Kirill Kaprizov might have trouble topping his NHL debut when the visiting Minnesota Wild meet the Los Angeles Kings again on Saturday night.
The 23-year-old Russian was the star of Minnesota's 4-3 overtime win against the Kings in the season opener on Thursday. He became the first rookie to produce at least three points and score an overtime goal in his first NHL game.
"It was great the way it all happened, but at the end of the day I'm just focusing on the next game," he said through an interpreter. "Make sure this continues through the season."
