Continued: Kane, Blackhawks too much for Wild in Game 1

“It was a very winnable game for us,” Yeo said. “But it didn’t have the feel of a game that we were going to win, but to get yourself in that opportunity … you’ve got to buckle down. In those key moments, we’ve been stronger than that lately.”

The Wild, coming straight off the battlefield from two days prior against the Avalanche, was hoping to catch the Blackhawks, who had five days rest, off-guard with a fast pace in the first period.

That fast hockey came to a halt when Brodin took a double-minor on Hossa. The Wild lost the special teams battle, allowing two power-play goals on four chances and going 0-for-3 on its power play.

And then Kane, like he does to so many, put the dagger in.

“The thing I like about Kaner the best is the big stages, he always seems to put one in,” Sharp said.
