(Newark, NJ) — In a game that was delayed almost 30 minutes due to heavy traffic, in the end the Wild figured out away to get both points from the Devils in a 3-2 shootout victory. The bus carrying the majority of the team was delayed getting to the Prudential Center due to traffic which moved the start of the game from 6:08 P-M to 6:33 P-M. The delay didn’t phase the Wild however as Ryan Hartman and Nico Sturm gave them a 2-0 lead after one period.
But the Devils made things interesting with a pair of third period goals – including the tying goal with just :67 seconds left on the clock. But in the end Cam Talbot stopped all three shots he faced in the shootout, Kevin Fiala scored the only goal and the Wild got the win to move to 1-1-1 on the three game trip. Minnesota is home on Friday afternoon to host the Winnipeg Jets.
