Kahkonen stopped 44 of 46 shots in a 4-2 win over Florida on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old has been sensational in his first two starts at the NHL level. Kahkonen's latest performance saw him beaten twice in the opening period before he closed the door for the final 40 minutes, allowing the Wild to score four unanswered to come away with a win on the road. While many expect Alex Stalock to get the start against Tampa Bay on Thursday, Kahkonen's fine form could see him rewarded with more starts down the road, especially as long as Devan Dubnyk (personal) is away from the team.
