Game Preview

Heading into a busy week of games, starting with a date Monday against the Penguins in Pittsburgh, the Minnesota Wild seem to be finding their groove.

The Wild, with four games in six days leading into the NHL’s Christmas break, have won three in a row, including a 2-1 shootout win Saturday against the Vancouver Canucks. Perhaps more telling, the team is 7-2-0 since John Hynes replaced Dean Evason as coach Nov. 27.

“We feel real comfortable,” Minnesota forward Marcus Foligno said. “A lot of confidence in our team, the way we’re playing in these tight games.”
