Brent Seabrook scored the opening goal, but Minnesota rallied with two of their own to hand the Blackhawks a 2-1 loss Wednesday at United Center in Chicago.
The Wild leapfrogged the Hawks with the win and took over the last wild card spot in the Western Conference. Chicago has Thursday off and plays Winnipeg in its second game of a six-game homestand Friday.
The Hawks shipped forwards Richard Panik and Laurent Dauphin to Arizona in exchange for forward Anthony Duclair and defenseman Adam Clendening. Duclair is expected to make his debut Hawks debut Friday, while Clendening, who was drafted No. 36 overall in 2011 by Chicago, will report to the AHL.
