The Minnesota Wild have fallen on tough times, and they fell once again on Monday evening.
Following three straight losses, the Wild found no comfort in Vancouver, as Henrik Sedin, Ryan Kessler, Alexandre Burrows and Jannik Hansen scored to push Minnesota's losing streak to four games in a 4-0 loss. This streak follows a run of seven straight wins.
Henrik Sedin opened the scoring in the first period with a power play goal and he assisted on the next two goals. The Sedins caused headaches for Minnesota all evening, as Daniel Sedin also assisted on the first three goals.
Minnesota stays stuck on 45 points after the loss while Vancouver, with 42 points, has now drawn to within just three points of the Wild for first place in the Northwest Division.
The Wild will have no time to dwell, as they will be back on the ice on Tuesday night as they travel to face the Calgary Flames, owners of a 14-5-4 record.
