Wild Earn Exciting Win Over Blackhawks Thursday
The Minnesota Wild won their second straight game Thursday night with a 4-3 win over Chicago at Xcel Energy Center. Marco Scandella’s goal with just under two minutes left in the game was the game-winner.
Matt Cooke scored a first period goal to make the score 1-0 in favor of Minnesota, and Zach Parise’s power play goal late in the second period gave the Wild a 2-0 lead.
However, the Blackhawks would get a goal with less than a minute left in the period then score two more in the third to take a 3-2 lead with just over five minutes left.
Jonas Brodin notched the tying goal at 14:21 on a power play, followed by Scandella’s game winner at 18:12.
The Wild are at Columbus Friday.
