The Minnesota Wild played one of their best, most complete games of the season on Sunday afternoon to knock off the Chicago Blackhawks, 3-2, in Game 3 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series.

The game-winner came from rookie forward Jason Zucker, and he certainly earned it based on the way he played throughout the game.

Zucker finished the game with seven shot attempts (five on goal, one missed, one blocked) and the Wild outshot Chicago 10-3 while he was on the ice. Given that he only played 11 1/2 minutes that's a pretty impressive performance, and it may have earned him more ice time in future games this series.
