Continued: Wild suffers mile-high meltdown in OT loss to Colorado

The Wild got goals from Charlie Coyle, Suter, Haula and Kyle Brodziak. Haula and Brodziak scored their first career playoff goals 2:04 apart late in the second.

But Brodziak handed it right back when after the Wild killed off its fourth power play of the game, he coughed up the puck under no duress. Moments later, Jamie McGinn made it 4-3.

That made for frantic final 13 minutes and highlighted a game in which the Wild managed the puck poorly during several critical junctures. On the tying goal, all Spurgeon had to do was flip the puck out of the defensive zone and the Wild would carry a 1-0 lead into Saturday’s Game 2.

“That for me has got to be the focus,” Yeo said, referring to being better with the puck and pressuring more aggressively in the defensive zone.

That’s not easy against a fast, skilled Avs team. But the Wild knows it must respond.

“It’s a race to four,” veteran forward Matt Cooke said. “This is one win. We knew it wasn’t going to be easy, and we’re in this for the long haul.”
