Stanley Cup Playoffs 2013, Blackhawks vs. Wild Game 4: Time, TV schedule and more

Hannah Foslien

The Minnesota Wild will host the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal on Tuesday night. Chicago leads the series, 2-1.

The Minnesota Wild managed to battle their way back into the Western Conference Quarterfinal by defeating the heavily favored Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3, by way of overtime, on Sunday afternoon.

Jason Zucker recorded the game-winning goal a little over two minutes into the extra frame and helped the Wild cut their series deficit to 2-1. The two teams will meet again at Minnesota's Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday night, where the Wild will attempt to even the series at two games apiece.

Will special teams play a factor in Game 4?

Well, they haven't thus far in the series. With the exception of a lone power play goal from the Blackhawks in Game 1, both teams have failed to convert on 18 man advantage opportunities. Considering two of the three contests have gone to overtime and thus have been deiced by a single goal, a power play tally from either team could prove to be a deciding factor.

Will the game require overtime?

With the exception of the third period in Game 2, Minnesota has capably held Chicago in check. Will that be the case in Game 4?

Will physicality be a key component to the contest?

The Blackhawks believe they were pushed around in Game 3. Defenseman Brent Seabrook specifically identified himself as a player that needs to be more physically involved in the game. With that in mind, will Game 4 have a physical tone? If so, who will drive it?

Game time: 9:30 p.m., ET
National TV: CBC, RDS2, NBCSN
