Video: Wild’s Suter returns after awkward fall in second period

May 6, 2014, 11:03 PM EDT

There were some anxious moments for the Minnesota Wild and its fans Tuesday.

Defenseman Ryan Suter, the anchor of the Minnesota blue line, temporarily left the game in the second period of Game 3 against the Chicago Blackhawks after an awkward fall with Marian Hossa.

Suter headed down the tunnel to the Minnesota dressing room, but did return to begin the third period.

Losing Suter would’ve been a monumental hole for the Wild to fill. The 29-year-old defenseman eats up a lot of minutes for the Wild. In Game 1 of this series, he played more than 25 minutes. In Game 2, he was over 27 minutes.

    The Wild are the most boring, trap-minded team in the league. 12 shots on goal with 10 minutes left… Introducing your modern-day 1995 New Jersey Devils. What a horrible product to watch!

    Well, hopefully Q realizes he can’t hide Bollig and Versteeg.

    And get Leddy out of the press box.
