- The Wild have lost 3 of the last 4 after starting 6-0-1
The Wild are near the league lead in goals again, but the offense has been sputtering
Brent Burns will fly back to the Twin Cities this afternoon to rest his upper body injury.
- Pepsi Center has not been a hospitable venue for the Wild, who are a lifetime 5-15-3 in Denver.
- Jacques Lemaire is very concerned about Pierre-Marc Bouchard’s psyche right now.
Questions to Answer
- Where the hell is Pierre-Marc Bouchard?
Where is the vaunted Wild defense? After giving huge numbers of shots in the last four games, they need to shut the Avs down tonight.
- Will the power play let the Wild down again?
Will Kolanos build on a solid first showing?
Which will last longer, Gaborik's injury or the Franken/Coleman recount?
