Aaron, Joe, and Tony examine the late-game heroics of Mikael Granlund, whose spectacular goal put the Minnesota Wild right back into the series with the Colorado Avalanche. They then tackle the Matt Cooke hit/up-coming suspension (turns out, it was 7 games) from all angles. Is his suspension fair? Has he been a dirty player in a Wild uniform before Monday night? How big of a blow will losing Tyson Barrie be to Colorado? Would a Wild series win be tainted by the incident? Was this part of a strategy by the Wild? And a lot more questions about the incident.
