Some anxious moments for the Wild in the first period of tonight’s game in Winnipeg.

All-Star defenseman Ryan Suter was visibly shaken up and briefly left the ice after getting crunched into the end boards by Jets blueline Paul Postma:

Postma was given a five-minute boarding major on the play, but wasn’t ejected.

Suter was able to return to action (and was met with a chorus of boos from Jets fans), but appeared to be in discomfort. It appears as though he may have hurt his left leg.

With Postma in the box, Erik Haula scored his 13th goal of the year to give the Wild a 3-1 lead heading into the first intermission. No word yet if Suter would continue — on that note, it’s worth pointing out Minnesota came into this game undermanned, as both Zach Parise and Jason Pominville are sidelined with the mumps.
