The Canadiens are 6-1-1 after a narrow shoot out win in a game they probably should have lost.
The Canadiens are finally meeting some competitive teams and getting tested. They meet the Wild in Minnesota tonight. The Wild have an identical record and are known to be notoriously stingy at home.
Notably, the Wild’s Captain is Saku Koivu’s ‘little’ brother Mikko. Always fun to watch two brothers face off against each other.
The Wild of course are coached by and start several French Canadians which always adds some competitive fire to the mix when playing the Habs.
