Kuemper was the about the only bright spot in a game where the Wild struggled to get there legs. They were terrible at clearing the puck out of the defensive zone, and were running into a brick wall in the neutral zone. It was a near constant onslaught against the young netminder through the opening 2 periods. The Wild didn't deserve to win the game, and the only reason they were able to muster up a loser point was because of a winning performance from Kuemper.
It was game winning performance from Dacry Kuemper, unfortunately the Wild were playing on the 2nd night of back-to-backs and didn't seem to get the memo that there was a hockey game until it was too late.
