Blackhawks vs. Minnesota Wild at the United Center, 7 p.m.


Radio: WGN-AM 720

The skinny: This is the first meeting between the two new Central Division rivals since the Hawks eliminated the Wild in five games in the first round of the playoffs. The Wild comes in banged up with goalie Josh Harding (lower body), defenseman Jonas Brodin (broken cheekbone), defenseman Keith Ballard (upper body), defenseman Charlie Coyle (knee strain) and left wing Mike Rupp (lower body all sidelined. Minnesota recalled goalie Johan Gustafsson to back up Niklas Backstrom Saturday.

Next: Minnesota Wild at Excel Energy Center, 7 p.m. Monday.
