Wild Make History

by john on May 8, 2003

For the second series in a row the Minnesota Wild go down three games to one in a best-of-seven series and come back with three straight victories to win the series, this time in a stunning 4-2 victory in game seven over Vancouver. Most impressively, in both series wins against Colorado and Vancouver the final game was won on the road, against heavily favored opponents.

It’s the first time in NHL history that a team has come back from two 3-1 series deficits in one year. An impressive accomplishment for a franchise in only it’s third year of existence.

Next up for the Wild are the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, an amazing story themselves who as an underdog have knocked out two of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup this year in Detroit and Dallas. The Wild will have the home ice advantage in this series and hopefully they will take care of business and move on quickly to the finals.

Congratulations and good luck Minnesota Wild!

The Wild have done an impressive job this season and I’m pleased, not being a big fan of teams that move away from the cities that supported them. Except for the Lakers. On the other hand, the Ducks are still eking out victories. Think the Wild are coming back from another 0-2 start? Hmmm….
