1 p.m. ET; TSN5, RDS, FS-N, FS-WI, NHL.TV
The Minnesota Wild will try to end the worst start to a season in their history when they visit the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Monday.
Minnesota has lost each of its first four games in regulation while being outscored 21-10. Goalie Devan Dubnyk could make his fifth straight start for Minnesota. He is 0-4-0 with a 4.55 goals-against average and .862 save percentage.
Goalie Craig Anderson could start for Ottawa, which defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2 on Saturday for its first win of the season.
Players to watch
Wild forward Gerald Mayhew was recalled from Iowa of the American Hockey League on Sunday and could make his NHL debut. He has six points (three goals, three assists) in four AHL games.
Senators forward Vladislav Namestnikov has four points (two goals, two assists) in two games since being acquired in a trade with the New York Rangers on Oct. 7.
They said it
"Goal scoring is not going to be our forte. Defending has got to be our forte if we're going to win. So people have to change their mindsets. Instead of thinking we're 30 and 40-goal scorers, we've got to play a 200-foot game. And I'm not singling anybody out. All 20 players have got to be that." -- Wild coach Bruce Boudreau
"[Namestnikov] allows us to have a lot more depth. I thought I could roll three lines pretty good [Saturday against the Lightning]. … It allows me to have a lot more depth, especially on the penalty kill. I can roll six guys, and we are a lot quicker." -- Senators coach D.J. Smith
Wild projected lineup
Zach Parise -- Mikko Koivu -- Jason Zucker
Kevin Fiala -- Eric Staal -- Ryan Hartman

Brady Tkachuk -- Colin White -- Tyler Ennis
Anthony Duclair -- Chris Tierney -- Bobby Ryan
Vladislav Namestnikov -- Artem Anisimov -- Connor Brown
Mikkel Boedker -- Jean-Gabriel Pageau -- Scott Sabourin

Boudreau said Zuccarello has "bumps and bruises" from the 7-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. He will make the trip but is questionable to play. … Anisimov left the game in the second period against the Lightning with a lower-body injury and did not return. Smith said the injury is "nothing serious" and he's "hoping [Anisimov's] going to play Monday."
Boudreau needs two wins to tie Billy Reay (542) for 23rd place in NHL history. … Hunt has three points (one goal, two assists) in his past two games. … Pageau has four points (one goal, three assists) in four games.
