Blackhawks fall to Wild 4-3; head home to face the Ducks

For the first time this season, the Chicago Blackhawks took two losses in a row.

The Green/White scrimmages will be open to the public Thursday and Sunday. If you cant make it to St. Paul you could always check out a local squirt tournament where you might find Suter's future "D" partn...
