Peter DeBoer put it succinctly after Game 6 when the Golden Knights failed to close out the Wild for the second straight game.
“This is what it’s all about,” he said. “This is why you work your [butt] off all season, to have the record you have to host this game in your building and give yourself the best opportunity [to advance].”
Vegas and Minnesota will face off in the first Game 7 of the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs Friday night at T-Mobile Arena. It could be an historic night for the Golden Knights as they’ve never clinched a playoff series at home. This will also be the first time they hosted a Game 7.
The Wild have had success against the Golden Knights since they entered the NHL, so it’s no surprise that Minnesota has battled back in this series.
“I think the players deserve a lot of credit for just believing and believing in each other,” said Wild head coach Dean Evason. “I think that’s been the key, not just in the playoffs, it’s been the key from Day One. This group plays hard for each other, and they’ve stuck together and tonight was no different.”
