Last season, the Minnesota Wild split the season series with the Colorado Avalanche 2-2. When they succeeded, the Wild were able to lockdown the Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen line to three points (1G, 2A). When they lost, the ‘Rocky Mountain Line’ ran wild, only scoring one more goal than when they lost, but allowed for their depth group to take advantage of exhausted Wild skaters. With the additional depth and bolstered defense, what does Minnesota have to do to leave Denver with their first victory of the season?
What Minnesota Has to Do
The Wild absolutely need to contain the Rocky Mountain Line.
