Savage giving up too many targets

Minnesota has been an absolute disaster on the defensive end of the ice this season as they are allowing 6.67 goals per game. After another poor showing against the Colorado Avalanche, Wild head coach Dean Evason said, β€œIt’s on the goalie. He is on the defensive. He is in the forwards. He is in the cars. He depends on all of us.”

Minnesota has eliminated just 70 percent of the penalties this season, but they’ve also struggled in 5-on-5 action. The Wild have scored six power play goals in three games, but the offense can’t make up for the lack of defending.

Kirill Kaprizov had three goals and two assists, but Minnesota won’t win games until they figure out that defense.
