Games 3 , 4 . Dallas at Minnesota

Games 3 & 4

Wild faithful pack into Excel Energy Center for Game 3 on an extra high as word comes out that two franchise legends, Martin Brodeur and Martin St. Louis are both to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Game 3 is a tight back and forth affair with the Stars taking a narrow 1-0 lead into the third. Wild pop in two in the third, but Ryan Kesler ties it with a few minutes left. Game goes to OT as Howard makes a great save in the last minutes of regulation to keep the score tied at 2. Mark Stone is the hero with the overtime marker and the Wild continue their incredible ride to a 3-0 series lead, one win away from the finals.

Game 4 starts out with more of the same as Patrick Eaves continues to prove to be a great trade deadline find giving the Wild an early lead. The rest is all Dallas with a couple of goals by Atkinson, one by Miller and Backstrom for a 4-1 final. Back to Dallas for game 5…

Dallas poured on the pressure outshooting Minnesota 43 to 29. CAM ATKINSON found the net twice for Dallas. SERGEI BOBROVSKY was outstanding in goal. He gave up just a lone goal while facing 29 shots. Other goal scorers were NICKLAS BACKSTROM and J.T. MILLER for Dallas and PATRICK EAVES for Minnesota.

Games 3 and 4. Avalanche at the Shark tank

Game 3:
After winning a pair of hard fought games where they barely managed to hold on despite opening up early leads, the Sharks attempt to keep the Av’s on the ropes. The Av’s kill off 3 straight PK’s in the first, and the period ends 0-0. Kucherov & Rackell get feisty at the start of 2, and Kuch gets the extra 2 but it’s the Sharks turn for the PK to stand tall. SJ sniper blows a shot by Rinne that he didn’t have a chance on, and the Sharks lead 1-0 at the end of the 2nd period. The Av’s come out flying but Scott Darling stands tall and the Sharks prevail at home to go up 3-0. Both goalies played great (5/5 for Rinne and 4/4 for Darling).

The Av’s will go all out in game 4. Can they keep the Sharks from making a cinderalla run back to the finals after several disappointing seasons?

Game 4:

SJ has the Av’s on the ropes – how will both teams respond? The Sharks offense comes alive, and Tarasenko scores early at the 4:19 mark. The hits keep coming with Kessel scoring 2 minutes later, and Tarasenko scoring again late in the period to up a 3 goal lead. Just like games 1 & 2, the Av’s regroup and respond with a nice goal from Richard Rackell to pull it within 2. Unfortunately for the visitors, Phil the Thrill Kessel re-establishes the 3 goal lead seven minutes later, and Scott Darling is playing LIGHTS OUT. With Kyle Palmeiri in the box, Barkov gets an insurance goal on the PP, and that’s all she wrote. Oscar Klefbom adds another PP goal late for a 6-1 final.

The Av’s definitely deserved a better fate. Darling goes 15/15 on GR’s at home over the 2 game stretch in what were pretty much dead even games. Pekka Rinne goes 10/14 over the 2 game stretch, which in most cases would at get a split and bring the series back to the Mile High city.

Congrats to Kevin for a great season with a really strong squad!
