Toews' 3rd-period goal lifts Chicago Blackhawks to 2-1 victory over Minnesota Wild in Game 5

CHICAGO - Jonathan Toews had a rebound goal early in the third period, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Sunday night to take a 3-2 series lead in the Western Conference semifinals.

Bryan Bickell also scored and Corey Crawford made 27 saves as Chicago bounced back from consecutive losses in Minnesota that handed the momentum to the Wild heading into Game 5.

But the Blackhawks were back at the United Center, where they improved to 6-0 in this post-season and 17-2 over the past two playoffs.

Erik Haula scored in the first period for the Wild, and Ilya Bryzgalov had 26 stops.

Game 6 is Tuesday night in Minnesota, where the Wild are undefeated in this post-season.

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
