Point Shot: Wild’s great defense against Sharks’ amazing offense

The Wild and Sharks square off tonight in a Western Conference battle between a top defensive team and a top offensive team.
Ryan Suter leads the Wild on the back-end, logging the third-most ice-time in the league. Suter helps backstop one of the stingiest team defenses in the league, with the Wild ranking 7th in goals against per game.
For the Sharks, they’re led by two of the best offensive defensemen in the league in Erik Karlsson and Brent Burns. Both love throwing pucks at the net and the perfect compliment to them is Evander Kane who’s always battling in the paint, ranking third in inner slot shots.
This head-to-head battle will be determined in the Wild’s d-zone where one of the best offenses will try and find ways to take down one of the best defenses.
