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.
I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
