Game 2 Recap: Wild redeem themselves, tie series with 6-2 win

There are few games in Minnesota Wild history that have felt like more of a thud than Monday night’s playoff debut against the St. Louis Blues. Home ice, arguably the best regular season in franchise history in countless metrics, one (arguably two) superstars on the roster, and a fresh lineup following trade deadline acquisitions all seemed to be meaningless after a glimpse of the typical playoff Wild reared their ugly head. Some season long issues also took center stage, with their worst special teams showing of the year being the headline story.

However, despite what the game felt like, it only counted for one loss in the series.
