On Tuesday, the six Blackhawks defensemen played in the 22- to 27-minute range. The Wild’s allotment of ice time for its defensemen was all over the map, starting with Ryan Suter’s franchise-record 41:08 and Jonas Brodin’s 34:20 (sixth highest by a rookie in the playoff since 2009).

Asked if such a disparity can continue in a long series, Yeo said that with two off days between Games 1 and 2, the Wild believed it could extend Suter and Brodin.

“Certainly as the series goes on and depending on the schedule, we’ll have to manage that, for sure,” Yeo said. “At the same time, you look at Suts and the guys that play large minutes, it doesn’t affect them. We’ll make sure we’re on top of that. When those guys are fresh, if they’re ready to perform at their highest level, we want them on the ice.”
