Minnesota Wild Forward Gets Early Game Misconduct In Game 5

The Minnesota Wild are in Dallas for a critical Game 5 against the Stars as the series is tied at two games a piece, but unfortunately, the start to this critical matchup certainly isn't what they had hoped for as they find themselves immediately behind the 8-ball.

Early in the game, forward Marcus Foligno received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for kneeing on Radek Faksa, immediately leading to the Stars going up 1-0 with a massive power play goal early.

Unfortunately for Foligno, this comes after his harsh criticisms of the refereeing in the series, and now the Wild could potentially be without a veteran piece for the rest of this game and potentially more, so this could be the thing that changes the tide in this series.
