WATCH: Wild G Ilya Bryzgalov gives away goalie stick to lucky fan
Even though the Wild lost, Wednesday night's game was memorable for one Minnesota fan.
It wasn’t a pretty night for the Wild, who dropped Wednesday’s home game 5-2 to Vancouver, but goalie Ilya Bryzgalov did everything he could to make it memorable for one Minnesota fan.
He gave up two goals on seven shots as Minnesota's second-string goalie. Perhaps that's because before the game he gave his stick to one lucky Wild fan. First excitement, then waterworks.
