Meanwhile, Karlsson was taking his share of shots at practice this morning. Karlsson was recalled from Rockford last weekend.

The Blackhawks will be facing a Minnesota Wild team that is making its first playoff appearance in five seasons.

The Wild, according to Minneapolis Star-Tribune beat writer Michael Russo, will depart Chicago after Game 1 and practice back in Minnesota on Wednesday and Thursday before returning here for Game 2 on Friday.
