Blackhawks show off depth in Game 1 against Wild

CHICAGO (AP) - The Minnesota Wild got a terrific effort from goaltender Josh Harding. Ryan Suter helped Minnesota keep Chicago's high-powered attack in check, and the Wild still lost Game 1 to the Blackhawks.

The Blackhawks are so deep that it's tough to keep track of everyone. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville says his team's depth is a strength.

Harding could be in the net again for Game 2 on Friday night at the United Center if Nicklas Backstrom is out again with a leg injury.
