Wild forward Dany Heatley says he's surprised by the first-place team's depth. Injury concerns have caused the Wild to rely heavily on their younger, less experienced lines. Heatley says it's exciting to see young players step up each night.
Poor starts are hurting the Wild
If the Wild doesn't score first, they probably won't win. Minnesota lost five of its last seven games in which they didn't score the first goal. Forward Dany Heatley says "it's natural" for a young team to struggle to score goals, but every player needs to remember the Wild has "come back in a lot of games this year."
