Post Game Notes vs. Ottawa (Dec. 16)
RW Daniel Alfredsson and LW Nick Foligno scored a second-period goal apiece and D Erik Karlsson notched three assists, as the Ottawa Senators defeated the Minnesota Wild 3-1 in front of 17,366 at Xcel Energy Center. C Kyle Brodziak scored a goal and G Jose Theodore made 22 saves for Minnesota, which plays at Calgary on Saturday.

C Kyle Brodziak scored his fifth goal of the season. It marked the first time this season Brodziak has scored one goal in a game. He scored two goals twice. Brodziak did have a second goal waved off tonight due to a too many men on the ice penalty.

RW Pierre-Marc Bouchard had an assist and now has five points (1-4=5) in seven games this season after missing 112 of 113 games with a concussion.

RW Martin Havlat picked up a helper and has 19 points (6-17=19) in his last 16 contests. On the year, Havlat leads the Wild with 28 points (7-21=28) in 30 games.

The Wild honored recent Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Dino Ciccarelli throughout the game.

Minnesota went 0-for-3 on the power play, snapping a streak of three straight games with a PPG. Ottawa went 2-for-2 on the man advantage. Tonight marked the third time in team history an opponent went 2-for-2, or 3-for-3, on the power play. The last time happened March 14, 2004, against Columbus. Colorado went 3-for-3 on Feb. 8, 2002.

Minnesota’s one home win (1-3-2) against Ottawa is tied for its fewest against any NHL team (Buffalo, New Jersey).

The Wild is 2-6-1 against the Eastern Conference this season after posting a 10-4-4 record against the East last season.

Minnesota wore its alternate jerseys for the sixth time this season. On the year, Minnesota has compiled a 3-2-1 record in its green sweaters but tonight had a three-game win streak snapped.

The Wild fell to 10-2-3 when scoring first, while Ottawa improved to 3-12-3 when allowing the first goal.

Minnesota is 1-4-1 in its last six home games, and 7-7-2 at Xcel Energy Center this season.
