Wild Point At Fernandez

from the Pioneer Press,
Every time the subject came up after Thursday's practice, Wild goalie Manny Fernandez was part of the discussion. Players and coaches pointed to Fernandez as the No. 1 reason the Wild lead the NHL in penalty killing, even though an improved defense has been just as crucial during the team's 8-1 start. "Our defense has been great back there, but it's also been a lot of goaltending," said Brian Rolston, the team's leading scorer. "And our guy is one of the best in the league."
