Game 4 is Wednesday night.
While the Wild will try to become the fifth team in National Hockey League history to stage a 3-0 comeback, they take some solace in the fact that they have played well so far, losing, essentially, three one-goal games.
Dave Schwartz caught up with the players after practice.
The Wild finished second in the Western Conference and, under the format, would have played the Calgary Flames in the first round. You can't go out there and think, 'I'm going to score.' We've got to play the same way defensively.
Wild coach Bruce Boudreau cautioned against looking any further than Game 5 on Saturday.
Maybe it will be Charlie Coyle, who has tallied a goal three straight games in St. Louis.
EU's Donald Tusk questioned in Polish investigation
Former Polish PM, called the case a "political witch-hunt" as he left the prosecution office after a nine hour-long hearing. Though having immunity, he chose not to invoke it and made himself available for questioning.
He maintained that same save percentage through the first three games, but the Wild was stymied time and time again by Allen in the other crease.
While the Blues entered Game 4 at home with plenty of momentum, they didn't exactly blow the Wild of any of the first three games despite winning all of them. "It's going to still be an uphill battle". "The decision-making was a little slower today".
There's a good chance the Blues will see it happen again at some point in the postseason, and if they don't, it's either very good news - they're up by so many goals late in the game that the opponents don't even bother - or very bad news - they're trailing and it's the Blues who are pulling their goalie. "Another tight one. Tonight, we end up losing because of those details".
Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau knows the cards are stacked against them, but Boudreau and his team can not walk away from the table in this high stakes situation.
BOSTON (AP) - Bobby Ryan scored early in the third period, Craig Anderson stopped 22 shots and Ottawa grabbed a 3-1 lead in its first-round playoff series. "It starts with Duby, he was outstanding, and the whole team was just fighting for every battle, every puck". Both series went to Game 7's and while both were won by the Blues, that extra expended energy may have taken its took on them in the third-round loss to the San Jose Sharks.
They held on to win and force a Game 5 in St. Paul, thanks in large part to a shutout from Devan Dubnyk.
Regardless, the only thing that now matters is that the Blues are up 3-0 and need to take advantage of the opportunity to close out the series, get some needed rest, and avoid any injuries. We have to do the same thing [in Game 5] Saturday, because everybody in this room still believes we can do it. It was the first time since Thanksgiving that Granlund and Koivu played on separate lines. Wild C Erik Haula (upper body) was scratched and was replaced by Joel Eriksson Ek.
