No quarter, no hope, no doubt: The Chicago Blackhawks vaporized the Wild and escaped the first round of the postseason for the first time in three years.

There was the small issue of Minnesota’s history of rebounding from massive playoff deficits, but it was no issue at all in a 5-1 demolition by the Hawks in Game 5 at the United Center, making it a 4-1 series win and a second-round date with the Sharks or the Red Wings beginning next week.

Marian Hossa scored twice and Marcus Kruger, Andrew Shaw and Patrick Sharp added one goal apiece in an emphatic performance that never permitted the Wild much hope at all of extending to a Game 6. The Hawks had been here before, too, having failed to close out a series on home ice during their Stanley Cup run in 2010, but that bit of history wouldn’t repeat itself Thursday.
