Wild Complete Season Sweep Over Knights in Vegas
The Minnesota Wild (40-24-7) beat the Las Vegas Golden Knights (45-21-5) 4-2 Friday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The Wild are the only team in the league to sweep the first place Knights in all three of their games this season.
The wild led 1-0 after the first period, and 3-0 after the second, but Las Vegas came back to score a pair in the third to bring things to 3-2 -- before Minnesota sealed it with an empty netter.
Scoring for the Wild came from Jason Zucker (29), Charlie Coyle (11), Matt Dumba (11), and the empty netter from Zach Parise (8).
With just eleven regular season games left, the Wild hang on to third place in the division, just ahead of Colorado and Dallas.
