Where The Wild Things Are
The Minnesota Wild head on the road after a big 7-4 win at home on Tuesday night over the Edmonton Oilers, giving the club their 22nd win in the last 29 meetings at Xcel Energy Center. Forward Ryan Hartman picked up a Hat Trick, his first since 2017, along with a pair of assists for a career-high five points on the night.
Fellow linemate Mats Zuccarello also scored in the contest and goalie Filip Gustavsson made 25 saves on 29 shots faced for the victory. The Wild will now look to win for just the fifth time in the last 14 games played in Philadelphia, who are returning back home from an extended road trip. Minnesota needs to put together a solid string of wins to avoid the rough early start the club dealt with last season.
Philadelphia Freedom in Front?
The Philadelphia Flyers are playing with a lot of confidence and energy to start the regular season, winning three of their first six games and faring well in two very tough road contests, losing 5-4 in overtime to the Dallas Stars over the weekend and dropping a 3-2 decision against the defending Stanley Cup Champions in Vegas in what was a later than usual start with the ESPN and the NHL running their “Frozen Frenzy” promotion.
Flyers fans watching on television didn’t see the contest end until around 2 a.m., local time. Centerman Travis Konecky leads the team in goals with five and points overall with seven. Trailing behind him in the goals department is veteran Joel Farabee. The 34-year-old winger has four goals thus far in six games played.
