Nashville Hands Wild First Loss 23 Jan 13

The Minnesota Wild finished off a three game home stand to open the regular season by hosting the Nashville Predators last night in St. Paul. Despite Dany Heatley’s third goal of the season the Wild dropped their first decision and fell to the Predators 3-1. Both Heatley and Zach Parise have points in all three games this season yet the Wild fall to 2-1 on the young season. They’ll next be on the ice Friday night at 6:30 from Joe Louis Arena when they face off against the Detroit Red Wings in their first road contest of the season.
