Wild 3, Kings 1: Wild steamroll Kings

Photo by Bruce Kluckhohn/NHLI via Winning streak now sits at five games A 3-1 game might not register as a ‘steamrolling’ for most, but this was as close as it gets. With both teams coming into tonight on a roll (the Los Angeles Kings were on a league-best six-game streak, the Wild on a four-game streak of their own), the thought was that this might be a tight matchup.

What will the Wild do when Stalock returns?

Photo by John Cordes/Icon Sportswire via Minnesota’s suddenly deep stable of netminders will make for a very crowded roster in the near future File this under “a good problem to have”, but the Minnesota Wild will soon have all of their goaltenders back and healthy - and some difficult decisions on where to put all of them.
