The Minnesota Wild are desperate. And we mean desperate.
Minnesota could be monitoring the Buffalo Sabres' crease in an effort to remedy its own troubles in goal, Sportsnet's Damien Cox reported on Hockey Night in Canada's "Headlines" segment Saturday night.
Despite their league-worst 3.40 goals-against average, the Sabres' tandem of Jhonas Enroth and Michal Neuvirth have significantly outplayed the Wild's duo this season. Buffalo jumps to 18th in terms of 5-on-5 save percentage, sporting a .921 clip, while Minnesota ranks dead last at .901.
So crazy that it just might work.
