What a WILD ride!
After a quiet first few games from the Minnesota Wild's offensive stars in Kevin Fiala & Kirill Kaprizov, the boys are back! Though defensively the Minnesota Wild have been solid all series, their star players were unable to solve Marc Andre Fleury in the first few games. However, they cracked the code in game 6 to force a game 7 with tremendous help from goaltender Cam Talbot who earned a shut-out in the Wild's victory.
With Selke-deserving two-way forward Joel Eriksson Ek healthy after a scary collision with a goal post late in game 6, the Minnesota Wild have all the tools to get past the Vegas Golden Knights tonight and advance to the second round where the Colorado Avalanche await them!
In Episode 157 of The Sota Pod (POST-GAME SHOW edition) Josh Leddy of Back Channel Brewing joins Hoppy to talk about the Wild and Vegas series, as well as The New York Islanders defeating the Pittsburgh Penguins, and other NHL news and notes!
