Continued: Souhan: Where is Koivu when Wild needs him?

It’s a tough assignment, going up against Toews and the Blackhawks, but captains are supposed to relish these challenges. Koivu has been largely absent.

Although he wasn’t directly culpable, Koivu was also on the ice for the Blackhawks’ last goal, the one that made it 4-1 late in the third period.

At the point of the game when the Wild should have been pulling the goalie and mounting a desperate comeback, it was killing off Koivu’s last penalty.

Maybe Koivu is hurt.

Maybe that’s the best Wild fans can hope for.
