Yet for as many golden opportunities as Minnesota had in the opening game of the playoffs, the Wild flew home down 1-0 in the best-of-seven series. As difficult as the loss was to swallow, Minnesota...
Minnesota Wild right wing Jason Pominville will sit out Tuesday's playoff opener against the Chicago Blackhawks.
