(CBS) If a Game 7 is needed to decide the Western Conference semifinal series between the Blackhawks and Wild, it will start at 7 p.m. Thursday at the United Center and be televised on NBC Sports Network, the NHL announced Monday.

Chicago leads the best-of-seven series 3-2 and will try to close it out Tuesday night in Minnesota. The Blackhawks grabbed the upper hand last night when Jonathan Toews’ early third-period goal helped them grab a 2-1 win.
