Avalanche Vs. Wild Score Update: Game Is Still Scoreless After Two Periods

We're two periods through Thursday night's game between the Colorado Avalanche and the Minnesota Wild, but the fans at Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul still haven't been treated to a goal yet. The Avalanche are in desperate need of a victory, as they've lost eight of their past ten games.

The Avalanche were able to hold a significant shots-on-goal advantage in the second period, out-shooting the Wild 13-5, but they were unable to get the puck past Minnesota goalie Niklas Backstrom. Backstrom is now 19-for-19 on saves so far as he eyes his second shutout of the season.

Minnesota mustered only five shots against Colorado in the second period, with Avalanche goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere getting his hands on all five. He's a perfect 13-for-13 on saves and is looking for the first shutout of his season.
