SUNDAY'S STORY LINE: There will be a lot of game-time decisions for the Wild tonight when they take on the Calgary Flames. Matt Hackett will get the start in net, but who will back him up is still a question mark. Josh Harding, who left Thursday's game vs. Phoenix with a lower body injury, is a game time decision. Mike Yeo said the Wild have a plan if Harding can't back...
TUESDAY'S STORYLINE: "It is a little weird," said Clayton Stoner on his new-found position as one of the veteran defensemen on the Wild blue line. On Sunday, the 27 year old returned from missing 17 games with a lower body injury. In the 17 games he was gone, the Wild traded veteran defensemen Marek Zidlicky, Nick Schultz and Greg Zanon. That left Stoner, with 105 games...

MONDAY'S STORYLINE: "Everyone is a little grumpy today. I would have been a little concerned if there was a lot of 'ra ra' and happy guys out there," said Mike Yeo. "The response isn't today at practice, the response is tomorrow," added Yeo.
Tomorrow the Wild will take on the Dallas Stars and try to erase Sunday's 4-3 loss to Calgary. Yeo...
CHICAGO, March 12—The Blackhawks have “agreed to terms” with forward Daniel Carcillo on a two-year contract extension.
Carcillo, 26, is amongst one of the NHL’s roughest players and it seems like he has finally found a home after stints with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers and the Phoenix Coyotes.
He’s put down such deep roots that he has his own classic...
This is a horrible idea, it would slow down the game and make the game of hockey less exciting to watch because it would cause more whistles and stoppages.
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP)----The GMs began three days of meetings Monday. Several have said they would like to see the red line and two-line passes return in an effort to slow the game in the neutral zone, which might reduce the...
