Video: Minnesota plays with extra skater for roughly 15 seconds

May 10, 2014, 11:14 AM EDT

The Wild got away with one during their 4-2 victory last night as Minnesota had six skaters on the ice for about 15 seconds starting at 12:10 of the third period.

With the Blackhawks forward Marcus Kruger taking the puck into the Wild zone, an army of Minnesota players got off the bench to hold Chicago at bay. Eventually the Wild realized their error and fix it without a penalty ever being called.

You can see that sequence below:

These kind of breaks happen from time-to-time and it doesn’t take away from the fact that the Wild had a great game. All the same, it would have been an ideal time for the Blackhawks to get a power play and with it an opportunity to shift the contest’s momentum.

The Wild and Blackhawks are tied at 2-2 in their second round series. Game 5 will be played on Sunday.
