With 4:55 left in the 2nd 3-0 Wild.

Edit: Play was challenged as off side. Challenge was upheld. Back to 2-0 Wild.

NOTES: Gustavsson is the fourth Wild goalie to get a shutout in a season opener (Darcy Kuemper, 2014; Niklas Backstrom, 2007; Dwayne Roloson, 2001)

Gologaski and Middleton are an issue and those issues cannot be solved given their cap issues.

I’d say the wheels on the Gus bus fell off last night in their 7-4 thrashing by the Leafs. Of course he didn’t get much help from his defense minus Faber.

Looks like Fleury will pick up a win tonight. He's closing in on some notable numbers with a good chance to reach 2nd in all-time Wins and 4th in total games played. From the Strib.

By making his season debut, Fleury will officially resume the countdown to becoming the second-winningest goaltender of all time.

At 544 victories, Fleury needs only eight more to pass childhood idol Patrick Roy for the second most in NHL history.

Fleury is also 15 games away from 1,000, a rare milestone for netminders that only three have achieved.

just looked at the box score.

Wild with 5 goals - 2 Short-handed and 3 Power-Play. No even-strength. there's an odd box score.

He was very good last night. Nice to see considering Montreal is his hometown and probably his last time playing there

The Athletic's take on "What we've learned early this season so far" on each team, here's the Wild;

>>The back end is thin: Not many teams can survive the loss of a top-pair defenseman, but Jared Spurgeon’s training camp injury reminded just how little depth the Wild have. They’ve had to go with Alex Goligoski, Jon Merrill and Calen Addison, three players who were consistent scratches down the stretch last season, and now have lost Goligoski for up to two months. That left only minor-leaguer Dakota Mermis to insert, with no more veteran depth defensemen in the minors to call up. That means one more injury and they’ll be rushing a young defenseman into their lineup. It’s peculiar that the Wild didn’t sign any other veteran defensemen for Iowa this season. Jonas Brodin and Brock Faber have performed well, but one big concern has been the play of Jake Middleton without his defense partner, Spurgeon. He has been on the ice for nine goals against this season, tied for third-most in the NHL. His eight goals against at five-on-five is tied for the worst. — Michael Russo

Ryan Hartman sucks.
97 and 36 are way too cute for their own good.
Is the wilds plan to play rope-a-door with every opponent this year and get outshot by a 2-1 margin.

Oh man you could just see that Kaprizov and Zuccarello had been on the ice too long.
