Jiri Hudler scored his sixth goal of the season for the Flames. Calgary goalie Reto Berra stopped 13 of 15 shots through two periods before the Wild broke it open with two goals over 33 seconds midway through the third.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
