The Wild's playoff victory drought in Chicago continued Sunday as the Blackhawks won Game 2 4-1 to take a 2-0 series lead. The Wild have now lost eight straight playoff games at the United Center.
After a scoreless 1st period the Blackhawks got a short-handed goal from Jonathan Toews with just over seven minutes left in the 2nd. Patrick Kane then got a great feed from Duncan Keith and scored with about :20 left in the 2nd to give the Hawks a 2-0 lead going into the 2nd intermission.
Minnesota cut the lead to 2-1 but Patrick Sharp put the Hawks up 3-1 and then Kane added an empty-netter to make it 4-1.
Corey Crawford had 30 saves. Game 3 in St. Paul is Tuesday night.
