26 Comments

You don’t often see Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter making a mistake.

But his giveaway in the neutral zone led to the Colorado Avalanche opening the scoring just before the midway point of the second period on a beautiful deflection from Cody McLeod. The goal came with the Wild on a power play and knocking on the door for the first goal of this game.

This lead didn’t last too long. Matt Moulson scored his first of this post-season just 1:13 later to tie the game for Minnesota.

Here is the Moulson goal.

The Avalanche went into the second period with a 2-1 lead, as it looks to gain a 3-2 lead in the series.
