Minnesota would be victorious in a Game One for the first time since 2003 and eight playoff series. It was a huge win in a huge series opener and the Wild take back home ice advantage.
With as much concentration there was on special teams, the Wild won this round. They were 2-for-4 on the power play, though the second goal was with an empty net, and the NHL;s best penalty kill was fantastic in killing off both penalties they took. Minnesota needs to keep the pedal to the metal in the third while having the lead. Going into a defensive shell is not something they should do the moment the teams come out of the locker room to start the final stanza.
