After losing both of the opening games of the matchup by three goals apiece, the Wild returned home with a vengeance and used a four-goal third period to cut Chicago's best-of-seven edge to 2-1.

Erik Haula and Zach Parise also added scores for Minnesota while goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov needed only 19 saves for the shutout.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks had their six-game winning streak snapped in defeat.

Game Four is on Friday in Minnesota.
