Sunday night, the Minnesota Wild played the Vancouver Canucks the same time the Vikings played the Saints in an NFL playoff game.
For Wild fans, the Vikings game was hard to peel away from. After taking an early 17-point lead, the Vikings imploded in the second half. Kicker Wil Lutz gave the Saints a 24-23 lead after connecting on a 43-yard field goal with only 25 seconds left. The Vikings would get the ball back and on the team’s final play, Case Keenum found UMD alumnus Stefon Diggs along the sideline for an unlikely 61-yard touchdown.
