Wild goalie Darcy Kuemper leaves in third period with injury

DENVER - Minnesota goalie Darcy Kuemper has left Game 7 of the Wild's playoff series against Colorado with an apparent injury.

Kuemper was replaced by Ilya Bryzgalov in the third period Wednesday night. The nature of the injury wasn't clear and there was no immediate announcement by the Wild.

Bryzgalov had not played since Game 2 of the series.

The Wild and Avalanche were tied at 4 after regulation.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
