The Wild deserved that win. Two very dirty goals by the Preds(were they trying to break Harding's hand????) that were allowed by the lousy linesmen....yep, way to win. Wild played great tonight, gritty, fast, and attacking. It's just terrible that the ref forgot how to blow his whistle. Can someone give him a lesson in the finer art of whistle blowing?

ARRey sez: The Predators won the game for the Predators. They are light years ahead of the Wild from the head coach, to the goaltenders, to the forwards, to the defensemen, to the bottom of their hearts!

You had the lead, heck you had a comfortable lead, the coach needs to have the players play with the lead and respect the puck, no risk taking, etc. They have to press and that will open up scoring chances. Obviously Mister Yeo knows that. I am confident Mister Yeo will get in the boys head about such things someday, but were not in any hurry

The linesmen guys? Cmon, that was a pathetic and putrid end to the game and it had nothing to do with the zebras!

Same old, same old. Are Wild fans really holding their breath they make the playoffs this year? Please!!! The answer is "no" they won't make the playoffs. This year is no different. The Wild organization here 13 years and only 3 playoffs seasons! Good grief. Worse yet, half of the whole NHL goes to the playoffs each year. It's time Mn deserves a real team.

Wild were massively outworked in the 3rd ... and choked away a 3 goal lead. I can't blame the refs for 4 goals in 1 period. If one or two calls in a game beat you ... then you didn't play well enough to win anyway. Preds didn't quit. The home club did.
