Continued: Wild out to end another streak in Dallas

The Wild seems to be gaining confidence with each passing victory, which has been best demonstrated by its starts. The Wild has scored first in nine of the past 10 games.

“Before, when you’re a team that’s not having a lot of success, you go into games with a bit of a question mark rather than just going out and trying to be the aggressor because you really trust and believe what you’re doing,” Brodziak said. “Our confidence level is up, and at the start of games we come out and we have a lot of energy and we’re trying to be the team that initiates rather than sits there and waits and dips our toe in the water.

“Starts are crucial. You have a good start, every line gets into the game and every player gets involved and it carries throughout the rest of the game.”

If the Wild can pull this off in Dallas, it might prove the Wild’s got something good going here.

“That’s true,” Brodziak said, laughing. “You know what, though, we’re a different team right now. We feel good about what’s going on here now. Now we just have to keep it going.”

Notes

• With rookie Jason Zucker relegated to the fourth line and Bouchard having retaken his second-line spot, Zucker was reassigned Sunday. Jake Dowell, better suited for a fourth-line role, was recalled. Mike Rupp, who has missed three games because of a lower-body injury, practiced and traveled to Dallas.

• The Wild also flipped backup goalies, recalling Darcy Kuemper and sending down Matt Hackett.
