Down 2-0, the Minnesota Wild found themselves in a familiar situation following their 4-1 loss in Game 2 against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Kris Versteeg appears to be back in the Chicago lineup tonight and Ilya Bryzgalov will start for Minnesota as the Blackhawks host the Wild in Game 1 of their second-round series on Friday night.
No Niklas Backstrom, no Josh Harding, possibly no Darcy Kuemper.
It took a while for everything to shake out but the 2nd round is finally here.
