That loss may be what cost them the Presidents’ Trophy — and a simpler First Round series with the Blues. Instead, they almost have to take Game 3 to prevent snowballing. Their worst case scenario might be facing up two more Wild home games, and potentially facing elimination at their toughest rink.

Anna: The Vegas Golden Knights defeat the Minnesota Wild in 6 games: The Minnesota Wild have seen a spark in their team with the addition of rookie Kirill Kaprizov this season. He has secured 27 goals and 24 assists for a total of 51 points in 55 games played. However, in the playoffs he will have to face off against the solid netminders that will man the Vegas crease. Marc-Andre Fleury and Robin Lehner rotated starts all season, and it paid off as they secured the Jennings Trophy for fewest goals allowed. Vegas has perhaps the strongest goaltending situation heading into this postseason, with two very solid options and Fleury in particular having a plethora of playoff experience. It will be tough for Minnesota to hold up against them and I think they will not be able to pull out more than two wins in this series.
