    Just way too much space in the middle. The Wild are unwatchable when they get like this. They didn't control the puck well, giving it away in troublesome areas and they let the Hawks have their way in the neutral zone.

    One of the goals was a fluky thing from Dubnyk, but the rest were squarely on Minnesota's players not taking care of things they should between the blue lines.

    Minnesota's a different team at home so I'm hoping they can crank up the defense like they did against St. Louis in the last round when the series was in St. Paul and even this thing up.
