Continued: Chicago shuts down Wild, takes 3-1 series lead

Harding was slow to get up. At the next stoppage, he began flexing his left leg. He gutted it out the rest of the period, but an ice-cold Kuemper led the Wild onto the ice for the second.

Sixty-two seconds in, after Parise’s errant pass was picked off by Sharp, Kuemper gave up a goal he should have stopped.

“Tough situation for Kuemps to come in,” Yeo said.

From there, the Wild’s power play continued to fail, including consecutive power plays to start the third.

“That’s the difference,” Koivu said. “We couldn’t capitalize on those chances. You can’t score. You can’t win a hockey game.”

Now the Wild must somehow reel off three consecutive victories to ensure its season doesn’t end.

“You guys count us out quite a bit,” Parise said tersely. “So we’ll have to rebound and work on winning that next game and getting this series back here.”
