Then Brandon Saad scored in the final minute of the second period on a wrist shot that deflected off of Zach Parise's stick to give Chicago the 2-0 lead.

A goal by Cody McCormick just two minutes into the third period got the Wild on the board and cut the Chicago lead to 2-1. Minnesota took control of the tempo of the game after the goal but were unable to get the tying goal.

Bryan Bickell took a nice pass from Hossa and scored on a 2-on-1 break to make it 3-1 Blackhawks with 2:45 left in the game. An empty-net goal by Brandon Saad iced the win for Chicago.
