Three games in. Zero wins. Zero points. And zero indication that the Minnesota Wild will turn things around in front of a hometown crowd as the dangerous (yet also currently struggling) Pittsburgh Penguins come to town.

We looked back at some of the most memorable Wild home openers on Friday, so check that out to recall some happier times.
