The Minnesota Wild have turned their home ice into a deafening, discouraging place for opponents to play in the playoffs.
Nino Niederreiter hesitated for just a moment after scoring the winning goal, not sure if what he just saw actually occurred.
The Minnesota Wild are a little weary and worn out after winning a grueling seven-game series.
With a playoff spot already secured and a journeyman goalie starting, another loss by the Minnesota Wild to the St. Louis Blues seemed inevitable.
Nino Niederreiter snagged the puck off the boards and rushed toward the net, deftly setting up a wrist shot with a slick deke to each side.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Minor league call-up Darcy Kuemper looked totally different than he did in his two other appearances with the Minnesota Wild this season.
"I think our heart made the difference tonight," said Niederreiter, whose team captured its first playoff series since 2003.
"As a little kid, it's exactly the moment you dream about," Niederreiter said. "I'm very happy and fortunate that it happened tonight."
