Covers Preview - The Minnesota Wild have been one of the hottest teams in the league over the past 1 1/2 months despite boasting a truly anemic power play. That unit will be put to the test Friday as the Wild put their four-game winning streak on the line against the host Carolina Hurricanes. The Wild improved to 17-4-1 in their last 22 games with a 2-1 comeback victory over Washington on Thursday despite owning the league's third-worst power-play unit.
