Minnesota pushes Carolina despite 57-23 disparity on the shot chart

ST. PAUL -- It's not unusual to see three or four goals scored with the extra attacker all season. 

It's quite rare to see it happen three times in one week.

The Wild was on the short end of such a scramble again on Saturday, losing a late lead against the Carolina Hurricanes before losing in overtime 5-4 at Xcel Energy Center.

Wild's best leads club to much-needed win over rival Blackhawks

Zucker, Staal, Suter and Parise each have multi-point nights as Minnesota finds the win column

by Dan Myers @MNWildScribe / Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- Desperately needing a win after back-to-back losses to open the 2018-19 regular season, the Wild got exactly what it wanted on Thursday: a galvanizing, emotional -- and somewhat unexpected, considering the circumstances -- victory against a division rival.

Minnesota looked buried twice in the game. 

In the first period, Chicago raced to a two-goal advantage, presenting the Wild with a deficit that matched its total offensive putout through two games.

From the Rink: Wild hoping third game against Chicago brings another 'W'

Minnesota started 0-1-1 last season as well before a victory over the Blackhawks gave the Wild its first win

by Dan Myers @DanMyers / Wild.com

ST. PAUL -- The results are indistinguishable. The circumstances are similar. And the opponent in game three is exactly the same.

The parallels between the start of the 2017-18 season and the 2018-19 season are quite remarkable.

Last season, the Wild lost 4-2 in Detroit, lost in a shootout to Carolina, then played the Chicago Blackhawks in game three.
