The Minnesota Wild will try to get on the board in the Western Conference semifinals when they host the Chicago Blackhawks in Tuesdays Game 3 battle at Xcel Energy Center. Watch the game live on TSN and TSN GO at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt. The Wild dropped the first two games of this best-of-seven set in Chicago and hope to avoid falling behind 3-0 against the defending Stanley Cup champions. Minnesota was eliminated by the Blackhawks in five games during last seasons conference quarterfinals, with the Wilds lone victory coming in Game 3 on home ice. However, if the Blackhawks can record another win on Tuesday the club will get a chance to sweep the Wild this Friday in Minnesota. Chicago posted a 5-2 win in Fridays Game 1 in the Windy City and grabbed a 2-0 lead in the series with Sundays 4-1 triumph at the United Center. Bryan Bickell supplied a goal and two assists and Brandon Saad scored twice to help the Blackhawks extend their series lead. Saad scored his first of the playoffs in the final minute of the second period to stake Chicago to a 2-0 lead, but Cody McCormick lit the lamp two minutes into the third to slice Minnesotas deficit in half. However, Corey Crawford kept the Wild at bay from there before Bickell buried a wrister with 2:45 remaining to give the Blackhawks some breathing room. Saad added an empty-netter 1:22 later to account for the final margin, while Jonathan Toews opened the scoring in the first for the Blackhawks, who have won six straight games after falling behind 2-0 in their opening-round series against St. Louis. "I thought (we were) much better overall, all three periods for us," said Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville. "I thought we were better overall in all areas and all periods." Marian Hossa added three assists in the victory, while Crawford finished with 18 saves. Toews extended his point streak to six games, while Bickell has at least one point in five straight games. Bickell had 17 points on nine goals and eight assists in the 2013 playoffs to help Chicago win its second Cup in four years. He is tied for second in the league with five goals this postseason. "I just love this time of year," Bickell said of his postseason success. "Its a crucial time, its a fun time. I know the city is buzzing and were having a good time. We just need to keep this momentum going to Minnesota." Ilya Bryzgalov allowed three goals on 21 shots for the Wild, who lost Sunday for the 10th time in their last 11 road playoff games. Bryzgalov got his second straight start in place of an injured Darcy Kuemper, who was forced to exit Minnesotas Game 7 win over Colorado in the first round after sustaining an undisclosed injury late in the contest. "I thought that we didnt have the legs tonight," Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo said. "That was a big factor. You could see it in our puck support. We were making a lot of stationary plays." With Kuemper expected to miss another tilt, the situation in net will likely remain unchanged on Tuesday. John Curry, a 30-year-old journeyman, has suited up as Bryzgalovs backup in the first two games of this series and expects to do so again in Game 3. Curry has seen action in six career NHL games and none in the playoffs. Chicago center Andrew Shaw missed the second contest of this series after exiting Game 1 with a lower-body injury and was replaced in the lineup by Jeremy Morin. Forward Kris Versteeg also played in Game 2 after missing the opener due to illness.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Another baseball tradition is about to largely disappear: a manager, with a crazed look in his eyes, charging the field and getting into a face-to-face shouting match with an umpire. Instead, most calls on the field next season will be subject to video review by umpires in New York, Major League Baseball took the first vote in a two-step process Thursday, unanimously approving funding for expanded instant replay in 2014. They plan to approve the new rules when they meet Jan. 16 in Paradise Valley, Ariz., after agreements with the unions for umpires and players. "We made a gigantic move today," Commissioner Bud Selig said. "This is quite historic." Selig long opposed replay and watched from afar as it was first used by the NFL in 1986, the NHL in 1991, the NBA in 2002 and Wimbledon in 2006. Even the Little League World Series put replay in place for 2008. MLB allowed it starting August 2008 but in a limited manner: to determine whether potential home runs were fair or cleared fences. Now, virtually every decision likely will be subject to review, except balls and strikes, checked swings and some foul tips. "Tag plays, out/safe at first, fair/foul past the bags, those are all going to be included," said Rob Manfred, MLBs chief operating officer. So no more blown calls, like Don Denkingers at first base that turned Game 6 of the 1985 World Series or Jim Joyces bad decision at first base that cost Detroits Armando Galarraga a perfect game in 2010. "We want to get more plays right, the ones that matter," Manfred said. Manfred said when a manager wants to challenge a call, he will notify an umpire, triggering a review in New York by what are likely to be present or retired big league umps. A headset would be brought to the crew chief, who would be notified of the decision. There will be a maximum of two challenges per manager in each game -- "it could be less," Manfred said -- and if the challenge is upheld it would not be counted against the managers limit. If a manager is out of challenges, umpires probably will be allowed request a review on their own. "Getting more plays right can only enhance the game," St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. Manfred appeared to indicate that the video being reviewed in New York could be show to fans in stadiums or possibly on television broadcasts. "I think you can expect that there will be as part of this package expanded use of in-stadium video boards," he said. Selig has emphasized that he doesnt want replay to slow games, whose increased length in recent decades has been targeted for criticism..dddddddddddd "The current thinking is that if a manager comes out and argues, once he argues, he cant challenge that play," Manfred said. "One way to control the timing of challenges is to use the natural flow of the game, that is the next pitch cuts off your right to challenge." But MLB doesnt want managers to tell players to stall to give team employees time to review video on their own and instruct the dugout whether to use a challenge. In tests last week at the Arizona Fall League, most reviews averaged 1 minute, 40 seconds. Former manager Tony La Russa, now an MLB special adviser, said managers will have to "rely on their integrity" and not cause delays. "This is an historic opportunity," he said. "Were going to monitor it. If somebody plays around with it, theyre going to get called on the carpet." Manfred said the initial rules likely wont be the final ones. "The system will see some continuing evolution until we get to a point of stability, similar to what you saw in the NFL," he said. In other news from the meeting: --Ray Davis was unanimously approved to succeed Nolan Ryan as controlling owner of the Texas Rangers. --MLB withdrew its proposal for a new bidding system with Japan, making it uncertain whether prized pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will be on the market this off-season. --Selig said while he is pleased Toronto and the New York Mets will play spring training games in Montreal, there should not be expectations of a permanent return to that city. "We dont have any clubs moving and we certainly dont have any expansion plans." --Following accusations of harassment in the Miami Dolphins locker room, Selig said he isnt worried about a similar issue in MLB clubhouses. "Im proud of our players. Im proud of the way that theyve acted, and I dont have any concerns on that subject." --Home plate collisions are not yet a big topic from his point of view: "They dont seem to be overly concerned about it at this point, but we have had ongoing discussion." --He is annoyed about the length of games. The average for nine-inning games was 2:59 this year, an increase of three minutes from 2012, and it was 3:17 in the post-season, up six minutes. "The length of some of the games all year but particularly in the playoffs and the World Series was -- I didnt like it. I was unhappy about it. ... There are things we can do and there are things we will do -- were going to have to do." --While MLB wants the Tampa Bay Rays to get a new ballpark, negotiations by the club to get out of its lease at Tropicana Field is a team matter for now.
