Eriksson’s hat trick foils Wild, who may have lost Zucker to injury


Your nightly understatement: Thursday’s been rough for the Minnesota Wild.

Most directly, they lost a 4-2 decision against the Boston Bruins, with Lou Eriksson notching a hat trick against them.

(Video of Eriksson’s trio of goals will be added to this post upon availability.)

Maybe more concerning, rising star Jason Zucker might be hurt.

Here’s video of a slash that may have done some serious damage:

The Wild are already a little banged up, so they have to hope that this looked worse than it will end up being.

Nothing official yet, though.
