Game 3 recap

Star Tribune’s three stars

1. Semyon Varlamov, Avalanche: Unbeatable for the first 65 minutes. Stopped 45 shots.

2. Mikael Granlund, Wild: Scored his first career playoff goal 5:08 into overtime on his seventh shot.

3. Darcy Kuemper, Wild: In his first career playoff start, he made 22 saves for the Wild’s first playoff shutout.

Turning point

Granlund’s overtime goal was obviously the exclamation point in this game, but the Wild came out with a fever, outshooting the Avs 22-8 in a dominant first period that established the tone for the game and kept the crowd alive and screaming.

By the numbers

6-6 The Wild’s all-time playoff record in overtime (4-3 at home).

6-10 The Wild’s record at home all-time in the playoffs.

22 Shots by the Wild in the first period, a team playoff record.

11 Games decided by one goal among the 16 all-time Wild-Avalanche playoff games.

7 Playoff games, in three series between the Wild and Avalanche, that have gone to OT.
