Clutterbuck, Wild can taste playoffs now

ST. PAUL, Minn. Cal Clutterbuck has played 344 games in his six-year career for the Minnesota Wild, one of the last remaining players from the 2007-08 team that advanced to the playoffs.

The Wild recalled forwards Jake Dowell and Stephane Veilleux from their AHL affiliate in Houston on Monday and reassigned young forwards Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker to the farm club.

Wild might not need another win to make it to playoffs

ST. PAUL, Minn. The Minnesota Wild took care of their end of the deal Tuesday night by beating the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings in a hard-fought game. Now, the Western Conference could help Minnesota secure its first playoff berth in five years before the Wild even play again. Minnesota, after Tuesday's 2-1 win, holds the seventh spot in the West with 53...

Niklas Backstrom uses his inner thigh to make game-saving save

With time winding down in the third period, the Minnesota Wild held a narrow 2-1 lead over the Los Angeles Kings.  Kings defenseman Slava Voynov had a chance with 14 seconds left and Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom made a diving save to keep the lead.  Backstrom actually missed the puck with his glove and his flailing leg hit the puck at the last second.  It was a huge win for the...

Dustin Brown throws vicious elbow at Jason Pominville’s face

About midway through the second period, the Los Angeles Kings were down 2-0 when Dustin Brown threw a vicious elbow at Jason Pominville’s face.  The puck came to Brown on the half-wall, and rather than wait for Pominville to make contact with him, Brown lunged at Pominville and delivered an elbow right to his face.  A penalty wasn’t called on the play, but something tells me...

Two goals, 16 seconds apart is enough to give the Wild a huge 2-1 win over Los Angeles

I was watching TV in between hockey games this weekend and I came across the disaster film 2012.  The film gives you the unbelieveable tale of the Mayan Prophecy coming true and the Earth hits its own 'reset' button as a combination of Earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunami devastate the planet.  Luckily, the great (wealthy) nations of the world had planned for this disaster...

Kings-Wild Preview

The Minnesota Wild concluded a stellar second half of March with a victory over the Los Angeles Kings, and it seemed inevitable they would be heading to their first postseason in five years. Then came struggles in April and a home losing streak that could become the worst in franchise history Tuesday night, leaving Minnesota's playoff fate in limbo as it meets a Kings team fighting...

I am not a Dustin Brown hater by any stretch of the imagination, he's a good American players, but when you make a mistake you own up to and you move on. These comments that he made about his elbow on Jason Pominville are laughable, if not insulting. Helene Elliott and Lisa Dillman, Los Angeles Times – Obviously we were disappointed in the decision, quite honest,"...

Have I Mentioned That the Kings Suck on the Road? by   Jack Weber

Darryl Sutter was forced to change the Kings lineup out of necessity today, as captain and left wing on the first line, Dustin Brown, was suspended for the remaining two games of the regular season following an elbow to the head of Jason Pominville yesterday. Pominville left the game and didn’t return with what is [...]

Dustin Brown at the center of two controversial hits

Dustin Brown's reputation in the NHL is starting to get pretty ugly. If you're unfamiliar with Brown as a player, he plays the game with an intensity and a ferocity that's difficult to match. This style appears to get the better of him, causing him to throw controversial hits on a somewhat regular basis. In a span of just three days, Brown placed himself at the center...

Kings Brown suspended 2 games for hit on Jason Pominville

@bush1124 The NHL has no choice, they have to suspend him for this hit. — Eric J. Burton (@goon48) April 24, 2013 First off, I was right, the NHL had no choice, they had to suspend Dustin Brown for his hit on Jason Pominville. In my opinion, the hit was a text book violation of the NHL's Rule 48. Obviously, we can debate that if you want. Also, this suspension doesn&...
