Dallas Stars 3

Minnesota Wild 5

The Minnesota Wild held off the Dallas Stars for a 5-3 Game 3 win in their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series Monday night.

1. Four unanswered leads to comeback

The Wild rattled off four unanswered goals to change the momentum of Monday night's Game 3. Trailing 2-0, Chris Porter, Erik Haula, Jason Pominville and Miko Koivu scored a series of crucial goals for Minnesota.

2. Haula if you hear him

Maybe they should call him Mr. April. Haula plays some of his best hockey in the postseason. He had two points (1 goal, 1 assist) Monday night.

3. Too Sharp for the Wild

Patrick Sharp continues to make a postseason feast out of the Minnesota Wild. He scored a pair of goals against the Wild on Monday night, after having huge games against Minnesota while playing with Chicago in each of the three previous postseasons.

Tweet of the Night:

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer had some encouraging words for the Wild.

Up Next:

Dallas still holds the 2-1 series lead. Game 4 is at the Xcel Energy Center Wednesday night.
