Thanks for a tough series. Once the Ducks had the lead, they had to defend against a Wild counter. You guys showed the speed and sharpness in game 4 in that if the Ducks didn't skate, then the Wild would have run the DUcks out.

As for you guys next year, I think Boogard will be a huge asset on the PP unit. I don't like Boogard when he sticks his knees out, but he's good on getting under people's skins and taking up a lot of space in front of the next. I don't think Boogard will be a Ryan Smith, but he can force some rebound goals in or assist someone in a rebound goal.

Yes, very good series guys. Backstrom impressed the hell out of me, he kept the Wild in this. Good luck next season.

The Wild played really great most of the time, they made me worry a lot. They put up a great fight and it was really intense, fun series to watch. Sorry Wild fans, maybe we'll see you next year!

I literally have no fingernails left thanks to this team. It was only in 5 games, but the Wild gave us an incredible ride. And, to Risebrough, make sure to do whatever it takes to lock up Backstrom. He's a keeper. I'm sure Florida will take Manny off your hands, doing us both a favor. Or, and hopefully not, we'll end up with him.

Good luck next year.

You guys kept the games about as close as a 5 game series with mostly by 1 goal wins can be. Even though we controlled most of the play, every once in awhile this lightning strike would come out of nowhere, like Scotty's penalty on Gaborik in game 1 or the shortie tonight. Definitely have the transition defense sharpened after this series.

Backstrom was insane. He seems like a keeper. The question is what happens with your goalie situation? Fernandez has contract past this year, Backstrom's the UFA, and Harding is waiting in the wings.
