Stalock perfect in net as Wild shut out Senators for first win of season

  Stalock perfect in net as Wild shut out Senators for first win of season OTTAWA — The Minnesota Wild stuck to their defensive plan Monday and it paid off to give them their first win of the season. Alex Stalock stopped all 26 shots he faced for his sixth career shutout, and the Wild held Ottawa off the scoreboard through five power plays in a 2-0 win over the Senators. "I think the biggest thing was commitment to playing team defence," said Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau. "When the puck was in our zone it was stops and starts. We gave up chances, but you're going to give up chances every game to an NHL team."It's a good start.

Jason Zucker regrets calling out head coach Bruce Boudreau earlier this week.

"I'll start by first apologizing to Bruce. There was no reason for me to use his name in that quote in any way," Zucker said to the media on Saturday. "My intention with the quote was to state that everybody needs to be better ... 99.9% of that is on the players."

Zucker's comments were made after the Minnesota Wild lost 4-0 to the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday, dropping their record to 1-6-0.

Despite the harsh criticism, it seems Boudreau understood where his player was coming from.

"His whole thing was that everyone has to be better. He didn't intend, or want to center me out," Boudreau said.

The veteran forward clarified he still wants to see a stronger effort from his teammates.

"I stand by the fact that A) it was my mistake, but I also stand by the fact that everybody does need to be better."
