The Wild looked focused and determined to win a game against one the best teams in the Western conference. The problem is that hockey is three periods long, not two. The Wild only played two periods on this night. Before it was over the Wild would be tamed by the St. Louis Blues.

Minnesota actually had a 3-1 lead in the second period but the Blues got a goal late in the third period to narrow the gap to 3-2. The third period was a disaster.
