The Avalanche withstood a relentless firestorm from the Minnesota Wild and won 3-2 to take a 3-2 lead in the best of 7 series. The Wild came out hitting hard and trying to do everything to shake up the Avalanche, but they couldn't and the Avalanche scored the first goal. The Wild evened it up with a power play goal late in the 1st period.
The second period was played to a draw, but the Avalanche came out and won the third period by getting two quick goals from Wolski and Stastny. The Wild got their second goal with under two seconds left.
The Avalanche played strong and smart and won the game. They didn't take any stupid penalties and kept at it.
They have a chance to close-out the series on Saturday night. Let's hope they can do that!
