“It’s not about running around and running out of position, but you can’t skate by guys,” Zach Parise said. “When you’re within a stick length of a guy, you’ve got to finish him. I think we did a better job of that.”
Leading 2-1 late in regulation, the Wild lost that edge and became too passive. The Blackhawks made a strong push and the Wild became reactionary instead. Chicago took advantage, getting a tying goal from Duncan Keith with 2 minutes, 46 seconds remaining.
“We kind of just held on, and we’ve got to learn from that,” Setoguchi said. “That’s something you can’t do. You can’t sit back and be on your heels. You’ve got to push back.”
The Wild regrouped at the intermission and then won on Zucker’s overtime goal. Afterward, the Wild took satisfaction in its physical style of play.
“We have a lot of guys that hit all night and every night,” Zucker said.
They can’t deviate from that script. It’s their only chance at success in this series.
