keith tied the game in the final minutes sending it into overtime. Jason Zucker put the game away for the Wild.
Game 4 will take place Tuesday night in Minnesota.
