One of the Bruins few returners from last season, Jones suffered an ankle injury just two games into the season, having to sit out three straight contests.

"Just knowing that I’m a big part of the team, it hurts me a little and I’ve been wanting to get out there a lot," he said.

Adversity is something Jones knows about responding to all too well.

When Kolby was just nine years old, his family gave him devastating news. His father, Earl, had been diagnosed with cancer and he was nearing the final stages of his life.

"He had a wonderful laugh. He was a coach too," Kolby remembered. "Watching him coach, it inspired me to play, seeing his guys go out there and get it."

    It turns out constantly playing from behind is, in fact, not a recipe for success in the NHL. Even if the Wild proved otherwise time and again on their way to a thrilling 4-0-0 start.

    On this particular night, though, the Wild let the Nashville Predators jump out to an early lead and never recovered in a humbling 5-2 loss.

    “Our energy has been real good up to this point,” coach Dean Evason said. “For whatever reason, we had nothing here tonight. To put a finger on it, I don’t know. We should have had more than we had tonight.”
