Video: Avalanche, Wild exchange quick goals in second period

Apr 26, 2014, 11:30 PM EDT

You don’t often see Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter making a mistake.

But his giveaway in the neutral zone led to the Colorado Avalanche opening the scoring just before the midway point of the second period on a beautiful deflection from Cody McLeod. The goal came with the Wild on a power play and knocking on the door for the first goal of this game.

This lead didn’t last too long. Matt Moulson scored his first of this post-season just 1:13 later to tie the game for Minnesota.

Here is the Moulson goal.

The Avalanche went into the second period with a 2-1 lead, as it looks to gain a 3-2 lead in the series.

    This game has the worst officiating I’ve ever seen. McLeod hits Moulson from behind and Coyle gets the penalty, Landeskog takes Koivu down from behind, and they both go. Like, what the hell??

      I’d have to see it again, but it looked like Granny was kneed at the end of the second.

      in the words of Kevin Gorg,
      If the Wild get beat fair and square you tip your hat to the Avs but this officiating crew has impacted this game in brutal fashion

      And how about that empty-netter-depriving blatant hold near the end of the 3rd? Holy crap how can they not call that?

    The Lord Jesus Christ will nut the stupid refs making bad calls

    these ref a joke, no consistency the ave continue to take cheap shots after the whistle and no nothing. they should be ashamed

    • mp1131211 - Apr 27, 2014 at 12:01 AM

      Yeah, they’re pretty bad.

    Fairly weak call on Landeskog… but we’ll take it.

      No it wasn’t, he snowed the goalie. If he stops 6 inches to the left there’s no penalty.

    Pretty horse s*** non call on Coyle with the empty net. Pretty hard to miss that hold, but the refs have been awful both ways tonight.

        That’s not offside.

  8. Jeff - Apr 27, 2014 at 12:16 AM

    Unbelievably rigged refs… No holding with the empty net, I’m just tired of this game’s unfairness

    • strictlythedanks - Apr 27, 2014 at 12:20 AM

  9. vstar1us - Apr 27, 2014 at 12:23 AM
