The Barnburner Redefined

Well, that was a bit of a tilt now wasn't it.

After trailing the Predators 3-1 and then 6-3, the Wild came back with two third period goals to tie the game at 6, survived a bullshit call that awarded a penalty shot to Paul Karyia during the 4-on-4 overtime, and then won in the shootout after 8 skaters went in 1-on-1 with the goalies. Niklas Backstrom came in to relieve a so-so Manny Fernandez and definitely saved the day.

In three Wild/Predators games this season, there have been 41 goals scored, and the Wild are now 7-0 in overtime.

It is now bedtime.
