MONTREAL (Ticker) - The Minnesota Wild started off as hot as a club can get, but have not been very good since.

The Wild look to turn their fortunes around when they visit the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday.

Minnesota started this season 9-1-0 but has dropped seven of 10 since.

Minnesota looks to rebound from a 5-3 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Monday. Pascal Dupuis, Mikko Koivu and Brian Rolston scored for the Wild, who outshot Ottawa, 45-33.

The Canadiens have been a mild surprise so far this season, and have won three of their last four.

Montreal plays its first game since a 3-1 triumph over the Atlanta Thrashers on Saturday. Cristobal Huet made 39 saves for the Canadiens, who received goals from Alexander Perezhogin, Radek Bonk and Michael Ryder.

Bonk also added an assist for the Canadiens, who went 1-for-5 on the power play.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
