The Minnesota Wild are fast stealing the spotlight of this NHL season.
The season is just over a quarter of the way through, so there is plenty left to play, but it looks as though the Wild may be the team to beat this year.
After the recent meeting with the Edmonton Oilers, the fourth of six meetings between the teams this season, it is apparent that the Wild will have to take it one game at a time, but that they are headed on a victory path. The Wild won the first two games in shootouts before Edmonton won last week at the X. That win broke a 17-game losing streak for Edmonton in Minnesota.
