The NHL Network has been taking votes for viewers’ favorite game of the 2014 playoffs with the intention of screening the top five games on the NHL Network tomorrow (Saturday, July 18). On Friday the NHL Network announced the winner via Twitter… and it’s Game 7 between the Avalanche and the Wild.

Wild fans can relive the best moment of the Wild vs. Avalanche series and Nino Niederreiter’s OT game-winner tomorrow at 7pm CST on the NHL Network. (In other Nino news, the Wild are open to a long-term deal with him.) You’ll also be able to catch the other four games that were voted in. Here’s the complete schedule for tomorrow’s airing of the top five 2014 playoff games:
10am CST — Montreal Canadiens vs. Boston Bruins, Game 1 from May 1.
12pm CST — Montreal Canadiens vs. New York Rangers, Game 4 from May 25.
2pm CST — Los Angeles Kings vs. New York Rangers, Game 5 from June 13. (The game where the Kings won the Stanley Cup.)
4pm CST — Los Angeles Kings vs. Chicago, Game 7 from June 1.
7pm CST — Minnesota Wild vs. Colorado Avalanche, Game 7 from April 30.
Also, browsing the NHL Network schedule for tomorrow, you can catch three straight episodes of Becoming Wild starting at 3:30am CST. The NHL Network will air the episodes on Mike Yeo, the Iowa Wild, and Jason Zucker (who just re-signed with the Wild), in that order.
Ok. Watch Nino’s OT game-winner quick, because it helps with the hockey withdrawal.
82 days till the home opener.
