Wild Blog: Darcy Kuemper, A Rising NHL Star

WOW! That is the only word I have to describe how the Wild pulled off two shutouts in a row against the Colorado Avalanche — a team that won the Central Division last year, a team we faced in the first round of the playoffs, a team we had to battle to beat in game 7 at their rink in overtime! To say I’m impressed with how this year’s Wild team has started the season would be the understatement of the year.
