The Wild have been a little bit lost on the year so far. The offense for the Wild has really had some problems going, but what is really shocking is how poor the defense has been for the Wild this year. The games the Wild have lost on the year have not even been close to being competitive on the year and that will definitely prove to be a major issue for the Wild if nothing changes soon.
Devan Dubnyk is the goalie the Wild have been relying on net this season. Dubnyk is usually one of the best goalies the team can find in the league, but this year he has struggled. HE is giving up an average of 3.58 goals a game, but has only managed to save 88.7% of the shot that have come towards him this year.
The Jets are coming into the game here after picking up a 3 goal win over the Penguins on Tuesday night. Now, that win is not that impressive on its own until you consider that the leader for the Jets was Ville Heinola the defenseman who is fairly new to the team. He even went into the game and managed to get his first goal in his young career.
A shocker for the Jets this year is coming in the net. This year the Jets have had Hellebuyck in the net, but he has not been the leader for the Jets in net. That actually falls to Laurent Brossoit who has manage to post a 1-1 record in net, but is allowing only 3.84 goals a game with an 88.9% save percentage which has some of the fans questioning what is going on with Hellebuyck this year.
