HUGE.  EEK has really arrived this year and proven he has offense too.  Just took some time. 

What a game and Talbot is now out of the doghouse 👊👍

Had one of our 2 goalies looked like they did 3-4 weeks ago I’d feel much better about this series. Now that could change with a stellar performance today but if it’s the same the way it has been this thing will be done in 5 if not 4

Pens and Isles in OT so wonder if they'll move our game to another channel to start.

Good kill 

I loved Eek taking it all the way down and getting the backhander off on Fleury.

Probably the best 200 foot player the Wild have
