St. Paul, Minn. • The unbeaten Chicago Blackhawks gave the Minnesota Wild a significant early season test of their upgraded team.

They held up quite well, from the early goalie switch to the late-game fatigue.

Matt Cullen scored 90 seconds into the game and again in a shootout to lift the Wild to a 3-2 victory on Wednesday, the first loss in seven games for the Blackhawks.

Cullen's snap shot in the third round slipped between Corey Crawford's legs, and Chicago's Patrick Sharp then hit the crossbar. The Blackhawks and San Jose were the only teams to start 6-0 this year. The Wild improved to 4-1 at home, enjoying significant production from their second and third lines for the second straight night.
