More first-round heartbreak for Wild, compromised defensively in Game 7 by early loss of Jonas Brodin

LAS VEGAS — We’ll never know, but one does have to wonder how different Friday night’s Game 7 showdown between the Wild and Vegas Golden Knights would have been had Jonas Brodin not gotten hurt less than six minutes into the game.

Maybe the Wild’s plane Saturday morning would be directed to Denver rather than the Twin Cities for another long offseason.

If you ever doubted Brodin’s value to the Wild, just review the video of Minnesota’s season-ending 6-2 loss to see how the game unfolded after Kirill Kaprizov tied the score early in the second period.
