The Wild dominated that game and dictated where it would be played which was on the perimeter. Bad passes and an inability to generate offense is what the Stars showed.
Maybe in the excitement of getting green jerseys back, you were watching the team dressed in green last night?
My seats were in the end where the Stars shot twice. By far, the majority of the action was in front of us in the 1st period, and in the other end during the 2nd. Even the Wild fans around us agreed about that. In the 3rd, it evened out quite a bit. Our D was generally in good position, but they did make a few mistakes that Nilsthorp (??) covered up (amazingly well).
I don't see why the fans need to be freaking out to this degree and talking about who to blame after the 2nd game of the season. The Stars - without their best skater and #1 goaltender - were a shot/bounce or two away from beating a very good team. Granted, we were a shot/bounce or two away from losing 4-0, as well, but the other team is trying to win too.
