Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook is a healthy scratch for the game, one of many changes the team has made in the last couple of days.

But it certainly had to feel good for the veteran Seabrook.

The Minnesota Wild overcame a shaky start for a timely victory against a division rival.

Goran Dragic scored 20 points and Wayne Ellington made the decisive 3-pointer with 23.2 seconds left Wednesday night, helping Miami fend off Indiana's late push for a 114-106 victory.

Chicago was highlighted by a huge game from Patrick Kane in the win at Ottawa as he tallied a goal and four assists.

He said he probably has "very good relations" with Kim, stressing that he does indeed have "relationships with people". I could give you 20 examples. "I have relationships with people", Trump continued. "I'm not saying I have or haven't".

Wednesday's game in Chicago was your classic four-point game as the Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild entered the night in a three-way tie for the second Wild Card spot in the Western Conference with 48 points.

Thomas Chabot, Mike Hoffman and Gabriel Dumont also scored to help the Senators rebound from an 8-2 home loss to Chicago on Tuesday night.

Chicago has won the last two meetings and is coming off an impressive win at Ottawa, but often times complacency settles in for either of those situations. Stone's 18th of the season on a backhander by Forsberg at 10:35 of the second cut the Hawks lead to 4-1 and brought some life into the building.

The Hawks also failed to score on both their power plays after scoring four times with the man-advantage in Ottawa. Anton Forsberg made 25 saves on 27 shots to notch the win.

Some recent line juggling has ignited a surge for the Chicago Blackhawks and Patrick Kane, as they head into a matchup against the Minnesota Wild, who have struggled on the road.

It actually looked like they might script another comeback when Brassard pulled the club to within 4-2 at 16:39 of the second. There were no All-Star games in 2010 and 2014 because of the Olympics, and 2013 because of the lockout. Starter Corey Crawford is still on injured reserve with an upper-body injury that will keep him out indefinitely.

Things did not look promising for the Wild early on.

"I don't think in any circumstances we need more saves", said Phaneuf. "But now we've had to - and the Blackhawks have had to - go in December and say hey, whoa, if we don't start winning and playing our best hockey now, we're going to be left by the wayside".

"You win and you lose as an entire team", said Boucher.
