Added Cullen: “That felt a lot more like a playoff game. The first two games, we were a little too quiet.”

Said Coyle: “You could tell they were looking over their shoulder. They knew someone was coming.”

Just like the Blackhawks did in Game 2, the Wild took its game to another level Sunday. The key now is to not let up Tuesday in Game 4.

“This was a huge, huge win for us,” Yeo said. “That said, we’re still trailing in this series. And I expect to see a better opponent, a very desperate opponent come our next game.”
