The champs are 1-1-0 on the season after falling to the Calgary Flames last week 5-3. The Avs opened the season with an easy win over the Chicago Blackhawks. All in all, it’s about what you’d expect from Colorado. Mikko Rantanen has five assists to lead the team in points. Nathan MacKinnon has a goal and three assists so far this season.
The Wild may be off to the most concerning start of any team this season. Minnesota has allowed seven goals in back-to-back losses, the most recent a 7-6 defeat by the hands of the Los Angeles Kings. While the Wild have allowed 14 goals in two games, they’ve also scored nine goals, so adjustments need to be made on defense. LW Matt Boldy has been great early in his second season, scoring two goals with two assists.
