The Wild are on a seven-game road trip and are currently 3-2 through five contests. Minnesota beat Los Angeles last night by a 3-1 score. The Kings got on the board first, but the Wild scored the next three goals to earn the win. Zach Parise earned his 700th career NHL point when he scored in the second period.
Minnesota gives up 2.67 goals against per game which is 6th best in the league. Their penalty kill is 86% efficient which is 4th best in the league. They will look for another strong defensive tonight after holding LA to just one goal last night. Mikael Granlund leads the team with seven goals. Parise leads the team in total points with 15(6 G + 9 A).
