Quote of the Day

He's a strong kid. He's a competitive kid, and certainly not afraid to go into the corners. He's got the skating ability to escape and help us execute in certain situations, but he's got that competitive nature that's a huge part of it too, especially against a team like this.

— Wild coach Mike Yeo on defenseman Matt Dumba, who used a hard slap shot to score his first career playoff goal in Game 1 win vs. Blues
