Wild Streak Ends Despite Dominating Performance
The Minnesota Wild saw their modest three game winning streak end with a 4-1 loss at Toronto Tuesday night. Minnesota outshot the Maple Leafs 37-14 but could only beat Leafs goaltender James Reimer once.
Toronto scored the game’s first two goals in the opening period. The first was a power play goal at 4:24 by Tyler Bozak, and the second a Trevor Smith goal at 13:51 at even strength.
The Wild got on the board late in the first period with Jason Pominville scoring his third of the season at 17:27. The power play goal was assisted by Mikko Koivu and Zach Parise.
Mason Raymond’s power play goal at 12:23 of the second period would be the last allowed by Minnesota goalie Darcy Kuemper, who allowed three goals on just seven shots.
The Maple Leafs completed the scoring with Raymond’s second of the game, in the third period.
The Wild are now 3-2-2 and will head to Tampa Bay for a game with the Lightning Thursday night.
