Looks like the Minnesota Wild almost have the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim where they want them.

After losing 2-0 in Game 2 Monday night to fall 2-0 in the Western Conference finals, the Wild will need another spectacular comeback to extend their season. Two game deficits didn't matter in the first two rounds as Minnesota became the first team to come back twice in one playoff year after being down three games to one against Colorado and Vancouver.

"Just look at what these guys have done," Anaheim center Rob Niedermayer told reporters after the game. "They've been down 3-1 in both their last series and they found a way to come back. We don't want to give them any life at all. They're a very dangerous team."
