The Minnesota Wild hopes to even up the playoff series with the St. Louis Blues Wednesday night.

Minnesota will again play at home for Game 2 after being shut out 4-0 during Game 1 Monday night in St. Paul.

This isn’t the position the Wild was hoping to be in after the first game after securing home-ice advantage in the final game of the regular season.

During Monday’s game, St. Louis was awarded a penalty shot, but goalie Marc-Andre Fleury made a huge save, which was about it for Wild highlights.

They then allowed David Perron to score a hat trick, and the Wild finished 0-6 on power plays on the night.

Alex Goligoski replaces Dmitry Kulikov and will play in Game 2 for the Wild.

Meanwhile, the Blues scored twice on their six power plays and added another just moments after a power play had expired.

In addition, Jared Spurgeon was fined $5,000 by the NHL and was fortunate to avoid a suspension for cross-checking Pavel Buchnevich during the game.
