Wild even series at 2 with 2-1 win vs. Avalanche

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Charlie Coyle scored his third goal of the series for Minnesota, and the Wild defeated the Colorado Avalanche for the second straight game on their way to a 2-1 win Thursday night that evened the first-round matchup at two apiece.

The Wild outshot the Avalanche a stunning 32-12, establishing a franchise record for fewest allowed by Minnesota. Colorado has been outshot 78-34 in the last two games, with Ryan O'Reilly getting the only goal.

Jared Spurgeon used a slap shot to get a puck past Colorado's Semyon Varlamov just 3:47 into the game, much quicker than the 65:08 the Wild needed to score the last time.

Game 5 will be in Denver on Saturday night.
