Kirill Kaprizov, Zach Parise, and Jordan Greenway helped build a 3-1 lead in the first period — it was a lead they would cling to as the Golden Knights did all they could to even the score. The middle frame saw Vegas outshoot the Wild 22-1, but in the end it wasn’t enough.
According to the NHL, 29 teams have rallied from 3-1 series deficits since 1942 to advance. The Golden Knights were the last team to blow a 3-1 series lead when the Sharks rallied in 2019.
“We knew this wasn’t going to be easy coming in,” said Golden Knights head coach Peter DeBoer. “If anybody had said at the start of the series we’re going to give you an opportunity to go into Minnesota in Game 6 and win the series, and Game 7 is going to be at home, we would’ve taken that. It’s basically down to two games, and we’ve got to find a way to win one of them.”
