Wild shuts out New Jersey

The Wild must have gotten confused with daylight savings. The expression is “spring forward, fall back,” but during much of the first period Sunday night, the Wild looked like it lost an hour’s sleep, not gained it. There were unforced turnovers, passes several feet off the mark, sloppy icings and four minor penalties. But at some point, whether it was induced caffeine or...
