NHL: Ryan Suter, Devan Dubnyk help Wild beat Blackhawks 2-1

The Minnesota Wild overcame a shaky start for a timely victory against a division rival.

Ryan Suter then gave the Wild a lead they wouldn't relinquish early in the third period with a snipe from just above the right circle.

Ryan Suter scored the game-winner in the third after Jonas Brodin tied it at 1 in the second.

It was the dreaded four-point game, as the Wild leapfrogged the Hawks into the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference with the win.

"We've talked about it, you guys have talked about it and we have to find a way in our room to have better second periods", said Phaneuf.

Still, the Wild will take what they can, especially after the game looked like it could be headed for a blowout early on.

"You saw the first period", Boudreau said. "[The Blackhawks] probably had the puck 15 minutes in our zone, it was embarrassing".

For the Wild to be down just one goal after one period to the Blackhawks was a surprise - or as Boudreau put it, "amazing".

NHL: Ryan Suter, Devan Dubnyk help Wild beat Blackhawks 2-1

Patrick Kane scored a goal and added four assists in a 8-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night.

But that's all the Blackhawks could muster. Kane had five points for the first time in his career.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres coach Phil Housley is OK with tempers flaring on his struggling team after forward Evander Kane and defenseman Justin Falk had to be separated following a brief shoving match during practice. Richard Panik, Patrick Sharp, Jonathan Toews, Nick Schmaltz, and Jan Rutta scored for Chicago in the victory. "I know the Blackhawks and us in the past, it might not be till late March to get your team going as good as you can get to go".

The Hawks wouldn't be able to answer back and would fall in regulation to the Wild 2-1. There's no timetable for his return.

Even that goal - scored by Brent Seabrook in his return to the lineup after being a healthy scratch on Tuesday night - was a close call and very easily could have been disallowe.

It has been an eventful week of small moves for the Chicago Blackhawks, who, at the season's halfway mark, are out of playoff contention.

The talented but inconsistent Duclair has nine goals and six assists in 33 games this season, scoring in each of his last two games after reports surfaced that he had asked for a trade.

Seabrook, one of the team's alternate captains, has been with the Blackhawks all 13 seasons of his National Hockey League career and is fifth all time in games played for the franchise. He is expected to be out until the Wild returns from their bye week on January 20.
