Game 1 recap

Star Tribune’s three stars

1. Patrick Kane, Blackhawks: Scored two goals, breaking a 2-2 tie 1:26 after the Wild drew even, by dancing through the neutral zone and beating Ilya Bryzgalov with a backhander in tight.

2. Clayton Stoner, Wild: Threw some big hits, and was credited with the Wild’s first goal when his shot was kicked in by a Chicago skate.

3. Marian Hossa, Blackhawks: After assisting on the Hawks’ first goal by Bryan Bickell, Hossa netted one himself three minutes later.

Turning point

Kane scored at 8:22 of the third period on a great individual effort, breaking a 2-2 tie after the Wild surged with two third-period goals to tie it.
