Watch: Nino Niederreiter scores 21 seconds in to give the Wild the lead

Nino has been heating up lately too.

It didn't take very long for the Wild to get on the board against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

On the opening shift, Nino Niederreiter put a loose puck top-shelf against Flyers goaltender Michal Neuvirth to give the Wild a 1-0 lead.
