The Minnesota Wild trail the Chicago Blackhawks two games to none in the Western Conference semifinals after losing Game 2 on Sunday.

KSTP's Chris Long was in the locker room for postgame from United Center. The Wild have come back from series deficits before, but this time its against the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Coach Mike Yeo and players Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu, and Kyle Brodziak talked after Game 2 about staying positive, home ice advantage and what it will take to get back in the series.

Historically, teams that fall behind 2-0 have a 14 percent series win rate.

Game 3 is Tuesday night at Xcel Energy Center.
