Wild 3, Blackhawks 2

October 28, 2008

I covered my first Wild game of the new season on Monday, and Minnesota remains the only NHL team without a regulation loss despite playing without Marian Gaborik in five of seven games. Speaking of guys with expiring contracts, Niklas Backstrom continues to be outstanding. He’s played every minute for the Wild in net at this point and at this rate will earn some big bucks of his own.
