This marks the third of eight regular-season meetings between these clubs. This past weekend, the Wild and Avs split a pair of games at Minnesota. This is also the third of four meetings between these teams in a span of just six days.
On Saturday, the Avs had five different goal scorers, including Mikko Rantanen, in a 5-1 victory. Nathan MacKinnon had a pair of assists, while Philipp Grubauer stopped 19 of 20 shots. On Sunday, Minnesota defenseman Jonas Brodin scored the game-winning goal 18 seconds into overtime, giving the Wild a 4-3 win.
MacKinnon left Sunday’s game before the third period with a lower-body injury and is week-to-week. This was the latest in a string of injuries for the Avs. In Saturday’s win, defenseman Erik Johnson suffered an upper-body injury. He did not play Sunday.
Sunday’s win wrapped up a six-game homestand, where the Wild registered a 3-3-0 record. They now head to Denver where they’ll complete the back half of a four-game home-and-home series with the Avalanche. The Wild have a 3-1-0 record on the road this season. Dating back to last season, the Wild have won 10 of their last 12 road games(10-2-0).
