The Minnesota Wild saved themselves from being on the brink of elimination earlier this week, and now they will be hoping for another big win to draw even with the Colorado Avalanche before the action shifts back to the Rocky Mountains this weekend.
The Wild got a lift from rookie Mikael Gunland in overtime of Game 3 to keep the series interesting, and his teammates are thrilled with the way he has matured on the ice this postseason.
“From where he was last year to where he is now, it’s incredible the leaps that he’s taken,” teammate Zach Parise said, via ESPN.com.
“For me, sitting next to him and watching him evolve, get more comfortable in the room and get more comfortable on the ice and see him get rewarded like that, it’s awesome.”
They will be hoping for some of that same magic on Thursday night.
