Wild look to sweep opening homestand


A Wild win on opening Saturday.

A Wild shutout against Dallas on Sunday.

So far, so good for Minnesota's NHL entry to kick off the lockout-shortened season.

The final game of the season-opening homestand is tonight against Nashville, the former home of Wild defenseman Ryan Suter.

Suter, who was drafted by the Predators in 2003, tells the Star Tribune that while he's still close to a lot of guys on the team, he's "looking forward to beating them."

A Wild win would improve the club's record to 3-0-0, which would match their best start since 2008-09, when it went 4-0-0 to start the season.

Nashville, a team that has defeated the Wild six of their last seven meetings, is off to a slow start this year -- losing back-to-back shootouts.
