How has the Wild offense Managed to Find Another Gear without Kirill Kaprizov?

Locked On Wild - Your Daily Minnesota Wild Podcast

Mar 17 2023 • 31 mins

On today's episode of Locked on Wild, we look at the factors which have led the Wild to score 17 goals in the 3 games since Kirill Kaprizov was injured. We look at offensive leaders such as Mats Zuccarello, Ryan Hartman and Matt Boldy stepping up to lead the way. We also discuss the emergence of the 4th line to provide offensive output, which in turn leads to more ice time for them and keeps all 4 lines more evenly rotated throughout the game. We also discuss the contributions of Bill Guerin's Trade Deadline acquisitions, and how they have managed to seamlessly gel with their new linemates. We discuss John Klingberg being able to help lead the Wild defensemen into contributing as well. All in all it has been a team effort in making sure the offense generates enough goals until 97 is ready to return.
