Wild Season Ends in 5-4 OT Loss to Vancouver
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Christopher Tanev’s slap shot just 11 seconds into overtime gave the Vancouver Canucks a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Wild to win the best-of-five Western Conference qualifying series in four games.
The Canucks will face either Dallas or St. Louis in a best-of-seven series next week.
Bo Horvat scored the third tying goal of the game for Vancouver, with 5:46 remaining in regulation.
Luke Kunin, Eric Staal, Joel Eriksson Ek and Nico Sturm had the goals for the Wild, who squandered a two-goal advantage over a 3:05 span midway through the second period.
