Jason Zucker's GWG In OT Stuns Blackhawks

(above) Jason Zucker celebrates on Sunday
DU alum Jason Zucker scored at 2:15 of overtime to give Minnesota a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday, pulling the Wild within 2-1 in the Western Conference quarterfinal series. Zucker's bad-angle shot slipped past goalie Corey Crawford, and the rookie raced toward the corner and jumped into the glass to celebrate.

Zucker had ripped a shot off the crossbar in overtime in Game 1 against the Chicago Blackhawks, a game the Wild lost minutes later.

Who wants to see these kids in the NHL. We need to find mediocre players that will stay four years.

He's starting to hit people too, which he never did in school here. He laid out some king kong mofo the other night....it was a thunderous hit. Knocked the guy on his ass like a semi truck. That shows he's still growing as a player.
