Wild head coach Todd Richards, captain Mikko Koivu and center John Madden talked after the Wild opened the season with a 4-3 loss to Carolina Thursday in Finland.
Todd Richards “We got off to a good start. I think we were pretty happy the way the first period went. It was disappointing giving up a late goal – a power play goal. We came out in the second period, and I think we had a couple of good shifts early on where we generated some good scoring opportunities, and then we started taking penalties.
