The Minnesota Wild waited at home this week for tonight’s game versus the Jets, having not played since Tuesday night against Buffalo.

Hannah Foslien / The Associated Press
Winnipeg Jets’ Dustin Byfuglien (33), Jacob Trouba (8) and Andrew Ladd (16) congratulate right wing Blake Wheeler (26) on a goal against the Minnesota Wild during the first period of an NHL hockey game Friday, Jan. 15, 2016, in St. Paul, Minn.

That was a 3-2 loss, giving Minnesota two defeats in a row and three in the last four. After tonight’s game, the Wild go out on the road for seven of the next eight.

Defenceman Ryan Suter had a goal and two points for the Wild on Tuesday, trying to rally from a 3-0 deficit.

That gives Suter 30 points in 43 games this season, second only to team leader Mikko Koivu. Suter’s excellence has made him the team’s plus-minus leader this season, now at plus-13.

The Wild have lost two of the first three games versus the Jets this season, including a Nov. 27 home game of 3-1 in which they generated only 15 shots on goal.

The Wild have been hard to beat when they get ahead. The team is 19-4-2 this season when scoring first and 15-0-1 when taking a lead to the third period.
