Wild's Ryan Suter: Shows off passing skills in Tuesday's win

Suter chipped in two helpers Tuesday, pacing the Wild to a 6-3 win over the visiting Kings.

As the old adage goes, "There's two things certain in life: death and taxes." But if we could add a third, it would include the guarantee that the Wild speak about the need to carefully manage Suter's playing time to keep him fresh for the long haul. Yes, it's early, but it appears coach Bruce Boudreau has received the memo given how the 31-year-old is averaging 25:35 of ice time through the first three games. The Wisconsin native finished last campaign with an average of 28:36.
