Video: Minnesota’s Improbable Rally
You could have knocked me over with a feather when I heard the final score. Like many hockey fans, I shut off the Wild-Sharks game from San Jose Thursday night when the score was 3-0, Sharks. I figured that San Jose would cruise to another home win, and the Wild would limp their way to another in a long line of tough losses. The Wild, however, had other plans. With one of the more incredible comebacks in franchise history, Minnesota picked themselves up off the mat and found a way to win. The 4-3 overtime triumph pulls the Wild within one point of a Western Conference playoff spot, and they have games in hand on each of the three teams (Edmonton, Dallas, and Anaheim) that are tied at 68 points. Here is the NHL.com highlight package, and you'll want to pay special attention to Minnesota's tying goal, at around the 2:25 mark.
