Wild knocked out of NHL playoffs after 5-1 loss to Blues in Game 6
May 13, 2022
ST. LOUIS - The Blues have pestered the Wild for months, from spoiling the Winter Classic at Target Field on New Year's Day to interrupting the team's franchise-record pace with two rare late-season blemishes.
Their final dig this spring came on Thursday, a 5-1 blowout at Enterprise Center in Game 6 that eliminated the Wild from the best-of-seven first-round series 4-2.
This is the third straight year the Wild hasn't advanced past its first matchup; the team hasn't been to the second round since 2015, getting bounced early the six times it's made the postseason over the past seven years.
