TAMED:

Thanks for playing, Wild.  That makes it three years in a row that the Blackhawks eliminated Minnesota in the playoffs.  This time, they only needed four games.  Get your brooms out!  Sweeeeeeeeeeeep.

It was a pretty ... wild ... finish to Game 4 though, with Minnesota (on the power play, in fairness) pulling their goaltender with almost 4 minutes still to play and down just two goals.  Hossa made them pay and put the Hawks up 4-1.  But then the Wild did score.  And then scored again a few seconds later to set up a the exciting finish.  Crow and the tired defense stood tall finally and the Hawks move on.

Rozsival looked to have blown his knee out however, which is a problem (and not just for the playoffs but possibly for his career).  Kimmo's ancient and probably not ready to take up that 20-minute 5th defenseman role.  But he's gonna have to step it up!
