Continued: Suter thrives playing 'crazy' minutes for Wild

Not all of Suter’s teammates understand his stamina.

“He comes off the ice after what seems like a two-minute shift, and he’s not even breathing heavy,” Parise said. “I don’t get it.”

Sydor said that even late in games, he sees no dropoff in Suter’s intensity or will. Yeo noted that Rick Wilson, who manages the defensemen, monitors all his players for signs of fatigue and will dial back their ice time if necessary. As long as Suter feels good, Yeo said, he wants him on the ice.

While the Blackhawks marveled at Suter’s 41 minutes in Game 1, they hope their depth and firepower can neutralize him as the series continues.

“We want to force him to make as many tough plays as possible,” defenseman Johnny Oduya said. “We want to try and wear him down, even though that’s very tough.”

The Blackhawks couldn’t do it in Game 1. Neither could his son in the morning-after mini-stick matchup. With two days of rest — and a desire to carry as much of the load as his team needs — Suter is eager to dive right back in.

“You’re going to have good shifts, and you’re going to have bad shifts,” he said. “It’s about the next shift. We can’t get down. We have to clear everything and be ready to go.”
