Preview: Wild at Blackhawks

“In a perfect world, would you like 12 (forwards) and six (defensemen)? Yeah,” said Boudreau, who likely will send 11 forwards and seven defensemen to the ice versus Chicago. “I think this is a great challenge. I don’t think it will happen all year long. Time will tell, but usually things work their way out.” Minnesota traditionally is one of the stingiest teams in the league, but it has allowed eight goals through two games and faces a Blackhawks contingent that has erupted for 21 in four contests. Captain Jonathan Toews, who recorded eight points (four goals, four assists) versus Minnesota last season, set up Brandon Saad’s team-leading fifth tally in a 3-1 win over Montreal on Tuesday.<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 8:30 p.m. ET, NHL.TV, FSN North (Minnesota), NBCSN Chicago
