Man this series is such a downer, the Wild have been so pathetic these last two years. I think half of the non-playoff teams would give the Hawks more trouble. Please let something interesting happen soon, watching Chicago steamroll Minnesota again is just so disappointing.

Bryzgalov in goal and this series is over in 4. With Kuemper or Harding Wild have a chance.

Wild have been in the games, so don't see us sweeping it. Thinking (or at least hoping) we split the next two in St. Paul.

Koivu needs to go away. And Moulson can stay in the locker room.

Minnesota has been in the games without feeling like a real threat to win. They don't generate any offense until they're behind. Better start, better performance from their top guns and they have a chance to win some games. Hasn't been a great series to watch so far.

If there was ever a series to just skip, this is it.

All Hawks have to do is split in Minny and this thing's over. They won't lose twice on home ice.

As a Wild fan, this series has been terrible. Both teams playing like crap, missing passes, fanning on shots, etc.. It's not even exciting that the games are close. A bunch of garbage hockey with a few good shots (unfortunately only by the Blackhawks so far) each game.

I guess I don't see how he's played badly.

I think most people thought this will be a short series. I'm surprised NBC took this over Pitt/NY today. Chicago will win in 4 or 5. I wish Colorado would of won instead of Minny, it would of been a much more entertaining series. They actually have an offense to compete with the Hawks.

Minnesota needs to sign Vanek, fire Yeo and hire Laviolette in the offseason.

Whenever Bryz is in net there's a very high chance the opposition is going to put up 3-4 goals on him. And sure, you might think "OK, those were all sniped," but after a while you begin to realize Bryz gets "sniped" more than just about any goalie in the league.

This. Bryz plays behind extremely good defensive team yet look at his numbers and compare them to other Wild goalies.

If Bryz's glove were it should be that Bickell shot would have seem relatively easy save.

Top corner = goes in 100% of the time.

He needs to keep his glove hand high. During the Avs series he was constantly too deep in his net. I think he's fixed some of that.

Also he's not capable of game savers.

The Toews line is absolutely dominating the Praise line. Wild need to get away from that matchup with last change on home ice.
