WILD AT LOS ANGELES KINGS
THURSDAY, OCT. 8 AT 9:30 PM
STAPLES CENTER, LOS ANGELES
TV: FOX Sports North (HD broadcast)
RADIO: 830 WCCO AM (Pregame begins at 9:05 PM)
ONLINE: www.wild.com


Tuesday's home opener was just one win, while 80 games remain on the Wild's docket. But with a Head Coach looking for his first NHL win, a collection of players learning a new system and the aforementioned road trip looming, Tuesday's win was huge. Mikko Koivu, Petr Sykora and Eric Belanger tallied goals prior to Brunette's OT winner. Martin Havlat chipped in three assists to bring his career point total to 400. Niklas Backstrom earned his first win of the season, but he will yield to Josh Harding, who will make his first start of the season tonight.


Team Record: 1-1-0 (2 points)
Last Game: 4-3 OT W vs. Anaheim (Oct-6, 2009)
Western Conference Ranking: T-7th
Northwest Division Ranking: T-3rd


Team Record: 1-1-0 (2 points)
Last Game: 6-4 W vs. San Jose (Oct-6, 2009)
Western Conference Ranking: T-7th
Pacific Division Ranking: T-2nd


The focus tonight will be on starting goaltender, Josh Harding. Richards made it clear that he does not want Harding to sit for weeks at a time without getting into the game. He also raved about Harding's fitness level and performances in preseason. There is an underlying issue here that will no doubt become more talked about as the season progresses.

Speculation has surrounded Harding for years due to his solid performances, yet inability to secure the number one goaltending job in Minnesota. Many view Harding has General Manager Chuck Fletcher's ace in the hole should he ever feel the need to make a significant in-season trade. Does his start this early in the season mean he's being showcased around the League, or is Todd Richards intent on giving Niklas Backstrom more rest and seeing what he has in his young goaltender?


Todd Richards shuffled his lines up to spark his team in the third period on Tuesday, and it obviously worked. He's going to stay with those groups tonight, but one thing he won't change is Minnesota's number one power play unit. Brunette, Koivu and Havlat have been dynamic together with the man advantage. In just two games, the trio combined for three goals and six assists. All of those came on the power play, save for Havlat's assist on Sykora's goal, the only even strength marker the Wild have recorded thus far.


Brent Burns is picked by many to make 2009-2010 his breakout season. Playing in a new system, Burns will be skating with the puck on his stick a lot more, and on Tuesday, he could be seen as low as the opponent's goal line. Burns has yet to record a point, but look for him to get on the score sheet tonight. Call Vegas and see what the odds are on that.


Richards is breaking up his top line of Brunette, Koivu and Havlat tonight, putting Havlat on a line with friend and countryman, Sykora:

~ Brunette-Koivu-Clutterbuck
~ Sykora-Belanger-Havlat
~ Miettinen-Sheppard-Nolan
~ Scott-Pouliot-Brodziak
~ Schultz-Johnsson
~ Burns-Zanon
~ Hnidy-Zidlicky


"The more time you spend in the offensive zone, the less time you're spending in your own zone."

-- Todd Richards, on how his team shut down the Ducks completely in Tuesday's third period. Anaheim recorded two shots on goal and zero goals.


It's Student Night at Staples Center, so with a valid student ID, you can get a ticket for tonight's tilt for $12. That's not too shabby, but then again, $12 can get you 12 adult beverages at several establishments that I frequented in the college days. Not that I ever indulged.


Jaime Sifers has yet to make an appearance this season, and he'll have to wait at least one more game.


Josh Harding will get the start tonight. In his career, Harding is 2-1-0 all-time against the Kings, with a 1.06 goals against average and a .965 save percentage.


Kings D Jack Johnson is a Shattuck St. Mary's product. D Sean O'Donnell was the first captain in Wild history, back in 2000. D Davis Drewiske isn't technically a Minnesota product, but he is from Hudson, so we'll give him the benefit of the doubt. We accept him as one of our own.


The Kings defeated the Wild all four times they played in 2008-2009. They were the only team to sweep the Wild last year when facing them four or more times.
