Minnesota Wild Roster skates a great game to beat the Canadiens

The Minnesota Wild have had less than a perfect season, with several losses and some very sloppy skating early on, it was becoming hard to call myself a true Minnesota Wild fan...

Last night helped to change that, The Wild skated against the Montreal Canadiens, winning 3-1. Mikko Koivu provided strong leadership on the ice, directing most of the MN Wild offense. "Early in the game, you get the lead and you get the team going, and I think it's important on the road," Koivu said. "We did a pretty good job defensively, even if they had a lot of shots. In the third period we tried to keep it tight in the middle, and obviously Backstrom played a great game so that always helps."

Niklas Backstrom had a great game, blocking several shots and taking his personal winning streak to 4 games, while the Minnesota Wild are currently on a two game winning streak and are hopeful to extend that tonight with a game against the Senators.
