St. Paul, Minnesota – In a brutally physical game Jason Zucker of Las Vegas and the NHL Minnesota Wild lost 2-1 to the St. Louis Blues before a sold out crowd of 19,404 at the XCel Energy Center. St. Louis scored first, then Zach Parise scored on a 5-on-3 for Minnesota to tie the game. With just over two minutes to play Jaden Schwartz of St. Louis scored the game winner. Earlier during an in-game interview St. Louis coach Mike Yeo – a former Wild head coach – said he ordered a hard, extremely physical attack to slow down the quicker Wild forwards. St. Louis leads the Best of Seven 2-0 going into Game Three in St. Louis on Sunday.
