Wilderness is unable to repeat the fast start in Ottawa – the Twin Cities

OTTAWA, ON – The Minnesota Wild got off to a slow, relatively slow start, Tuesday night in Ottawa.

The Wild scored four goals in the first period of Sunday’s game in Edmonton, including two on his first four shots en route to a 7-3 win.

On Tuesday, Wild not only failed to score in the first half and beat 13-11, but trailed 2-0 heading into the first break after giving up a goal just two minutes into the game on the first shot. the game.

Modern town villa

While Kevin Fiala does a lot of talking on the ice with his play, his play is the talk of the town on Radio Ottawa as the NHL trade deadline is around one month.

Much of the debate on Tuesday was whether the senators should try to trade for the wild striker, who is arguably having the best season of his career. The question is, does Wild want to part with the third scorer. Cheap talk.

Greenway and Gretsky

Jordan Greenway may not be Wayne Gretzky, but he does seem to honor the character of The Great One and the number 99 he wore, who is now retired from the National Hockey League.

Greenway sits at 99 career points and has been stuck there for the past seven games. His last point was the assist on February 2nd in Chicago.

Chabot’s return

Senator Thomas Chabot missed the last four games due to injury, and luckily, he’s back to play his 300th game in the National Hockey League as Wilde came to town.

Adding to the festivities, Chabot opened the scoring at 2:09 of the first half and added a pass to the Senators’ second goal.

no mats

Wilde was eliminated on Tuesday without second scorer Mats Zuccarello, who was knocked out with a minor upper body injury.

Of all the Wild players, Zuccarello has the best numbers against the Senators. In 16 official matches against Ottawa, he has five goals and 14 points.

power outage

Despite scoring 12 power-play goals since Jan. 22, his second in the league during that span, Wild was surprisingly 13th in power play entering the game on Tuesday.

Even worse, they played straight into the first half of the first half and not only did they not score, but things would have been worse had it not been for goalkeeper Cam Talbot. Talbot tackled a two-on-one in the first power game, then seconds later stopped Nick Paul in a shortened breakup.

The third time is magic

Ottawa’s Tim Stutzel scored in the second half on Tuesday, bringing him goals in three consecutive games for the first time in his short career. Tuesday was his 101st career match.
