Hawks Blow Late Lead In 2-1 Shootout Loss To Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Cal Clutterbuck’s tying tip-in with 3:12 left in regulation and Devin Setoguchi’s shootout goal lifted the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night.

Setoguchi’s glove-side shot was the only one that went in during the skills contest. Josh Harding made 22 saves and was unscored upon after midway through the first period when Jamal Mayers gave the Blackhawks an early lead. The Hawks had only two shots on goal over the last 25 minutes of the game, one in the third.

Their struggling special teams didn’t help. The Wild gave them four power plays over the first two periods, including a five-minute man-advantage situation, but the Blackhawks didn’t score on any of those. Then their penalty kill let in a late goal.

  • Moderate Spaulding!

    Vegas needs to take prop bets on going 82 games without a shutout.
    Against Detroit? Let’s say fifteen to one.

    Still, I never saw a play quite like that that spoiled the goose egg for Crawford.
    I thought the guy could’ve gotten two minutes for backchecking Keith when he was, clearly, in position, and had no puck in sight.

    Also, that first shot on Crawford could’ve gone either way. He didn’t have control of the puck. Sharp’s “shot?” Ugh! Well, that’s fake hockey. They still made some really exciting plays late in the game.
