GAME 3 RECAP
STAR TRIBUNE’S THREE STARS
1. Jason Pominville, Wild: Two goals and an assist in a breakthrough game for the veteran winger.
2. Mikael Granlund, Wild: Sparked Wild with hustle; four blocked shots and four takeaways.
3. Chris Porter, Wild: Got his team back in the game with a first-period goal that started the comeback.
BY THE NUMBERS
399: 14 Minutes and seconds since the Wild last had a lead in a playoff game — Game 6 in the first round against St. Louis last year — before Pominville’s second-period goal.
26 Seconds into the game Patrick Sharp scored for Dallas, the fastest playoff goal against the Wild.
“They play for each other, and that’s why they are a very good line.”
— Wild coach John Torchetti, on the Pominville-Erik Haula-Nino Niederreiter line
