The Minnesota Wild had a rough night Thursday. Firstly, the Wild traded away forward Nino Niederreiter and afterward lost a game against the Anaheim Ducks, who finally broke their 12-game losing streak. Minnesota seemed to disappoint with moving Niederreiter and then got booed after not scoring a single goal in a loss against the Ducks.
In their last 15 games, the Wild have won just five times. Just two teams have been worse than the Wild in the meantime and they are the Colorado Avalanche and Arizona Coyotes. After a very strong start to the season, the Wild are struggling and seemingly cannot catch a break.
Minnesota Wild defenseman, Mathew Dumba, left Saturday’s game against the Calgary Flames in the first period. He sustained an upper-body injury, which we have now discovered will force Dumba to miss three months.
