Wild lose in game six
In the Minnesota Wild’s final game Saturday night against the Colorado Avalanche, the Pioneer Press reports early distress followed by second-act revenge, to end in a painful defeat.
The Wild won the Northwest Division Championship, and home-ice advantage only to suffer the same first round playoff defeat as last season, according to the Pioneer Press.
The Wild dominated in game five only to lose in 3-2, game six should have been different.
The Wild’s Aaron Voros tied the score up during Saturday’s game six in Colorado, but ultimately the Wild could not beat Colorado’s goalie.
"In a series like this, a hot goalie can take you out, and I think that's what happened in this series," the Wild's Brian Rolston said. "It's definitely disappointing, but it wasn't like last year. We felt like we were in this one." (Pioneer Press)
