Here’s an impressive start for the Wild: not only did they move to 5-2-1 with their 4-0 win over Buffalo on Thursday, but with Marco Scandella, Christian Folin and Nate Prosser assisting on goals, every skater on their active roster has a point this season. That’s pretty impressive considering it only took 8 games for the Wild to do that. It’s been a team effort all season for the Wild, who have 16 different goal scorers. That’s three more than any other team entering play last night.
Injury concerns continue for the Minnesota Vikings, who were missing two more key pieces to an already injury-decimated offense as the team returned to practice Thursday. Wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and running back Jerick McKinnon both missed practice Thursday.
