Star Tribune’s Three Stars

1. Jake Allen, Blues: Third win and three goals allowed in the series; 40 saves Sunday, 114 in the series.

2. Jay Bouwmeester, Blues: Big, mobile blue-liner was rock-solid defensively all game. 

3. Charlie Coyle, Wild: Five hits, Wild’s lone goal scorer.

By the numbers

2-11 The Wild’s record in past 13 playoff games.

0-for-9 The Wild on 5-on-4 power plays in the series.

12 Shots, and two goals, by Jaden Schwartz and Colton Parayko.

0 Shots by Erik Haula (the lone Wild player without one).


“We’ve got to look at it like it’s a Game 7 on Wednesday and not worry about the series at all. … It’s short-term goals; it’s one Game 7 on Wednesday.’’
