Wild On a Hot Streak Lately

Minnesota Wild Ryan Suter

Minny is currently on a nine-game point streak that’s seen them go 6-0-3 during that span. The Wild have only surrendered nine goals in eight games in December, while lighting the lamp 11 times in victories over Vancouver and the New York Rangers.
