The Wild won all five games including Chicago's win in game four on Sunday night in Chicago. In fact, both teams were unbeaten on home ice in the playoffs. 

In the 1st period, Chicago's Kris Versteeg wins a puck battle in the Minnesota zone, he fired it toward the crease and the puck crossed the goal line. That was the 1st playoff goal for Versteeg.  Chicago took an early 1-0 lead. 
But in the 2nd period, the Wild get an equalizer Erik Haula wins a foot race to the lose puck and beats Corey Crawford.  Game tied 1-1.  
In OT, Chicago's Brent Seabrook fires the puck in from center ice and it takes a funny bounce off the boards and goes to Patrick Kane who scores on the backhand side.   
The Blackhawks win the series 4 games to 2 and advance to the Western Conference Finals for the 4th time in the last 6 years.  Chicago now awaits the winner of the Kings-Ducks series.
