Edmundson's OT winner sends Allen, Blues past Wild 2-1

Jake Allen was forced to make save after save, and it didn't seem like St. Louis was at all concerned about moving the puck up ice towards Devan Dubnyk's crease. "Right now we're going to go on the road and we'll be ready for Game 3". "He's making some big, timely saves, which gives us a lot of momentum". They have three goals in three games as Allen has stopped 114 of 117 shots for a.974 save percentage. The rookie played in 39 regular-season games, scoring four goals.

"We're real happy we got both wins in here, but I know that's not a team that's gonna quit", said Yeo, who coached the Wild for parts of five seasons before he was sacked in February of last season. "I don't really get caught up in it, but it's nice to see support from the fans". Dubnyk has allowed just two goals in each of the three games, stopping 92.3 percent of the shots he's faced, but the Wild have lost all three games. "I don't think they would change the way they were playing if it was the first period, but if we had a one-goal lead in the third period, it might make a little bit of difference". "But that's fine: we got back on the horse". Yet Allen has fared well on the penalty kill, even with the defense limiting the Wild to less than a dozen shots on goals in power plays throughout the series.

The Wild had an opportunity Sunday to gets themselves back in their first-round playoff series with St. Louis. It was his third career playoff goal and his first goal this season since February 2.

The Minnesota Wild need a victory here in order to force a game five on Saturday. Vladimir Tarasenko's incredible shot and strength. He popped a high shot into the upper webbing of the net for his second goal of the series. Yes, it's mathematically possible as we have seen teams rally from 3-0 down twice in the last eight years to win a seven game series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

After two games, the Minnesota Wild have given away their home-ice advantage. Joel Edmundson had his second goal of the series in the second period while Zach Parise also scored his second goal of the series in the loss. Sergei Bobrovsky had 42 saves.

Radulov, who got the overtime victor in Game 2 on Friday night after Tomas Plekanec tied it with 18 seconds left in regulation, has two goals and three assists in the past two games.

The Wild finally tied the score at 12:59 of the second period.

Playoff Preview: Warriors (1) - Trail Blazers…
It's this momentum that has made Lillard more confident the Blazers can take on anyone, including the league-leading Warriors. Championship teams have that one key contributor that isn't one of the superstars that steps up each season.

A 3-0 series lead against a team that many national pundits predicted would dispatch the Blues-it's a remarkable feat.

This is a team built to score gritty goals around the blue paint. Minnesota will not beat Allen with perimeter shots or by firing pucks into his chest, as Spurgeon did late in Game 2. He won 11 of his last 15 starts before the playoffs, giving up a total of only 26 goals.

Blues goalie Jake Allen has been one of the bigger surprises through two games in the playoffs.

But the 2017 Blues are a tougher, more driven opponent than those counterfeit Avs, and they smell blood with a chance to vanquish their favored opponents Wednesday night at home. He made some great saves like the second-period robbery of Charlie Coyle.

The Blues now lead the series 3-0, which means they could not only clinch this round of the playoffs but sweep it Wednesday. Game 4 is Tuesday night in San Jose.

Neither did the harsh reality that Minnesota outshot the Blues 42-17 from the halfway mark of the first period. It's tempting to be watching this series through your fingers, expecting more of the same, but this Blues team isn't like those squads.
