KEY GAME INFORMATION
MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 45-26-11, 101 points. Third in Central Division.
LOST to Winnipeg Jets in Western Conference quarterfinals.
COACH: Bruce Boudreau (third season, 12th NHL season).
ADDED: RW J.T. Brown, C Eric Fehr, C Matt Hendricks, RW Matt Read, D Greg Pateryn, D Matt Bartkowski.
LOST: C Matt Cullen, LW Tyler Ennis, RW Daniel Winnik.
PLAYER TO WATCH: LW Zach Parise. After missing the first 39 games because of a lower back problem that required surgery, Parise's delayed start was predictably slow. He scored 12 goals in his last 18 games of the regular season, though, and scored in each of the first three playoff games until being knocked out of action again by a broken sternum. Parise, who's entering his 14th NHL season at age 34, isn't built to be the team's premier scorer but needs to replicate that productivity down the stretch to help keep the offense balanced.
OUTLOOK: New GM Paul Fenton made only minor moves this summer for fresh faces on the fourth line and more depth on defense, so the Wild will rely on the same core that has been bounced out of the playoffs in the first round three straight times and won only two series over the last six years. Just reaching the postseason again in the rugged Western Conference would be an accomplishment in itself, and Boudreau has as strong of an 82-game track record as any bench boss in the league. Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter, who's coming off a serious ankle injury that kept him out of the playoffs, must stay healthy throughout the seventh year of their identical $98 million megadeals. Wings Charlie Coyle and Nino Niederreiter also have to bounce back from down seasons.
NASHVILLE: LAST SEASON: 53-18-11, 117 points. Won first Presidents' Trophy.
LOST Game 7 to Winnipeg Jets in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Peter Laviolette (fifth season, 17th NHL season).
ADDED: D Dan Hamhuis.
LOST: C Mike Fisher, F Scott Hartnell, D Alexei Emelin.
PLAYER TO WATCH: G Pekka Rinne. He turns 36 in November and is in the final year of his current contract coming off a season where he won the Vezina Trophy after being a finalist three other times. Rinne carried the Predators to their first Presidents' Trophy going 42-13-4 with eight shutouts, a 2.31 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage. He also earned his 300th career victory on Feb. 22.
OUTLOOK: The Predators' goal remains winning the Stanley Cup that has eluded them the past two seasons after a loss in the Stanley Cup Final followed by a Game 7 loss to the Winnipeg Jets in the Western Conference semifinals. They kept their core together with their biggest offseason moves signing defenseman Ryan Ellis, backup goalie Juuse Saros, forward Ryan Hartman to extensions. Nashville is expecting more growth from center Ryan Johansen, forwards Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson, Kevin Fiala and rookie Eeli Tolvanen to keep the Predators competitive in the deep Western Conference.
PREVIEW
Wild seek fast start vs. Predators

In the first four games, slow starts have hampered the Minnesota Wild. That's a problem they might want to fix ahead of Monday night's visit to the Nashville Predators.

Minnesota (1-1-2) has allowed the first goal three times in four games, including Saturday, when it lost 5-4 in overtime to Carolina. Nashville (4-1-0) has scored the first goal three times in four games, lighting the lamp three times in the last five minutes of the first period Saturday night in its 5-2 win over the New York Islanders.

The Wild were outshot by a whopping 57-23 against the Hurricanes, yet still felt they should have left the rink with two points. They led 4-3 before Justin Williams equalized at 18:51 of the third period, then lost on Sebastian Aho's marker in the extra session.

Goalie Devan Dubnyk continued his sterling early-season work for Minnesota with 52 saves, one shy of Dwayne Roloson's franchise record. But after a 4-3 overtime win Thursday night over Chicago in which they drove play, the Wild were back to reacting instead of dictating.

"It should be concerning," Minnesota forward Zack Parise said of the team's difficulty getting out of the gate. "One game is one game, but I think you're starting to see a little bit of a pattern now. So, it should be pretty alarming.

"It's almost as if we're surprised by teams that are fast. It's like we're not ready for it or whatnot. Man, they were all over us right away and we couldn't even connect a pass getting up the ice. Not very pretty."

The Predators can play the same way as Carolina, especially in Bridgestone Arena, where they often speak of getting a boost from the home crowd. That's certainly been the case in Thursday night's 3-0 win over Winnipeg and their victory over the Islanders.

They simply overwhelmed New York on both ends of the ice, outshooting them 16-4 in the first period and building a working margin that would hold up for the game's remainder, even when the Islanders cut it to 3-2 entering the third period.

"You could tell our guys were skating well, that they were on point, that they played a simple game and they were delivering pucks to the net," Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. "Then anything is possible from there."

The Predators' top line of Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson and Ryan Johansen again dominated. Forsberg potted two goals and Arvidsson added a snipe off a Johansen feed nine seconds before the first period ended.

Johansen said the team followed up a great start with a second period that needed to be cleaned up.

"We had a good response in the third to shut it down," he said. "We just wanted to get back to the things we were doing in the first period, manage the puck a little better and play good defense."

Pekka Rinne, who delivered the 52nd shutout of his career against Winnipeg, should get the start in this one for Nashville. Backup Juuse Saros earned his second win of the season against the Islanders with 20 saves.
