Continued: Wild thumped 5-2 by Blackhawks in Game 2

The Wild generated 15 shots in the period — six on one power play that Crawford robbed Parise on twice. The Wild eventually cut it to 2-1 when Cullen feathered a pass to Setoguchi for a partial break and he sniped his 15th career playoff goal over Crawford’s glove.

But with the Wild back in the game, Sharp scored 3:44 into the third, and as Brodziak said, “they took it to us in the third.”

“We weren’t playing with the pace that we needed to play,” Yeo said. “A large number of the things that we were doing helped them build the speed into their game. They were better tonight from Game 1 and we were worse.”
