With Game 1 of the FULL 2013-2014 season under their belts, the Minnesota Wild move on to face off against the Anaheim Ducks in Game 2. Before looking ahead tonight, letâs take a "Quick" look back at Game 1.
The pre-game video was quite good with the theme focusing on the Wild being in a new division, but heating up old rivalries from the days of the North Stars (mock falling snow included)....

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Mathew Dumba was in the NHL for the second straight season, but similar to last season, he was left to be a spectator in the Minnesota Wild's regular-season opener.
Coach Mike Yeo could sense the nerves Dumba, Minnesota's 19-year-old defenseman, was playing with, even in practice. So instead of letting Dumba play in the season-opener on Thursday, Dumba...
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Charlie Coyle's lower-body injury will keep him out much longer than just Tuesday's game at Nashville.
The Minnesota Wild announced Sunday night that Coyle suffered a sprained knee in Saturday night's 4-3 loss in overtime to the Anaheim Ducks and is expected to miss three to four weeks. Forward Jason Zucker was recalled from the Iowa Wild to fill Coyle...
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Matt Cooke really couldn't have imagined his start in a Minnesota Wild sweater to go quite like his first shift in Thursday's regular-season opener.
Cooke, known for his agitating play and not his goal-scoring prowess, scored 64 seconds into the game. He wasn't sure if the goal would be counted, as his forward momentum appeared to have him kicking...
Minnesota Wild center Charlie Coyle will miss three to four weeks with a sprained knee.
The Wild announced the timetable for Coyle's recovery on Sunday night. The second-year player was hurt Saturday night in the team's overtime loss to Anaheim.
Left wing Jason Zucker was recalled from Iowa of the AHL to take Coyle's place. Zucker played in 20 games last season. Both...
I am actually surprised that Matt Cookes' shot off of the foot counted as a goal.
At 1:04 of the first period in the Kings/Wild game, video review confirmed the referee's call on the ice that Kyle Brodziak's shot deflected off Matt Cooke's skate and into the net in a legal fashion. The determining factor was that the speed of the puck propelled it into the net...
Minnesota Wild forward Charlie Coyle left Saturday's game against the Anaheim Ducks with a lower-body injury. He has been ruled out for the remainder of the game.
Coyle appeared to injure himself in a collision with Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano midway through the second period.
I will be the first to admit that my own selfish wants and needs for Mathew Dumba to be in the NHL this season have created sky high expectations for this 19 year old kid tonight and beyond. The unadulterated truth is if the Wild unleash this kid on the NHL this year, every night he will create highlight reel plays and have Wild fans in the Excel Energy Center on the edge of their...
Minnesota Wild prospect Matt Dumba is primed to make his NHL debut against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
The 19-year-old was selected seventh overall in the 2012 NHL Draft. His parents will be on hand.
All warm and fuzzy feelings aside the defenseman wants to carry over an impressive preseason into high-level action for the Wild...
When Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick looked up after surrendering his second goal of the first period Thursday night Jonas Brodin was huddled with Wild teammates celebrating his power-play goal.
To Brodin's right was Jared Spurgeon to his left Charlie Coyle and between them were Nino Niederreiter and Mikael Granlund. That's a unit of three 21-year-olds with 20...
The season opener started with such great expectations, with young players now going to be playing primetime roles on the team. Better yet, the young players showed lots of promise and better still the Wild seemed to be embracing a puck possession style that involved less turnovers and more time controlling the play in the opposition's zone. The team played with hustle, confidence...
