Let’s just get this out of the way now: workhorse defenseman Ryan Suter will play in career game No. 600 tonight against, who else, the Nashville Predators — the same team with which he spent the first seven years of his career.

Sometimes, the best sort of medicine for curing disappointment is just hunkering down and putting in some hard work.

In a long practice Monday, that’s exactly what the Wild did. From working on odd-man rushes, to special teams and 3-on-3 zone drills, the Wild seemed to cover it all coming off an unsatisfactory road trip where it went 1-2-1.

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.

Take a moment to imagine this scenario. You’re sitting in net, garbed in your finest goalie gear.

The rush is coming at you and Kyle Brodziak winds up and unleashes a shot. It goes high, right at your face.

On the same day the Wild reduced its roster size to 28, one staple of its lineup was excused from practice – for good reason.

Mikko Koivu was absent from practice today as his fiancée Helena went into labor with their first child. Now if everything goes well, fans can expect Mikko in the lineup tomorrow night as the Wild take on the Blues in its fifth preseason game, and final one at home before the season opener Oct. 3 against the Kings.

Ten days, people, 10 days until opening night. 

Now that I’ve got you all excited with thoughts about the looming regular season and the promises it holds, including a nice distraction from yet another failed Twins season and the starting quarterback that is Christian Ponder, time to focus on today.

While Wild has checked off two preseason games, some players have yet to see any game action.

As Ryan Suter put it, days on days of practice is starting to feel like "Groundhog Day"—a classic I’ll admit I’ve never seen.
