Kuemper returns as Wild’s 12th straight road win ties NHL record

BringMeTheNews.com

The Minnesota Wild rallied to score four unanswered goals in the second and third periods and beat the Nashville Predators 4-2, Thursday night in Nashville.

In doing so, the Wild won their 12th consecutive road game, equaling an NHL record set by the 2005-06 Detroit Red Wings. Just as impressive was how the Wild did it – without goalie Devan Dubnyk and the team’s three top goal scorers.

Having clinched a playoff spot on Tuesday, the Wild gave some of their top players the night off in Nashville.

Darcy Kuemper made his first start in net in three months. After a rocky beginning, Kuemper settled down and shut the door on the Predators the rest of the way, making 32 saves.
