Mats Zuccarello was fired and the Minnesota Wild lost Game 4 of the playoffs against the Dallas Stars 2-3 at home on Sunday.
Thus, the old Norwegian club tied at 2-2 in the first play-off round matches, which are played in best of seven matches.
After a scoreless first half, Zuccarillo’s teammate Kirill Kasparov had a great chance early in the second half. The Russian came out on his own against Stars goalkeeper Jake Oettinger, but could not outsmart the away goalkeeper.
Minutes later, the visitors were allowed to play an over after Wilde was sent off. Tyler Seguin grabbed the ball behind Swede Philip Gustafsson in the Wild goal, and the visitors took the lead before the final period.
When Jevgenij Dadonov added the lead after just three minutes of play in the final period, things looked bleak for the Wild, but with 14 minutes left in the game, Zuccarello sent a cross through the air to John Klingberg who scored the tying goal. Thus, hope was once again kindled to the green-clad public in St. Paul’s.
With just under four minutes to play, the hosts once again had to play one man less when Ryan Hartmann was sent off for bad behaviour. The visitors took advantage again and Frederic Goudreau extended their lead with 3 minutes and 31 seconds left.
Wilde got the guard out and threw all the players on offense and also had a chance to play six-for-four, when the Stars had to be fired. Frederick Gaudreau was lowered on the Wild, but it was too late and the away team won the game.
The next game in the playoff series between the two teams will be played on Wednesday night in Dallas.
