Hossa, Kane & Olczyk Before Game 3 In MN (Videos)Tuesday night, in Game 4 of their Western Conference first round series, the number one seeded Chicago Blackhawks defeated the eighth seeded Minnesota Wild, by the score of 3-0. The shutout gave Chicago a commanding 3-1 series lead, with Game 5 scheduled for Thursday night, back home at the United Center. The heavily favored Blackhawks now appear to be in great shape to advance to the conference semifinals.

A few hours before the game, on a beautiful 77-degree day in St. Paul, Minnesota, iFolloSports.com was on hand providing a behind the scenes look at the Blackhawks, outside The Saint Paul Hotel, in downtown St. Paul. Below is a series of videos showing members of the team, as they boarded their charter buses, for the 0.5-mile trip to the Xcel Energy Center, the Wild's home arena.
