Wild Top Rangers 7-4 in New York for 10th Straight Win
The Minnesota Wild (21-8-4) extended their winning streak to a franchise record ten games by beating the New York Rangers (23-12-1) 7-4 last night at Madison Square Garden in New York. The previous record of nine straight was set in 2016 and 2007.
The Wild are now just three points behind Chicago -- in second place in the Central Division, but have played three fewer games than the Blackhawks. Minnesota now enjoys the Christmas break before resuming the season on Tuesday.
Although no team has played fewer games in the NHL this season, only four teams have more points -- two of which the Wild beat this week (Canadiens, Rangers).
The Wild return home to the Xcel Energy Center with games against the New York Islanders on December 29th and the Columbus Blue Jackets on New Year's Eve.
