Hossa, Emery Carry Blackhawks To 1-0 Win Over Wild

Posted By Sam Greenberg On April 10, 2013 @ 12:47 AM In NHL | No Comments

Marian Hossa’s unassisted goal late in the second period lifted the NHL-leading Chicago Blackhawks to their fifth win in six games, 1-0 over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.

Ray Emery started for the Blackhawks for the third straight game and made 20 saves for his second shutout in that stretch and third of the season. He helped hand the Wild their fifth loss in seven games.

Hossa looked like a Bears defensive back jumping in front of a wide receiver’s route when he darted in front of Clayton Stoner’s seemingly harmless breakout pass toward Mikko Koivu in the Wild zone. He intercepted the bouncing pass in front of the blue line, skated up the middle and snapped a shot past goalie Niklas Backstrom’s stick with 4:46 left in the period.
