Can Blackhawks beat Wild in regulation?

Sure, that headline seems preposterous. But the Chicago Blackhawks, even though they're 19-0-3 through 22 games this season, have yet to defeat the Minnesota Wild in their three previous meetings -- stretching back to last year.

Yes, they're all shootout wins for the Wild, but two points are two points -- especially against the ultra-hot Hawks.

Wild coach Mike Yeo tells the Associated Press that pulling out another win against Chicago won't be easy, but he's excited for tonight:

"We just have to play our game," Yeo said. "We're a darn good team, too."

The Wild are playing better the past few weeks, winning five of seven, including a 4-2 win over Edmonton on Sunday.
