Shut up already, you God damned mindless idiot.special teams…this game reminds me so much of the Mankato gopher game in the frozen four. You knew what the blues were gonna do and yet they shoved their game right down your throat and you couldn’t stop them. Terrible power play, terrible penalties taken by greenway, terrible penalty kill. Yeah you can say Husso played well, but so many shots were from the outside and not high danger chances. Not to mention all the blocks. You just can’t make it up with the wild having the 5 most points in the NHL and they gonna get bounced in 5 games. Minnesota sports to perfection.
Convert some scoring chances, better goaltending, better zone entry D. These would help. The Wild definitely had some chances to score. But they also did not have the “zip” they had all year. They need to come out flying Wednesday and Talbot needs to slam the door.Ugly game. St. Louis definitely has our number.
I'm a big Spurgeon fan but if I was in charge he'd get 3 games minimum.
Wild captain Jared Spurgeon fined $5,000 for cross-checking Blues' Pavel Buchnevich in Game 1
Dumb move by a team Captain. Should have been a suspension honestly. Spurgeon is one of my favorite players and a clean player historically. It was a dirty hit and warranted a suspension. By not suspending him, I’m not sure how they officiate these types of plays moving forward.
Wild once again showed they are mentally weaker than the Blues - Time for the whole team to grow up.
