“We have to try to get the series back to Minnesota.”

That today, from Wild star Zach Parise as his team gets ready to face Chicago in Game 5 of their playoff series.

Minnesota has to win three straight, or they’re done for the year. A Game 6 would be Saturday in St. Paul.

"Bottom line: We have to convert on our opportunities," Parise told Wild.com.

Wild forward Jason Pominville says there’s two ways you can look at it: “We can feel sorry for ourselves, or we can pull up our sleeves and go to work.”

Pominville also says on the surface, Minnesota’s 0 for 15 on the power play looks bad. But he says some good things have happened on those shifts during the playoffs.

"Eventually we'll get a bounce here," he said. "We're going to regroup and try to be better."
