Notes

  • Krys Kolanos was recalled from Houston
    Pekka Rinne is 5-0-0 this season
  • Ron Salcer and the Wild have not talked contract since late September.
  • Mikko Koivu is looking to extend his 7-game scoring streak
  • Owen Nolan didn't make the one-game trip with the lower body injury sustained last night.

Questions to Answer

  1. Can the Wild offense turn around?
    Harding has looked good in his past two starts. Will it continue?
    Does Burns finally find the target? He had 5 shots last night, all in decent scoring angles, but couldn't make it count.
    Will errant passes once again befall the Wild?
    Can the Wild pull their heads out and be consistent?
