  • Updated: May 1, 2014 - 1:47 AM

Game 7 recap

Star Tribune’s three stars

1. Nino Niederreiter, Wild: Scored two goals, including the overtime winner, and set up Jared Spurgeon’s tying goal to force OT.

2. P.A. Parenteau, Avalanche: Set up Colorado’s two third-period goals.

3. Jared Spurgeon, Wild: Game-tying goal on a patient play turned the momentum in the Wild’s favor.

Turning point

Wild starting goalie Darcy Kuemper left the game in the third period and his team behind 4-3. The Wild dominated the rest of the way, and backup Ilya Bryzgalov never faced a serious threat.

By the numbers

16 Career playoff goals and 60 points in 71 games for Dany Heatley.
