We should not blame on Kaprizov(1 goal) and Boldy (0 goals) so far these series. Playoffs is a different level of animal (for me is battle of gladiators).  I just looked for stats of the best player this regular season McDavid (64 goals) who is having so far 2 goals these series. And Robertson is not the best too (1 goal) in 4 games, but had 46 goals this regular season. Playoffs is mainly an outstanding team's play and win is also a team's win. Does not matter who place goals for the team's win.

Sincerely, I do not care about Dallas team if it will pass to the next round despite of having a Minnesota native goalie and/or because it was our former team North Stars. It is a playoffs, and nothing else is matter. We must to win this round just to show that we are a better team than Stars.

I was working recently at different hospitals and many fans from there are going to see at arena our home game on Friday. Everyone was believing into our win because they are still trust to our goalie and experienced team around him. I did not see there anyone who was skeptical. Wow.

Things didn’t end pleasantly for John Klingberg in Dallas. He loves the playoffs and hopes to help the Wild advance past the first round for the first time since 2015. The only thing standing in his way? The Stars, writes @RussoHockey.


I like a lot this motivation!!!!

Probably not only entire Minnesota and Texas will be watching this game but entire Sweden, because we have lots of players from Sweden in comparison to other teams and they are our stars too-  Johansson, Nyquist, Klingberg, Brodin, Gustavsson, EEK(unfortunately injured). Without them we would not compete as well against Dallas. No doubt.
