St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Jason Zucker scored just over two minutes into overtime to give the Minnesota Wild their first win in the Western Conference playoffs, outlasting Chicago 3-2 on Sunday at the Xcel Energy Center.

Zucker used a tough angle shot to beat Blackhawks netminder Corey Crawford 2:15 into overtime. Chicago now leads the series 2-1.

Zach Parise scored his first goal of the playoffs in the third period with a backhander that beat Crawford in the upper right corner. His goal gave Minnesota a 2-1 lead.

Chicago would answer though. Duncan Keith tied the game at two a piece with less than three minutes to play.

Pierre-Marc Bouchard netted the game up at one a piece in the first period to get the Wild on the board. Bouchard got a rebound and put away the backhander.

The Wild and Blackhawks meet in game 4 on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. at the Xcel Energy Center.
