CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks lead the Minnesota Wild 4-1 after two periods at the United Center.

The Hawks took control of the game in the middle 20 minutes, scoring two goals 23 seconds apart midway through the period. After Viktor Stalberg’s speed drew a hooking call on Justin Falk the Hawks went to work on the power play.

Dave Bolland set up camp behind Josh Harding and found Jimmy Hayes in front for his third goal in less than seven games since being recalled from the minors. A few moments later Jonathan Toews muscled a Wild player off the puck as they entered the Minnesota zone then Toews found Viktor Stalberg in the middle of the ice for a score. It’s Stalberg’s 13th goal, setting a career high in just Game No. 44.

The Hawks added another power-play goal from their second unit when Bolland knocked in a rebound of a Steve Montador shot. That ended the night for starting goalie Josh Harding. Matt Hackett took over.

Andrew Shaw has the other Hawks tally back in the first period while Devin Setoguchi has the Wild’s goal.
