The Minnesota Wild have had a really inconsistent season thus far. They're sitting at 4-3-3 and are coming off a 1-0 shutout of the Detroit Red Wings. It's not a bad place to be, but with offseason acquisitions in Dany Heatley and Devin Setoguchi, the team hoped it would be in a better place at this point. The play has just been too inconsistent from all fronts, but you can only keep playing, and the Wild are starting off the next week of games looking to setup a winning streak following the win over Detroit.
November kicks off with a three games in the first week, two of them at home and one of them a rematch of Saturday's matchup. They'll head to Detroit on Tuesday to take on the Red Wings for the third time this season. It will be the third of four matchups between the teams this year. It's set for 7:30 p.m. eastern and can be seen on the usual Fox Sports North.
Following that, they'll take on the Vancouver Canucks on Nov. 3 at home. The two teams met on Oct 22 and Minnesota was handed a 3-2 overtime loss. Vancouver is 5-5-1 on the season and will end up playing the Calgary Flames on Tuesday before taking on the Wild. That game is set for 8:00 p.m. eastern on Thursday, and can be seen on Fox Sports North.
The week will wrap up on Saturday, Nov. 5 against the St. Louis Blues at the Xcel Energy Center. It's the first of four meetings this season between these two teams. Through 11 games, the Blues are 5-6 on the season andwill play the Canucks on Nov. 4 before taking on the Wild. That game is set for 8:00 p.m. on Nov. 5.
