Another somewhat middling group of 6 (or so) games results-wise. A point per game is OK I guess, but continuing that pace isn’t going to make up for the poor start to the season. On the other hand, the Wild are definitely coming around on even strength scoring (helped by 4 even strength goals Sunday against Carolina). With six of the next seven games at home, this next stretch should be a chance to climb back toward an even record.

What happened to the penalty kill?  That is really disturbing and hopefully not indicative of a continuing trend, but in the last two weeks, both aspects of special teams were pretty bad.  Anytime a team is almost outscored on its power play something is going on.
