This loss left them red-faced and embarrassed.
Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook, a healthy scratch in Chicago's 8-2 victory in Ottawa on Tuesday, was back in the lineup and celebrated with his first goal since opening night. Jared Spurgeon scored the other goal, while Ryan Suter dished out two assists.
However, Schmaltz roofed the rebound of Sharp's shot over Condon on the power play at 17:33 to make it 5-2, and Jan Rutta wired a one-timer from the left circle with the man advantage at 19:07 for a 6-2 cushion.
With four players sitting out because of injuries, Tyler Johnson not expected to dress and James Johnson suspended by the league for throwing punches in a victory over Toronto, the Heat showed up at Bankers Life Fieldhouse expecting only seven players to be available for their second road game in two nights. "You just never want to play those types of games". It's by far the most frustrating thing about watching them this year. We'll see how that plays out in the decision-making with goalies. "At the end of the day, the better team won".
Captain Erik Karlsson wasn't going to point the finger at Anderson or Condon.
"We'll get more information after Friday's game", coach Nate McMillan said.

Royal commentator Alastair Bruce said the head has to be kept still when wearing it and the Queen agreed: "Yes". The tin was then buried in a deep hole beneath a sally port - an emergency exit from Windsor Castle .
The Senators talked Monday about improving their play in the second then allowed the Hawks to pull out to a 6-2 lead after 40 minutes. But thanks to some stellar goaltending by Devan Dubnyk (34 saves on the night) they only faced a one-goal deficit. It really should have been 4-0, but as Mike Milbury kept saying on the telecast that the Hawks were letting them stick around and the opportunity for 2 points against a divisional opponent was lost on Wednesday.
Mark Stone and Derick Brassard scored for the Senators.
Over the span of 4:39, Craig Anderson surrendered three goals on four shots. Stone's 18th of the season on a backhander by Forsberg at 10:35 of the second cut the Hawks lead to 4-1 and brought some life into the building.
"We knew it was going to be tough here".
"I don't think in any circumstance that we need more saves".
Toews' rebound goal at 9:53 sent Anderson to the bench for the night's remainder. He added a goal for good measure in the third period, after Nick Schmaltz clanged what would have been his third goal off the post. The Wild, in contrast, are just 1-5 in their last six road games.
Minnesota was completely dominated in the opening 20 minutes as Chicago spent almost the entire period cycling in its zone, attempting 41 of the game's first 52 total shot attempts. The Wild, who are in their final game before a bye week, could have a little momentum after rallying Tuesday to grab a valuable point in the standings during an eventual 3-2 OT loss against the Calgary Flames. "We made mistakes. We made mistakes in key areas and our goaltenders have been solid".
