Oh, no and 3! Wild face elimination after Chicago's shutout victory


The Minnesota Wild lost game 3 of a playoff series for the first time under coach Mike Yeo, as they fell to the Blackhawks Tuesday night 1-0 at the Xcel Energy Center.

Patrick Kane scored a goal in his fourth straight playoff game, but it was Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford who stole the show. Crawford has made a habit of shutting the door on the Wild in the playoffs and he did it again Tuesday, stopping all 30 shots he faced.

The Blackhawks are now an impressive 29-0-0 in regular season and post-season games in which they've been leading after two periods.

Devan Dubnyk was solid in net for the Wild as well. He stopped 21 shots, but it was the one he didn't that came back to haunt the Wild.

Chicago now leads the series 3-0. The Blackhawks could lock it up on Thursday night in Game 4 at the Xcel Energy Center. In NHL history only four teams have ever rallied back after trailing 3-0 in a series.
