Two games, two losses, two points. Gotta love the NHL.

When a team outshoots another 41-17 and they go to a shootout, that's a combination of horrible offense and exceptional goaltending.

Tonight was no exception. The Wild were terrible offensively, and Backstrom was lights-out. This was a horrible showing by the Wild forwards, and proved that they are a mediocre team. Hopefully Gaborik can come back soon, and spark this team to get them into the playoffs.

Hockey Wilderness Three Stars

  1. Niklas Backstrom (41 shots, 40 saves)
  2. John-Michael Liles (1 G)
  3. Marc-Ande Bergeron (1 G)

Questions to Answer

  1. Does Owen Nolan keep on his hot streak? Unfortunately not.
  2. Can the Wild get this road trip off to a good start tonight? Well, maybe for Backstrom.
  3. Has Colorado packed it in, and can the Wild take advantage of it? Unfortunately not. Tonight it looked like the Wild packed it in.
  4. Will we see the Wild from the first half of the San Jose game or the second half? First half.
  5. Will Bouchard get his game back on a roll? No.
