Because while just 28 teams have battled back and won after falling behind 3-1, a two-game deficit is pretty familiar territory for the Wild.
They’ve done it twice.
Minnesota magical run to the 2003 Western Conference Finals started with a pair of big comebacks.
The Wild fell behind 3-1 to goaltender Patrick Roy and the Colorado Avalanche in the first round, before rattling off three straight victories, winning Game 6 and Game 7 in overtime to advance to the Western Conference Semifinals.

And while the Wild have been stymied so far by a hot goaltender, Jake Allen looked rattled in Game 4, allowing a soft goal to forward Charlie Coyle on a shot from the half-wall and surrendering a goal to Martin Hanzal from the top of the circles.
The schedule is also on their side.
The high seed in the series, the Wild will host Game 5 and Game 7, leaving just one road game left in the series.
