But the Wild answered back 1 minute 13 seconds later after Heatley and Matt Moulson won an end-wall battle. The puck was popped up top to Jared Spurgeon, who took advantage of a stickless Jamie McGinn by firing through traffic. Moulson tipped it for his first goal of the series.

Earlier in the series, Yeo said he felt it was a ploy by the faster Avalanche to draw 4-on-4s so they could get open ice.

That’s how they scored the go-ahead goal. After Stastny got away with a bunch of stickwork at the side wall, Landeskog held Mikko Koivu’s stick. Koivu finally shoved his way out of the grasp, but as he tried to leave the zone, Landeskog jumped on top of him and began punching away with the puck 100 feet away.

Referee Kelly Sutherland sent them both to the penalty boxes with coincidental minors. On the 4-on-4, MacKinnon flew past a fallen Mikael Granlund into the Wild zone and dropped a pass for Andre Benoit, who fired and saw his shot tipped in by fellow defenseman Nick Holden.

Later, the Wild looked to get short shrift again when referee Brad Meier watched McLeod hit Moulson from behind at the Wild bench. Moulson didn’t have the puck. Coyle, who was just battling with McLeod in the Colorado end, jumped to Moulson’s defense and was called for the lone penalty.

After the period ended with Colorado leading 2-1, lots of noise came from an angry Wild GM’s booth.
