Wild runs out of gas late in loss to Hurricanes

Carolina scores three late goals as Minnesota can't finish off weekend sweep

by Dan Myers @MNWildScribe / Wild.com

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Down by a goal with 20 minutes remaining on Saturday night, the Wild had a decent chance at pulling off a weekend sweep of Eastern Conference opponents.

Following a 2-1 win against the defending Stanley Cup champions in Washington on Friday, the Wild trailed by the same score after 40 minutes here just 24 hours later.

But playing for the second time in as many nights -- this time without its leading scorer, Zach Parise, who missed the game because of a lower-body injury -- proved too much for Minnesota. Carolina scored three times in the first 11:12 of the final frame to close out a 5-1 win.

The contest marks the return of Victor Rask to his old stomping grounds. The Wild centerman spent the first 4 1/2 years of his NHL career with the Hurricanes after being drafted 42nd overall in the 2011 NHL Draft. 

"It's definitely going to be fun," Rask said on Friday. "It's going to be a special night for sure."

by Dan Myers @MNWildScribe / Wild.com

WASHINGTON -- The Wild got a glimpse into its future on Friday night in the nation's capital. If the early returns are any indication, the next few years could be pretty fun.

Luke Kunin scored the game-winning goal, Jordan Greenway added a highlight-reel tally of his own and Ryan Donato had a pair of assists as Minnesota rolled into Capital One Arena and left with a 2-1 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champions. 

Going against some of the best players in the world, Minnesota's line of early 20-somethings was the most impactful of the night.
