  • Wild @ Avalanche Preview, Game 7: Been There, Done That


    Minnesota has been there and done that in game sevens. The Wild have played in two game sevens before and are victorious in both games. Mike Yeo has also been there and done that in game sevens. He successfully guided the Aeros to victories in game seven scenarios on two separate occasions. Minnesota has four players in their active lineup that have played in a game seven before. (Heatley, Parise, McCormick and Pominville) Meanwhile, in Denver, the kids just woke up from their nap.

    Kuemper ranks second in the NHL with a 1.53 GAA and fourth with a .934 SV% this postseason, stopping 99-of-106 shots in parts of five games. In Game 4, he saw this postseason’s shutout streak end at 124:11, setting a franchise-playoff record for longest shutout streak in one season. With the Wild dominating the better part of this series, I don't see the Wild dropping this game, despite the favorable number for teams with home-ice. Its Lord Stanley for god-sakes. Crazier things will happen. Like blowing two goal leads... Chicago awaits the winner, and the Wild are ready. First, its time to put the kids to bed for good, and put the friendly Varmolov and Roy packing.
