Blackhawks show off depth in Game 1 against Wild

CHICAGO - The Minnesota Wild got a terrific effort from goaltender Josh Harding. Ryan Suter helped Minnesota keep Chicago's high-powered attack in check, and the Wild still lost Game 1 to the Blackhawks.

The Blackhawks are so deep that it's tough to keep track of everyone. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville says his team's depth is a strength.

Harding could be in the net again for Game 2 on Friday night at the United Center if Nicklas Backstrom is out again with a leg injury.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
