Let’s go over some news and notes:

- Another night, another loss for Minnesota. The Wild are now 0-3-0 to start the season, and things won’t get much easier when they take on the Penguins on Saturday. [Hockey Wilderness]

- The Wild want to score their goals from the dirty areas, but sometimes you just have to let her rip from the slot and beat a goalie clean with a sick wrister. How much longer will they continue to try and score the greasy goals? [Pioneer Press]

- There are several coaches on the hot seat. Is Bruce Boudreau be one of them? If Minnesota’s poor play continues, absolutely. [The Athletic]

- If these power rankings are even somewhat accurate, the Wild could be due for an extremely high draft pick this summer. [ESPN]

Off the trail...

- The Stars have a pretty interesting situation developing with Julius Honka. He remains unsigned, so he’s officially headed to Finland to play hockey for the time being. [NBC Sports]

- The Sabres let young players play their game and learn from their mistakes. All teams should be like the Sabres. [The Hockey News]

- In his first game back with the Sharks, Patrick Marleau scored not once, but twice. Coincidence that they win in his first game of the season?
