Chicago, IL (NNCNOW.com) --- Michael Frolik and Patrick Sharp each scored two goals on Friday night as the Chicago Blackhawks won 5-2 over the Minnesota Wild, taking a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven first round playoff series.

Devin Setoguchi and Marco Scandella scored the goals for Minnesota, but the Wild never led in the game that could have tied the series before it shifts to the Xcel Energy Center on Sunday.

Josh Harding made 43 saves in the losing effort, starting his second straight postseason game for Minnesota after Niklas Backstrom was injured in warmups before game one.

Game three of the first round series is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, and it can be seen on live television in the Northland on KBJR6 and Range 11.
