This was supposed to be a productive season for the Minnesota Wild after their big off-season acquisitions of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter.
But Parise hasn't scored in three consecutive games. Neither has Dany Heatley. And the Wild has yet to win a road game. "Put that together with the fact that the other three lines cannot be counted on to score, and the Wild's got issues," Russo writes. Coach Mike Yeo said he will look at the lines for the Phoenix game Monday. He said he can't keep "throwing those guys out and hope something else works. We need other guys to step up and contribute and if we have to break things up to do that, we'll look to do that."
