Wild 7, Senators 2: Minnesota rolls past Ottawa in lopsided matinee

This matinee post-Thanksgiving matchup between the Minnesota Wild and the Ottawa Senators started out very much like the previous meeting earlier this season between the two teams. Dull, slow and just overall very uneventful hockey. Fortunately, that changed a little over midway through the first period when Minnesota had a few great chances to score, including Ryan Hartman’s early bid.

Minnesota would keep up the pressure, but the Senators got on the board first on a nice redirect by Nick Paul over the shoulder of Alex Stalock, making it 1-0 Ottawa.
