The first period saw Michael Frolik bury a rebound off of a Minnesota Wild shot block in front of the goal to put the Blackhawks up 1-0.

In the second period, Frolik took another rebound off of a shot block and put it past Josh Harding for a shorthanded goal to put Chicago up 2-0. Late in the period, Devin Setoguchi took an excellent pass from Matt Cullen and put lots of torque behind a wrist shot that beat Corey Crawford upstairs under the bar to make it 2-1.

Patrick Sharp took a bounce off of the backboards and went forehand, backhand to the roof and scored to make it 3-1 for Chicago. Later in the period, Patrick Sharp scored again when Patrick Kane gave him a no-look pass that Sharp tapped into an open net. Marco Scandella scored for Minnesota late in the third period to close the gap to 4-2, but it wasn't enough for the Wild as Bryan Bickell scored an empty-net goal with 10 seconds to go in the game.
