Wild @ Preds game 23 wrap up: Ryan Suter Rules edition


Frederick Breedon

Wild win! Wild win! SUTER has a 6 game point streak! Wild won!!!! Fans boo'd SUTER the whole game. WILD WON!!!!! Wild scored a PPG!!!! Oh yeah, Wild beat the Preds, if you haven't heard yet.

First period was boring hockey. 2nd period the Wild scored, Zach Parise from RYAN SUTER and Mikko Koivu. 3rd period, SUTER took a penalty, Preds scored on it. OT had MN in the Preds zone pretty much the whole time. Koivu and Matt Cullen scored for the Wild in the SO. Wild take on Vancouver tomorrow night at the X, hopefully the guys get lots of rest tonight/tomorrow. Especially Jared Spurgeon, who got flung around a lot of the game.

Five Questions:

  1. How does Suter fair for his first time back at Bridgestone? Pretty good. Preds tried to pull him into making dumb penalties, only obliged once
  2. Nashville will be a division rival next season, how does this rivalry look so far? Preds might be a pretty decent opponent, as long it its not a repeat of the 1st period forever
  3. Both teams beat the snot out of Edmonton recently. How do both teams fair against actual hockey teams? They certainly scored less
  4. How does Cal look in his first game back? Not too bad, made some pretty decent hits
  5. Does Konopka retain his "most hated by the fans" moniker at HW tonight? Konopka didn't do anything dumb tonight. I'm kind of proud.

WILD WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
