When Jason Pominville was leaving the hotel this morning for the arena, several Buffalo fans requested signatures on his old Sabres sweater. After playing nearly 600 games with the Sabres, tonight marks the first time he’ll skate at First Niagara Center as a member of the Minnesota Wild.

The game of hockey is like the Solar System: Humongous big. Hulking players, huge hits, large ice surface and giant arenas. But in a game where bigger is often considered better, the difference between winning and losing is often found in the little things—the details.

Only three (winless) games in and the injury bug is already biting hard.

Kicked out of its home due to concerts this week, the Wild voyaged to Saint Thomas Ice Arena for practice Monday.

Fresh off the bus, already partially dressed, the Wild quickly changed in small dressing rooms simply lined with benches. Welcome to The Show everyone!

Everything was abuzz Thursday as the Wild quickly approached the season-opening puck drop.

Hockey had returned to Minnesota for another year and the Wild put on a strong showing before falling in a shootout loss to the Kings 3-2. Watching it all from the stands was Mathew Dumba.

A mere 12 hours after Opening Night shenanigans wrapped up at Xcel Energy Center, the Wild were back on the ice, trying to shake that unique, disappointing feeling that seems to linger after taking a shootout loss.

It’s like taking an upper cut to the gut and getting a sticker for your troubles.

Over the course of an 82-game National Hockey League regular season, few games match the feeling of Opening Night. There is always a great opening ceremony, the entire lineup is introduced, the players are chomping at the bit to start meaningful games and State of Hockey fans are jacked like a sixth grader after a six pack of energy drinks.

So with all that as the backdrop, the Minnesota Wild hosts the Los Angeles Kings tonight in the home opener at Xcel Energy Center.

An up-tempo practice for the Wild at Xcel Energy Center this morning, after the team had Saturday off. The Wild departed after practice for a couple of days of team building in Duluth, including that Tuesday 10 a.m. open practice at Amsoil Arena. If you're going, and on Twitter (who isn't), use #mnwildinduluth.

The NHL roster deadline is tomorrow for Opening Night, but the Wild got down today, assigning Jason Zucker, Jake Dowell and Brett Bulmer to AHL Iowa. The Wild is at 23 players - although Mike Rupp has not skated with the team coming off an injury. Seeing as though the opener is four days away, the Wild could potentially put Mike Rupp on IR and recall a forward for opening night if needed.
