Wild Lose 3-2 at Nashville, Still Winless

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013 at 8:12 am

Filip Forsberg and Colin Wilson scored power-play goals 39 seconds apart in the first period, and the Nashville Predators earned their first win of the season with a 3-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night in their home opener. Zach Parise scored a power-play goal, and Jared Spurgeon also scored for the Wild.

Minnesota lost goalie Niklas Backstrom to a lower body injury in the first when Nystrom crashed into him after being tripped on a breakaway. The Wild said Backstrom will be evaluated Wednesday.

Josh Harding replaced Backstrom, but he gave up the goal to Nystrom. The Wild remain winless on the season
