ST. LOUIS The revolving door that was the Wilds third pairing on defense has finally stopped spinning.
After regular rotation last season and throughout coach Bruce Boudreaus tenure the team has solidified a top six that it has relied on every game in 2018-19, stability that has emerged as a strength of the Wilds through the first month of the schedule.
The Wild played with a lead, tied and from behind.
It received power-play chances and had to defend a man short.
And the team also got to experience a win in its final run-through before a younger version closes out the preseason schedule Friday, as the Wild rallied 4-3 over the Jets Wednesday at Xcel Energy Center improving to 2-4 in exhibition play.
Isolate the season from those that came before it, and the Wilds performance the past six months is encouraging if not admirable.
It chipped away at an early hole to climb into one of the Central Divisions top three spots and ended up as one of the most productive teams in the Western Conference.
