The Minnesota Wild might just be the hottest team in the NHL right now. They strengthened their argument on Sunday, eking out a 2-1 regulation win against the Winnipeg Jets, who brought a four-game winning streak into tonight’s action.
The usual suspects carried the Wild to victory.
Josh Harding won his fourth game in a row as he continues to make a Vezina run seem more and more feasible. He hasn’t lost in regulation since Oct. 17 and has only allowed more than two goals once this season (three goals allowed in a Nov. 1 win against Carolina).
Mikko Koivu scored both of the Wild’s goals, doubling his total for the season from two to four. (He isn’t slacking, though; Koivu has 17 points in 21 games.)
The good news for the Jets is that they’re hanging in there and Dustin Byfuglien seems to be getting that bounces that eluded him earlier this season. All four of his goals – including one tonight – have come in the last four games.
