No, every team wants to impose their will. Minnesota realized early in the game that they weren't going to be able to do that, so instead they just tried to limit the damage. They were still getting dominated in possession and zone time, but they didn't seem to panic (unlike the Blues). Then when the opportunities presented themselves, they capitalized, and converted just enough to take them to a shootout, where they delivered the knockout blow. The Kings got rope-a-doped, and I don't think it was an accident.
