  • Wild eliminated after 'Crazy' 3rd period.



    To have this series extended to six games was more than most expected. But fans have every right to be upset with the game being hardly competitive.

    The best chance of the period, let alone the game, came when Pominville passed wing to wing to Niederreiter, who was behind everyone on the Stars. Nino tried to go underneath the blocker, but the puck didn't get high enough and was blocked by the right pad of Lehtonen. Instead, within in the final minute of the period, Jamie Benn extended the Stars' lead to four, when he snapped a shot in the upper right corner over Dubnyk's glove.

    The offseason will be an active one for the Wild. With the draft in which the Wild owns just a 1st, a 4th, and two 7th round picks, there will likely be some wheeling and dealing from the GM that the owner recently gave a vote of confidence to. There will be a coaching search as Minnesota should consider a lot of candidates this summer. With the prospects from the NCAA recently signed to the Iowa Wild, training camp will likely be an active one as well.

    Don't go away from Hockey Wilderness as we break down this series, this season, and what's next for this team all offseason long.

    Thanks to our great community of readers for another great season!
