Video: Will the Wild have success in Round 2?

May 2, 2014, 8:59 PM EDT

The Minnesota Wild got through the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, thanks to a thrilling Game 7 overtime victory against the Colorado Avalanche. Now, it doesn’t get any easier for them in Round Two, going up against the Chicago Blackhawks, the defending Stanley Cup champs.

Goaltending is also the big question for the Wild, with Ilya Bryzgalov getting the start in Game 1 Friday. But can the Wild pull off an upset in this round? Do they have a chance?

        Hugh? Corey C has a .935 save% thus far, having been key in defeating a team that during the regular season was pretty much a top 3 team.

        I wouold not consider that being a flake at all.

    The Wild goalie situation will be the deciding factor if they make this series interesting or not. Hawks are still a deeper team, that said, go Wild!
