from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,
The Wild is conceding nothing.
The objective Tuesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks is the same as it was two weeks ago when the Wild forced a Game 7 against the Colorado Avalanche behind Zach Parise’s career-high four points.
Facing its third elimination game of the postseason, the Wild desperately wants to take this “must-win” contest so it can get a fourth crack at winning in Chicago. A victory in Game 6 would force a decisive Game 7 on Thursday night at the United Center and give the Wild a chance to advance to the second conference final in franchise history.
But whatever happens, all the stress and anxiety that has come this taxing postseason can only help this growing organization in the long run.
“Every day it’s a different emotion depending on how you play the night before or the sleep you get or don’t get,” veteran defenseman Ryan Suter said. “There’s a lot that goes into it. I’m enjoying it. It’s fun. It’s a learning experience for me. I’ve never been past the second round. It’s a huge challenge for me and for our team.”
