In the State of Hockey, it’s hard to forget how fantastic Game 3 was Tuesday night.
It was a close game for 40 minutes until some highlight reel goals gave Minnesota the momentum to surge towards a 4-0 win. We have a series on our hands now, folks.
After a two-day break that even Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo said felt like a long time, the Wild went right back to work today at Xcel Energy Center.
After a must-win Game 3, the Minnesota Wild took a much-needed day off. With the victory, the Wild pulled to within a game, 2-1, in the best-of-seven Second Round matchup against the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Minnesota Wild doesn’t need a pair of ruby red skates to remind it there’s no place like home. Tonight the club looks to climb back into its Second Round series against the Chicago Blackhawks at Xcel Energy Center.
In the words of Charlie Coyle, “we’ve been here before.” And it wasn’t that long ago.
Hours before the Kentucky Derby was set to start, the Wild was back on the ice at Chicago’s United Center for a swift practice the day after falling a furlong behind the Blackhawks in the Second Round race to four wins.
Last season, the Minnesota Wild’s postseason hopes were flashed fried in a quick five games by the eventual Stanley Cup Champion, Chicago Blackhawks. If revenge is a dish best served cold, the Wild looks to turn the United Center into a meat locker in Game 1 against the Blackhawks tonight.
There’s nothing quite like a Game 7 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Two teams evenly matched through six grueling contests, leaving it all out on the ice for a winner-take-all elimination game.
