Wild eliminated from the playoffs.
The Wild wrapped up the 2006-07 season on Thursday with a 4-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks in game five of their Stanley Cup playoff series, reports WCCO.
Chris Pronger scored just 1:02 into the game to give the Ducks the lead. Marian Gaborik scored a short-handed goal in the second period, but the Duck's Ryan Getzlaf scored less than a minute later to reclaim the lead for Anaheim. A goal by Corey Perry put the Ducks ahead half way throught the third period and an empty net goal by Travis Moen, with 57 seconds left, sealed the fate of the Wild, said the Pioneer Press.
KARE 11 said the Wild performed poorly on the power play during the series, generating just two goals in 27 chances. They failed to capitalize on an important 5-on-3 advantage during game 5.
According to the Star Tribune, the three stars of the game were: Chris Pronger, Anaheim, Corey Perry, Anaheim and Marian Gaborik, Minnesota.
