Playoff Update The "Cult" has done it again. They beat the Canucks 5-1 in Minnesota to tie the series at 3 and for a Game 7. I'm beginning to wonder if the Canucks have just collapsed because the Wild aren't that good. Poor Cloutier's going through "it" again. The Canucks took 8 penalties last night, which wasn't very smart since the Wild are a league leading 14-for-55 (25%) on the PP. Minnesota went 3-for-5 with the man advantage last night. The Wild would be the first team in NHL history to come back from a 3-1 deficit two times in the same playoffs if they win Game 7. In only their 3rd year too. They also have won 5 elimination games this year. Pretty impressive. I watched the first period and it was mostly Vancouver, up until about the 10 minute mark. After that, it looked to be going more the Wild's way, though both teams came really close to scoring a couple times. Gaborik has a league leading 17 playoff points while the Canuck's big line has been quiet this series. Game 7 is tonight in Vancouver @ 10 ET.
