Continued: Scoggins: Wild down to third goalie, and down 3-1 in series

“It wasn’t a good goal,” Kuemper said. “It’s a tough situation to go into, but no excuses. Not a goal I’d like to let in.”

Kuemper entered the game in a tough spot, and Zach Parise didn’t help the cause by committing a turnover that led to Sharp’s goal. That misadventure gave Chicago a 2-0 lead and sucked the life out of Xcel Energy Center. Fans probably feared an onslaught approaching at that point.

Kuemper settled in after his shaky start, but it hardly mattered because the Hawks tightened the screws defensively and blocked a boatload of shots to help their goalie, Corey Crawford.

That highlighted a different problem: If the Wild can’t score, it doesn’t matter who’s in goal.
