Wild rookies come through in win over Dallas
SAINT PAUL — Relying on rookies in the NHL is a high-risk, high-reward idea. On Saturday night, the Minnesota Wild took the risk, and reaped the rewards.
Rookies Matt Dumba and Justin Fontaine scored their first NHL goals as the Wild cruised to a 5-1 win over the Dallas Stars.
Matt Cooke, Nino Niederreiter and Zach Parise also scored for the Wild, who improved to 2-1-2.
