The Blackhawks meet the Wild on Thursday night looking to solve their own issues against a struggling Minnesota team. It'll be an emotional night for Zach Parise, who lost his father, J.P. Parise, earlier in the day after a lengthy fight with cancer -- our thoughts go out to the Parise family. (Update: Parise isn't active for the game. That's understandable given the situation)
Both teams could badly use a strong win, so expect an exciting game up in Minnesota.
