The Minnesota Wild begin their three-game road trip today against the Ottawa Senators. Both teams are — to put it mildly — not doing great. To be fair, the Senators are only doing just a bit better than the Wild, and by a “bit better,” I mean one win. That’s it. The Senators are off to a 1-3-0 start for the season, while the Wild, as we’re all painfully aware, are 0-4-0. Both teams are looking for a much-needed win during the midday matchup on Canadian Thanksgiving.
The biggest concern for Minnesota, aside from the glaringly obvious, is that they may be playing without Mats Zuccarello, as he did not practice yesterday.
