The NHL has announced the schedule for the second round best-of-seven Stanley Cup Playoff series between the Minnesota Wild and the Chicago Blackhawks. Chicago will have the home ice advantage in the series hosting Games 1 and 2 (and Games 5 & 7 if necessary).
WARNING: The following video may cause goosebumps and an intense sense of pride in the State of Hockey. Soak up this fan video from yesterday's game inside the Xcel Energy Center when Nino Niedereitter scored that late empty net goal against the Blues.
The Minnesota Wild sealed the fate of the Central Division Champion St. Louis Blues with a 4-1 Game 6 win this afternoon in St. Paul -- giving the Wild the 4-games-to-2 series win; eliminating the Blues in the first found for the third season in a row. Zach Parise scored twice and goalie Devan Dubnyk made 30 saves.
The Minnesota Wild lead the St. Louis Blues 3 game to 2 in their opening round best-of-seven Stanley Cup Playoff series, with Game 6 this afternoon in St. Paul. A Minnesota win will eliminate the Blues; and propel the Wild into the second round to face the Chicago Blackhawks.
The Minnesota Wild beat the St. Louis Blues 4-1 last night on the road at the Scotttrade Center, giving the Wild a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series -- and setting the stage for Game 6 and a series-clinching opportunity Sunday afternoon at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
For Minnesota Wild fans, Monday's 3-0 win over the Blues was pure bliss. Wednesday night's 6-1 loss was the opposite of that. Tonight's Game 5 in St. Louis will play a large part in steering this best-of-series one way or another.
