Chicago Blackhawks vs. Minnesota Wild: Biggest Takeaways from Game 3
Ann Heisenfelt/Associated Press

The pressure was building in Game 3 at the Xcel Energy Center Tuesday night.

As the teams battled through two scoreless periods, the Minnesota Wild felt a certain level of relief because they had not fallen victim to the Chicago Blackhawks' versatile attack. However, they couldn't put a puck past Corey Crawford and their offense had gone missing in action.

It was all about which team would crack first.

It didn't take long once the third period started. The Wild got a picture-perfect goal from speedy Erik Haula, and it was like they had received a jolt from a defibrillator. The team's heartbeat suddenly got stronger, the blood was pumping and the Wild cruised to a 4-0 victorytheir first in the series.

While they will have to win three more times, they demonstrated that they can play with the defending Stanley Cup champions—at least for one night.

Here are the takeaways from Minnesota's Game 3 win.
