2013 NHL Season:Minnesota Wild vs.
Chicago BlackhawksMarch 05, 2013 by Marc Jerbs

On Tuesday, the Chicago Blackhawks faces the Minnesota Wild in their 2nd regular season matchup at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The game is set to start at 8:30PM ET.

The Blackhawks have started the season in record fashion. In their first 22 games, they have won 19 and have only 3 losses in overtime. No team has beaten them yet in the regulation period.

Last weekend, Chicago was on the verge of their first regulation loss at Detroit but All-Star Patrick Kane sent the game to overtime and scored the only shootout goal that gave the Blackhawks' ninth consecutive win.

The Minnesota Wild is coming off its fifth win in seven games. They do have the numbers against Chicago. The Wild has defeated the Blackhawks in their last three matchups. All three wins were from shootouts. Coach Mike Yeo knows that pulling another fast one on the Blackhawks won't be easy, but his team is ready for the challenge.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Chicago Blackhawks as a 1.5-point favorite to beat the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.
