St. Paul, Minnesota –  Joel Edmundson, a 23-year-old defenseman, scored in overtime to help the NHL St. Louis Blues beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 in Game One of a Best of Seven playoff series before 19,168 at the Xcel Energy Center. It was a very tough loss for Jason Zucker of Las Vegas and the Wild who earlier got a late-game goal from Zach Parise to tie the game 1-1 in regulation play. Edmundson then scored and won it for the Blues in OT.
