Minnesota Wild Suffer Worst Choke in Their History

Last night the Wild entered the 3rd period with a 4-1 lead; a lead that is nearly insurmountable in the NHL.  Despite giving up a goal with 10 minutes left in the game, they were able to kill off the period down until about the 3:00 mark.  Things looked good.

That's when the wheels came off. 


The team proceeded to give up three goals within that short time frame to go from a two point win to a zero point loss.  It was capped by the worst goal ever given up by Josh Harding, and one of the worst goals I've seen given up regardless of the goalie.

This team was on the bubble for a playoff berth coming out of the All Star break.  They needed a hot start and some critical points in order to propel themselves into the post-season.  Unfortunately, with this start, they now have some serious soul searching they'll need to conduct.

They also may want to get their golf clubs ready, because come spring, these guys will likely be as far away from a hockey rink as they can be.
