Winning game 1 of the Minnesota Wild’s first round Stanley Cup playoffs matchup with the Vegas Golden Knights was huge.
Winning game 2 would be even huger.
The task might be even more difficult if the Golden Knights’ leading goal scorer Max Pacioretty makes his return from injury. He’s been listed as a game-time decision.
Other than Patches, expect little to no changes for either team - meaning another night in the pressbox for Zach Parise. Cam Talbot will start for the WIld in net, while Marc-Andre Fleury should get the goal again for Vegas.
