Just when it appeared Sunday’s Stadium Series game couldn’t get any worse for the Blackhawks, it did.
Michal Rozsival received a game misconduct (and an ejection) after this hit on the Wild’s Jason Zucker during the second period.
The hit resulted in a five-minute power play for Minnesota and Zucker was carted off the ice.

Chicago trails 4-0 after two periods, thanks to goals from Matt Dumba, Thomas Vanek, Nino Niederreiter and Jason Pominville.
And you can be sure the Department of Player Safety will be taking a look at that hit by Rozsival. #Blackhwks— Mark Lazerus (@MarkLazerus) February 21, 2016
Reviewing the hit, I wouldn't expect any extra discipline for Rozsival. Zucker had just given up the puck, and it was mostly body contact.— Mark Lazerus (@MarkLazerus) February 21, 2016
