Despite the name, I highly doubt this game will end as wildly as the last.

Numbers for NerdsUnfortunately, there aren't a lot of stats to go over yet, but thanks to Jakob Silfverberg it's not ALL zeros. Minnesota lost their opener to the Kings 3-2 in the shootout on Thursday.

Team Records: Ducks 0-1-0, Wild 0-0-1 , Ducks 2013 Record vs. Wild 3-0-0

Team Leaders: Ducks - Silfverberg 1G, 1P (Nick Bonino and Mark Fistric also have 1P each); Francois Beauchemin 21:30 TOI/G; Ryan Getzlaf 7 PIM
Wild - Jonas Brodin and Matt Cooke tied with 1 G, Mikel Granlund 2 P (0-2-2); Ryan Suter 30:16 TOI/G; Zenon Konopka 7 PIM

Goalies: Ducks - Jonas Hiller will see his first action of the season, let's not talk about Viktor Fasth's numbers yet
Wild - Niklas Backstrom 0-0-1, 1.85 GAA, .899 Sv%

Power Play: Ducks - went 0 for 2 Wednesday at Colorado
Wild - 1 for 5 in their opener (20.0%) with Brodin scoring the goal

Penalty Kill: Ducks - another ugly number 2 for 4 (sounds like 50% to me)
Wild - 2 for 3 against LA (aka 66.7%)
