Anyone going to watch this one? I admit I will probably be otherwise occupied.
The Wild get to play the two best teams in the Central in their first two games, and both on the road. What fun!
The Avalanche will be pretty heavy favorites in this one.
GAME 1 RECAP - PREDATORS 5, WILD 2:
- Parise/Staal/Zuccarello went -3 and generated 1 shot on goal. It would have been worse if not for Dubnyk standing on his head here.
HAVE MERCY, Devan Dubnyk! 👀

- Dumba got a goal, so he's on pace for at least 80 this season. That will be exciting.
- Playing on the road against Nashville is a tough way to start the season, but it feels worse when the Wild blow a third period lead. File game 1 under missed opportunity.
