Windies bat first in champs trophy final
GOLDEN HOPE, Minn. – After finishing in 11th place last year with the Minnesota Wild, it seemed the hockey club would never make the play우리카지노offs again in 2017-18.
But after taking down the Los Angeles Kings in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final on Tuesday, the Minnesota Wild became only the fourth team to advance to the Stanley Cup Final since the team relocated from Los Angeles.
The victory capped a season in which the Vikings added another playoff berth to their resume. The win was the second in the postseason for the Wild with the other coming against the Chicago Blackhawks in 2011.
The Wild has now won eight of nine regular season games and 14 of its last 15 to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2008-09.
The St. Louis Blues, who fell 3-2 to the Chicago Blackhawks at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night, became the third team to advance to the Stanley Cup Final since it relocated from the No더킹카지노rth American Hockey League in 1988.
Minnesota’s run continues as rookie goalie Devan Dubnyk was excellent in Game 6 on Tuesday for a 1.60 goals-against average to beat the Chicago team for the first time since 1988.
“He’s doing what he can to carry us and make us play and execute in front of him at the moment, so I’m excited for the season,” said forward Matt Dumba.
Goaltending coach Mike Yeo and coach Mike Yeo look ahead to Monday night’s game against the Washington Capitals (TV: CSN-DC & Radio: TSN 1200) in the first of three meetings between the two teams in the series.
Dubnyk has posted a 2.19 goals-against average and.924 save percentage in 10 playoff games this season.
He earned his second win at Madison Square Garden this postseason after allowing two goals on 15 shots in Game 3 of the conference semifinals to the Anaheim Ducks.
“You never want to go into this series thinking we were going to make it, we lost in the first two periods, but we wanted to take things one game at a time,” Yeo said. “I’m really proud of our guys and really proud of the whole process. They came back strong and fought.”
“I was trying to stay in my own little bubble, stay focused. It’s my job to make sure I do what I can do, if needed.”
