Two in a Row Likely too Much for Wild

Chris Porter Wild

In Game 3 of their first round series against the Dallas Stars, the Minnesota Wild were able to finally put an end to a ridiculous seven game losing streak when they exploded for five goals, while allowing just 17 shots on net. A repeat performance tonight might be a difficult task, as you’d have to go back to the start of last season — a total of 12 games — for the last time Minnesota has beaten Dallas twice in a row.
