Anton Forsberg gets call in goal for Blackhawks against Senators

The Minnesota Wild overcame a shaky start for a timely victory against a division rival.

Ryan Suter scored early in the third period during four-on-four play to make it 2-1 Wild after Patrick Kane took a tripping penalty while the Hawks were on a power play.

Granlund and Spurgeon scored in the third period as Minnesota overcame a 2-0 deficit before ultimately losing in overtime. He also should have had Sharp's effort at 5:14 of the period that got the onslaught underway for the Hawks and led to Anderson's exit.

"We've talked about it, you guys have talked about it and we have to find a way in our room to have better second periods", said Phaneuf.

The Calgary Flames got off to a mediocre start this season, but thanks to their red-hot play (sorry!) recently, they've managed to climb back into the Western Conference playoff picture. "You saw that tonight". "[The Blackhawks] probably had the puck 15 minutes in our zone, it was embarrassing". The line of Mikko Koivu, Jason Zucker - the Wild's resident speedster - and Mikael Granlund was on the ice for both Wild goals.

"To [the Wild's] credit, I thought in the second and third period, they really buckled down and played really hard". A night after scoring four power-play goals in an 8-2 win over Ottawa, the Hawks came up empty on all three power plays - all of them ugly - including an opportunity late in the third period.

But that's all the Blackhawks could muster.

Patrick Kane had a five-point night while Nick Schmaltz and Jonathan Toews had two-goal efforts. "From there, it's going to be good". "You just never want to play those types of games". Starter Corey Crawford is still on injured reserve with an upper-body injury that will keep him out indefinitely. There's no timetable for his return.

Capitalizing on the opportunity to play the fourth-worst penalty kill unit in the league, Chicago scored a season-high four goals on the power play. They would be in the playoffs if the season ended postgame.

Seabrook has a goal and 10 assists in 41 games for the 20-15-6 Blackhawks, who are now last in the Central Division after making the playoffs each year and winning three Stanley Cups over the last nine seasons.

Entering Wednesday, the 32-year-old Seabrook had just one goal and 10 assists in 41 games and had often looked sluggish.

Coach Joel Quenneville said making decisions like sitting the three-time Stanley Cup victor isn't an easy one, but Seabrook responded by getting on the scoresheet. He is expected to be out until the Wild returns from their bye week on January 20.
