Minnesota Wild 1

Dallas Stars 2

The Minnesota Wild were defeated by the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Saturday night. Minnesota will head back to St. Paul down two games in the best-of-seven series.

1.Controversial goal

With the game scoreless in the the second period Minnesota tried clearing the puck from behind their net. The puck ended up going off the skate of Antoine Roussel; onto the back of Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk trickling into the net.

It initially was ruled no-goal until an official review reversed the call awarding Dallas the goal.
