ST. Authentic Cody Eakin Jersey .

They were the better team tonight, for sure, and we dodged a bullet.Patrick Sharp and Patrick Kane also scored for Chicago, which has won four of six. The Blackhawks remained two points behind Nashville in the Central Division.Jason Zucker and Jason Pominville scored for Minnesota, which has lost nine of 11.We were short. Thats the bottom line, Wild captain Mikko Koivu said. But I thought we had a good 60-minute effort from everyone, from the whole team, and thats what were going to need to get out of this.Facing a hot goaltender wouldnt hurt, either.Crawford was at his best in the final two periods when the Wild had 37 shots on goal.I was just trying to look around traffic and to battle as hard as I could through screens and stuff, especially on their power play, he said.

He made 15 saves.Its not the easiest game to play as a goalie, he said. You have to find a way even if theres not a lot of chances and a lot of shots. When they got a shot, its very much a chance, so you have to find a way for that. You want to be better today.Backstrom might have been able to get a save on Chicagos first goal barely 5 minutes into the game. Sharp gathered a loose puck low in the left circle, cut to the net and tucked the puck behind the Wild goaltender. It marked the first time in seven games that Chicago scored the games first goal.Backstrom had almost no chance when Kane made it 2-0 with a power-play goal late in the period, converting from below the right circle before Backstrom could scurry back across the crease.Minnesotas slow start came one day after coach Mike Yeo laced an expletive-filled tirade at his team during an uninspired practice before breaking his stick over the boards and leaving the ice.We responded the right way, Pominville said. Our bench was positive. Our room was good. We did a lot of good things to give ourselves a chance to win, and if we play that way well probably win most of our games.The teams effort improved dramatically in the second period as the Wild controlled play, outshot Chicago 19-5, and scored the periods lone goal at 1:03.With Minnesota keeping sustained pressure in the offensive zone, Koivu sent a pass along the boards behind the goal to Pominville who passed to Zucker in the slot.

Whether the injury, suffered in Sundays 30-24 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, will keep Durant out of the lineup for an extended period of time is still not clear.

The star quarterback dropped to the turf in considerable pain before he was helped to the locker-room. He did not return to the game. "I wouldnt want Darians season to be ended," Chamblin said.
