Defenseman Christian Folin won't have any difficulty locating TD Garden ahead of the Minnesota Wild's road game versus the Boston Bruins on Thursday.

Folin, after all, is a perfect 4-0-0 at the arena after helping UMass-Lowell post semifinal and final victories in both the 2013 and 2014 Hockey East conference tournaments.

“I love playing in that building,” Folin told the Wild's website. “I've played four games there so far and I've won all four of them, and it's a pretty special building. It was the best part of my college career to go play those games there at the Garden, and to win the Hockey East championship.”

Folin, who was unable to play in last season's visit to Boston, has set up one goal in 10 games in 2015-16. The 24-year-old Swede has recorded two tallies and 10 assists in 51 career contests.
