Game: Wild @ Avalance (Game 7, first round)
Date: April 22, 2003
I didn’t watch a lick of hockey after the North Stars left, not even the Wild’s inaugural season. But when the made the playoffs in 2003, I tuned in. Down three games to one, they won game five, then won game six in overtime. Then game seven. I was definitely on edge.
I think last year’s Wild playoff comeback against Colorado was even more insanely tense, but the announcing wasn’t as strong. The first call below is some ESPN dude I can’t determine.
and here’s the radio call.
