Rain-pner? Just doesn’t have the same ring like sno-pener does. One could figure most fans would much rather have it a few degrees cooler and snowy than be pelted with rain, sleet and hail for a few hours. Nashville SC rained on the Loons’ home opener parade when they scored early on. The Coyotes retained the lead through halftime but a another break would come shortly into the second half. Lightning strikes put the game on hold for 70 minutes but Dotson’s goal after the restart salvaged a point for Minnesota United.

Next up for Minnesota is a trip out east to take on New York Red Bulls on Sunday night.
