Colorado Avalanche

Kuemper Bottles Up Avs As Wild Win 3-0
Darcy Kuemper doesn't really want to be in net when the high-scoring Colorado Avalanche finally break out of their offensive funk.

The Minnesota Wild goalie will gladly take his second straight shutout of the Avalanche and leave town, not having to face them again until February.
Wild Start Hot
Zach Parise scored one of Minnesota's four goals in the second period and assisted on two others, helping the Wild overwhelm Semyon Varlamov and the Colorado Avalanche 5-0 in the season opener Thursday night.
Unlikely Hero
Nino Niederreiter hesitated for just a moment after scoring the winning goal, not sure whether what he just saw had actually occurred.

It happened, all right. His Minnesota teammates suddenly skating over to mob him made the moment real.
Not Done Yet
The Minnesota Wild gave Zach Parise all that money for games like this. Parise signed that megadeal two years ago for games even bigger than this.

They forced at least one more with a furious finish.
