    8 sog last night. Circumstance or a preview of things to come? I love the play making and had no idea he was such a talented passer but I kinda like the idea of him shooting more.

    All of the above.

    AZ is nothing but a speed bump for a player like him.

    First time in years where I’m excited to be a Wild fan again, he may save the franchise after all.

    Currently having a 17% shot, so I would also be asking for more shots, those are hot hands.

    Considering his career shooting percentage in the KHL was 15.7% I would say it's not so much about the hot hand, it's just the way he plays. And considering his shot was regarded as a weakness for a large part of his career it's natural it shaped him into the player he is, I doubt it will change drastically. Not someone who's going to put up 300 shots per season.

    Could be close this much closer to a ppg if he and Zuccarello aren’t so unselfish

    Zuccarello trying to keep Kaprizov's AAV down, or?

    He obviously wanted to let Kaprizov have the goal, tells you something about Zucc, and stuff like this will just strengthen their chemistry even more.

    Yeah it was poor decision making by Zuccarello. He needs to be better going forward.

    Zuccarello really does seem like a good guy though

    One moment of poor decision making, but otherwise showing passing skills in this game. Was a "Zucc wants too much to give his linemate the goal - moment". Not the first time, but hopefully the last.

    Nonsense, if Zucc wanted that goal for himself he'd put it in the net. It was a thing between those two, they didn't hurt the team. Give it a rest.

    What’s nonsense? That he wanted to give Kaprizov that goal?

    Zuccarello is a great mentor and linemate for Kirill. After he's getting jabbed at the net by Larsson and he starts getting frustrated? Zucc comes over and says something that makes kap laugh.

    Pass first. Loose. Great teammate. I ate crow on how much I wanted him gone before the season.

    The Minnesota Wild are sooo boring.

    Lol had quite a few drinks last night with my dad. I ordered a Kaprisov shirt jersey and he got a Zuccarello. =)

    The fact he make it with the anchor that is Rask (no offense Minny fans), just goes to show just how awesome he is. Big fan of Kap, hes so entertaining.

    I can't think of anything less offensive to Minnesota fans.

    The Lizard nickname for Zuccarello makes me chuckle every time. It's absolutely stupid, but hilariously so. I mean, I get what Fenton was going for, but jesus...just a weird way to explain it. Anyone know if he [Zucc] actually knows about it?

    This Dollar, Dollar Bill Kirill s*** needs to go away die a horrible death though. Sounds like a 12 year old made it up. How that caught traction, I don't get.

    It was a teammate creation and they made shirts.

    At least it's unique, instead of that 'Kirill the Thrill" bullshit.
