Wild’s Early Season Struggles Continue
WINNIPEG - Between injuries and missed chances the losses are starting to pile up early in the season for the Wild.
Minnesota lost again Friday night to the Winnipeg Jets 4-3.
The Wild's poor penalty-kill gave up two goals, and lack-luster defense led to the other two goals.
It looked like the Wild were about to go into the 2nd intermission with a 3-2 lead until Wild Defense men Kyle Quincey took a slashing penalty with less than a minute to go. The Jets would score the tying goal less than 30 seconds later.
A silver lining for the Wild is the early season play of forward Chris Stewart. After just five games Stewart has seven points (5 goals, 2 assists). That is just 14 points from his entire point total from last season.
