Recap: Slow start burns Wild in 4-2 loss to Avalanche

Make that two losses in as many games for the Minnesota Wild as they dropped a 4-2 decision tonight on the road to the Colorado Avalanche. Goals from Ryan Suter and Zach Parise weren’t enough as Devan Dubnyk, who did more than his fair share to earn a win tonight, denied 28 shots in defeat.

A slow start and an inability to stay out of the box is what ultimately crushed Minnesota this evening. The Avalanche are a team you can’t afford to hand opportunities or give ample time and space.
