Minnesota Wild Aren't Hitting Panic Button After Slow Start

October 09, 2018 06:01 PM

The Wild are struggling to find any kind of offense -- the team has scored a mere two goals in two games. It's not due to a lack of effort was a theme in the locker room Tuesday.

"We need to create more scoring chances," forward Zach Parise said. "We need to be more aggressive in the offensive zone and find ways to put the puck in the net. It's way too soon to be concerned with the lack of productivity on offense. We know it and we need to fix it sooner than later."


After the Wild dropped their first game at home to Vegas on Saturday night, the team won't play again until Thursday night when they host the Blackhawks. This gives coach Bruce Boudreau and his team the opportunity to make changes to see what will get the offense going.

"We'll take this time to practice and try and find out what will work for us, whether it's line changes or just given the guys some added drills to find their stride. But for now we won't let these things bother us," Boudreau said.
