2019 - Central Division Final Game 4 - Iowa (2) vs. Chicago (1)
Coming off a Game 3 victory on May 5, the Iowa Wild evened their best-of-seven-series with the Chicago Wolves, claiming a 2-1 win in Game 4. Winger Gerry Mayhew had both Iowa tallies, bringing his 2019 postseason goal total to nine.
MayheW's first goal came with 6:59 left in the opening period, as he took a Cal O'Reilly pass and sped deep into the Wolves zone, before carving in front of the net and scoring a beautiful goal past the poke check of Chicago goaltender Oscar Dansk.
Early in the third period, Mayhew poked home a loose puck from just outside the goal crease for his second goal of the night and a 2-0 lead. The Wolves then scored midway through the third period, marking their first goal since early in the 2nd period of Game 2.
The Wild would hang on to win 2-1, improving their home ice record in the 2019 Calder Cup Playoffs to 4-0.
