Eight Straight Wins for Minnesota Wild
The Minnesota Wild (19-8-4) extended their winning streak to eight games by defeating the visiting Colorado Avalanche (11-19-1) 2-0 last night at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. The Wild now embark on a three-game road trip before returning home on December 29th.
