It hasn't been easy in Columbus recently for the Wild when facing its expansion team brethren. The Blue Jackets were 9-1-1 in the month of December coming into Wednesday's action.
With Darcy Kuemper playing fairly strong in his crease but he saw some real flurries of action a little more frequently. One such flurry caused Kuemper to lose his stick and in his attempt to gather his paddle, Kevin Connaughton was able to sneak the puck through after taking a quick shot from the left half boards with just 46 seconds left to play in the period. It was a pretty soft goal and the kind we're hoping he could put behind him (figuratively, not literally).
