Play-In Report Card: Ryan Suter had up-and-down, injury-shortened series

Like the song Big Yellow Taxi says, “don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone?”

For two games in the play-in series between the Minnesota Wild and the Vancouver Canucks, Ryan Suter had an up and down performance, eating minutes and limiting chances, but also suffering some mental breakdowns that led to devastating Canucks goals.

Then, with 6:51 left in the third period of Game 3, Suter disappeared down the tunnel with a foot injury from a blocked shot, and what had already been a rough series for the Wild from a defensive standpoint got much, much worse.
