“We had to get there and we got a good push when we needed," said the Minnesota Wild's Game 6 hero, Zach Parise.

While they celebrated the win on the ice, the excitement was gone from the players by the time the locker room door opened for the media. The team was already focusing on what lies ahead.

"When we signed here, we didn't sign here to win a first-round game," Parise said. "We look at the big picture. We were able to force a game seven, that's what we wanted to do... we did it, now we gotta get a win in Denver."
