against the stars who once again won't be able to change. >> pierre: he had time, he had space. he had to move his feet. he got cozy and comfortable and he just misfired. and if minnesota comes back to score, he'll remember that one, ales hemsky. >> gord: that happened in the miracle in manchester back in '82, an empty net shot missed. the face-off came back down and the tying goal was scored. >> pierre: i believe it happened in a game that he played in with patrick stepan. remember that one, gord? >> gord: yep. koivu digs in again against faksa. 46.6 seconds left. another scramble draw. this timcoe rontlled by the wild. back at the point is spurgeon. suter back with it. ryan suter to jared spurgeon. across to granlund. down low to koivu. centers, niederreiter! in the net! niederreiter banging away at it and kari lehtonen keeps it out. >> pierre: the only good piece

didn't go in and they can change players. minnesota has it all going on right now. nino niederreiter, spurgeon, koivu, it's equal opportunity. they're stronger right now, they're quicker, they're more determined, and there's a whole lot of urgency. and look at them evaluating to see if someone in white closed their hand on the puck in the crease, because if they did, that's a penalty shot. where's the puck? >> gord: demers was diving for it. and the wild are hollering that the hand was closed. and now the referees are going to the timekeepers' bench, and they may have a look at this. remember, in the final minute of regulation and overtime, the nhl command center controls all video review. >> pierre: the key is watch number 4 in white, jason demers. where is his hand and where is the puck?
6:03 pm
>> gord: the puck is right there. you can see it loose for the second. it's russell standing on it. >> pierre: i don't believe the puck -- oh, did it cross the line, too, gord? watch it go off his leg. where is his pad? is it over the icing line or the goal line in this case? >> gord: here's the puck right there. have a look. oh, my. that is millimeters from being in. >> pierre: that's a great nbc-it. remember, the entire puck has to go across the goal line. >> gord: now, closing your hand on the puck is not reviewable. >> pierre: not reviewable, no. >> gord: so, what they're looking at is did the puck cross the line? >> pierre: correct. >> gord: this is the feed they're looking
6:04 pm
here's the call. >> referee: the puck never crossed the goal line. therefore, there is no goal. >> gord: boy, lindy ruff's been on the wrong end of one of those calls back in 1989, game six of the stanley cup final. if you live in dallas. >> pierre: remember calgary and tampa, too. the fans are seeing it on the screen. they don't like it. but the puck has to be all the way across the line. >> gord: so, 33.9 seconds left in the third period. koivu will face off against spezza. that's how close the wild came. >> pierre: hold on. they've got to get the officials over here. people are throwing money on the ice. great job by fiddler to get out there and get it so nobody can get hurt. >> gord: there is debris being thrown on, something else at center ice. >> pierre: both benches now are letting the linesmen know.
6:05 pm
>> gord: the crowd incensed here in st. paul by what they think is a tying goal in a game that their team trailed 4-0 not that long ago. but the focus now on the final 33.9 seconds of regulation. koivu in for spezza. and koivu wins it cleanly back. suter sends it across to spurgeon. jared spurgeon in the corner for koivu. niederreiter and pominville standing in front. 25 seconds to go in the third. granlund works his way in. mikael granlund in the corner for koivu, tries to work it back in front. benn has it, lifts it down the ice, and misses! another icing call coming at the dallas stars, this one with 13.8 seconds remaining. >> pierre: i don't think you can make it any harder on yourself than dallas has here this afternoon. first you had ales hemsky missing a wide-open one and then their best scorer, jamie benn, missing a wide-open one. >> gord: now it will be koivu
6:06 pm
left. everyone on their feet. 13.8 seconds remaining. kicked back by koivu. back of the line, spurgeon shoots! deflected off the leg of goligoski. suter shoots! that's blocked as well. from his knees, fired down the ice that time by spezza. racing back is spurgeon. another face-off coming. 2.9 seconds left. one more chance for the wild to try to tie this game. kari lehtonen talking it over with cody eakin. it will be spezza who takes the draw against koivu. >> pierre: players are looking for some direction. the number one thing now for spezza's just scramble the draw and get support from the wings. don't let the puck go back. >> gord: clock set at 2.9 seconds now. wild talking it over. neither team has a
6:07 pm
koivu against jason spezza for the face-off in the dallas zone. >> pierre: spezza's wondering if they should notch up on the boards on pominville. for koivu, it's a harder play because he's a left shot. if it was a right shot, he could just nail it to the board for pominville. >> gord: six skaters on five for the minnesota wild. they're resetting it to 3.2 seconds remaining. >> pierre: dallas it just going to stack the middle part of the ice. if you're going to beat them, you're going to have to go through a white wall. >> gord: these middle linesmen will do the drop. once spezza and koivu are in position. koivu wins it back. chance for pominville. poked away. suter shoots to the pound, blocked as well, rebound, koivu shoots! and the stars hang on to win it 5-4. they're on to the second round of the stanley cup playoffs after withstanding a furious minnesota wild rally in the
