Are we going to see a more thrilling Game 4 after the Minnesota Wild beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-0 in Game 3? The Wild are probably more worried about tying the series as the Blackhawks currently hold a 2-1 lead in that regard.
After all, Minnesota fell to Chicago in five games last year. Even if this is a different round and different season, the Wild likely want to prove that they can hang with the Blackhawks. Winning on Friday would do that.
Game 4 kicks off on NBCSN and can be streamed via the link below.
While the Blackhawks made tweaks to their lineup, the most intriguing change might revolve around the return of Matt Cooke, who returns from his seven-game suspension tonight. Could that extra motivation and fresh legs make a difference?
