      • A nice come-from-behind victory for the Wild tonight, in the second game of a back to back against the best team in the Eastern Conference.
      • It was the third game in four nights for the Wild, and I thought they looked generally overmatched tonight but they still won the possession game.
      • Koivu and Parise +9 Corsi, Coyle +5. Even or -1 zone starts too. #DoWorkSon
      • Minnesota was down to 5.5% chance to win the game late in the third but they pulled it out. I’d have to do a little bit of checking but they have had a number of games lately where their expected win percent was way down there in the single digits. Not sure if that’s indicative of some team skill or not but it’s hard to argue there isn’t something there, that wasn’t there in previous seasons. And this is coming from a stat guy!

      • The straw man argument you always hear is, “well, stats can’t explain away 100% of the game, therefore they are worthless.” Any analyst will tell you of course there is no way to quantify the entirety of a sport or a single game…that’s why we enjoy them as entertainment!
      • It would have been easy for this team to coast through this game but they looked impressive in the flurry of the opening period and the third period equalizer.
      • Next up is the Blues which should be another really tough game, though STL may be resting some of its players. The Wild needs that game more than the Blues
