Opponent Notes:
– Minnesota is 1-5-1 in its last six road games.

– Wild starting goaltender Josh Harding was placed on injured reserve Wednesday in order to evaluate his medication for multiple sclerosis.

– Niklas Backstrom has lost five straight starts while posting a 3.23 GAA.

– Zach Parise has just one points (a goal) and is a -4 in his last five games.

– Yeah, that Matt Cooke. The same idiot who did this to Ryan McDonagh in 2011…

…hey look, the 2010-11 team didn't standup for each other either as not a single Rangers player even bothered to skate over to Cooke after that disgusting elbow.
