In the first-ever Minnesota Wild playoff series 15 years ago, the upstart team in only its third season after expansion rallied from a 3-1 deficit to upset the then-mighty Colorado Avalanche in Game 7 of the opening round.
The Nationals hit three game-winning home runs in 2017, winning a total of nine games in walk-off fashion.

I tell them, just like everything else, we work really hard, I also want them to have fun, Martinez said.
Some players took their swings, pretended to lay the bat on the plate, and casually made their way around the bases.
First base coach Tim Bogar extended his hand to its highest point, forcing 5-foot-9 minor league catcher Jhonatan Solano to sprint and leap to deliver Ken Boyer Youth jersey a proper high-five.
Game Tyron Smith Jersey Howie Kendrick re-enacted the celebration from his Aug. 13 grand slam that defeated San Francisco in 11 innings last season.
Kendrick released a primal scream as he headed toward first base, gave a leaping high-five to third base coach Bob Henley and raced to the plate where he celebrated in a scrum with teammates.
Howie was all in, Martinez said. I loved it.
It’s something fun, Kendrick said afterward. Kind of mind games, I guess.
Skating on the top pair and recently seeing minutes with the Blackhawks’ No. 1 power play, Gustafsson has two goals and four assists in four games, including two helpers with the extra skater. If you have a blue-line hole to plug, the tuned-in 25-year-old deserves more than a passing glance with a non-contending club that has little to lose.
The former Minnesota part-timer is carving out a late-season role for himself on the Canadiens’ top pair alongside Jeff Petry and secondary power play. He has five assists to show it, including one with the man advantage. No chance Reilly fills either position with a healthy Shea Weber and Victor Mete in the mix, but that should matter little to deeper league fantasy managers in need of a blue-line body right now.
Best prospect fits: Arizona would love to get Wyoming’s Josh Allen, but will have to give up some draft capital to get there. If the Cardinals can’t trade up and the top four QBs (Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Allen, Josh Rosen) are off the board, Arizona probably will look at a corner. The top two cornerbacks (Alabama’s Minkah Fitzpatrick and Ohio State’s Denzel Ward) will be gone by No. 15, but UCF’s Mike Hughes, Iowa’s Josh Jackson or Colorado’s Isaiah Oliver would be potential fits. — McShay
My client has consistently sought a fair deal with a team maximizing his chances for winning. That was the primary criteria when Jacksonville was the choice last time. It is the primary criteria behind the selection of Denver this time around.
