It took the Wild 161 minutes and 41 seconds to grab their first lead of the series. But once they did, they would not let go.
The Wild defeated the Blackhawks 4-0 in Game 3 of their series at XCel Energy Center on Tuesday, shortening the Hawks lead in the series to 2-1. Their victory ensures there will be a Game 5 at the United Center on Sunday.
The hawks defeat is their ninth consecutive loss on the first road game of a playoff series, a streak that dates back to 2010.
