Reading a bit on Twitter about Wild fans going into panic mode already. Five games in, folks. Six points out of a possible of 10. That pace gives them 98 points over a season. That total would put the Wild in the playoffs, trust me. The Wild lost to the Red Wings, an extremely good hockey team. There are things to watch, some emerging patterns, but nothing to outright panic about.
Breathe in a deep, smooth manner, everyone. Things are going to be OK.
