10/11/08 Boston @ Minnesota: Preview
The Bruins are coming off a season opening 5-4 victory over the Colorado Avalanche. The Wild play their home opener tonight. They place a very defensive game not allowing very many shots on goal. The Wild are not offensively gifted with Marian Gaborik carrying most of the load, but he comes into with a contract issue and trade rumors. Manny Fernandez looks like he is going to get the start against his former team tonight.
Keys to winning:
-Better defensive play, less turnovers.
-No stupid penalties (you Aaron Ward).
-Take advantage of opportunities.
Minnesota will come out flying on adrenaline, and the Bruins will have trouble finding the back of the net with Minnesota's trap style.
