Zach Parise lost a tooth in Tuesdays' game at Edmonton, then picked it up off the ice. Usually, that would be the lasting memory from a game … but for my money, Charlie Coyle topped Parise's grit with one of the nicest goals in a big spot that I've seen a Wild player score for a while.
Watching Coyle's game-winning goal live, the assumption was that Coyle banked the shot in off a skate. There was no possible way, after going so wide behind the net to elude two defending players and the Edmonton goalie, that Coyle could sneak the puck back in.
Except there was.
