MINNESOTA SPORTS ROUNDUP: Wild open season tonight against Los Angeles
ST. PAUL -- The Wild start the 2013 season tonight at home against the Los Angeles Kings. Wild defenseman Ryan Suter says he is excited to get the season after a grinding training camp, which included a two-day stop in Duluth earlier this week. The Wild finished with 55 points last season and grabbed the eighth seed in the playoffs but lost in the opening round to Chicago. The Kings were fifth in the West last year with 59 points. The puck is slated to drop tonight at 7 p.m.
