Knights lose game 1. Still a long series and all but this one has big upset energy.

And Minny wins it in OT after a forced giveaway from their prized signing.

The Wild actually had a 5-1-2 record against Vegas this season and Vegas has never had a regulation win in Minny. Vegas is 5-10-1 all time against them....well 5-11-1 now.

That was a fun game. Both goalies played extremely well. Talbot may have been worked harder, but Fleury had some saves that were mindblowing.

Shots were in Vegas’ favour but it felt like Minny had the better scoring chances.

Yes, there were some serious miscues on defense for Vegas.

Minnesota scores and Vegas replies 18 seconds later with their first of the series in the 2nd period of Game 2.

Minnesota is outshooting Vegas 26-16.

Well that ices it!

Also... Cam Talbot? Why are people like Dom L. rooting for Minny besides the cool third jersey? Is this like a hipster hockey pick?

It would be the most interesting upset of this round.

The stuff Vegas gets away with is unreal.  Reavers just runs around the ice trying to injure guys on every play.
