Game: Wild @ Avalance (Game 7, first round)
Date: April 22, 2003
I didn’t watch a lick of hockey after the North Stars left, not even the Wild’s inaugural season. But when the made the playoffs in 2003, I tuned in. Down three games to one, they won game five, then won game six in overtime. Then game seven. I was definitely on edge.
I think last year’s Wild playoff comeback against Colorado was even more insanely tense, but the announcing wasn’t as strong. The first call below is some ESPN dude I can’t determine.
and here’s the radio call.

Kind of sounds like Karl Ravech, or something.
I was college during this run and we went f***ing nuts after that goal. That was a lot of fun.
I remember this goal quite fondly, though I don’t remember why I was watching hockey at the time, since I hadn’t really gotten into it yet from after the North Stars left.
I agree – could be Ravech.
I watched all of those playoffs. Nearly killed me.
Pretty sure that’s Steve Levy. He did a lot of ESPN playoff hockey.
Maybe we should just say its Starl Levech and call it close enough.
