ST. PAUL, Minn. Looking back now, Ryan Suter can see all the reasons why his first month with the Minnesota Wild wasn't what he was expecting. Changing teams, systems, coaches, defensive partners; they're all the same reasons Suter didn't want to use earlier in the season as excuses when he was a minus-7 with four points in the first nine games.
Suter, off of that 13...
ST. PAUL, Minn. With Niklas Backstrom starting 10 straight games, the Minnesota Wild switched backup goaltenders Sunday just to get work for their promising rookies.
Minnesota assigned goaltender Matt Hackett and forward Jason Zucker to the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League and recalled goaltender Darcy Kuemper and forward Jake Dowell. Hackett, 23, and Kuemper, 22, have...
MONDAY'S STORYLINES: Mike Rupp, who has missed the last 3 games with a lower body injury, will be back in the lineup and on the fourth line with Torrey Mitchell and Zenon Konopka. The Wild had recalled Jake Dowell yesterday, who has 7 points and 29 penalty minutes in 26 games with Houston this season, with intention of playing him on the fourth line if Rupp could not go tonight...
Zach Parise scored two goals and added an assist and the Minnesota Wild extended their winning streak to six games with a 7-4 win over Dallas Stars on Monday.
Both of Parise's goals came on bounces that barely made it over the goal line. Mikko Koivu and Matt Cullen each had a goal and assist for Minnesota, which won for the first time in Dallas since March 21, 2003, snapping...
DALLAS (AP) -- Zach Parise scored two goals and added an assist and the Minnesota Wild extended their winning streak to six games with a 7-4 win over Dallas Stars on Monday.
Both of Parise's goals came on bounces that barely made it over the goal line. Mikko Koivu and Matt Cullen each had a goal and assist for Minnesota, which won for the first time in Dallas since March 21...
Zach Parise scored twice and added an assist as the Minnesota Wild scored a season-best seven goals as they defeated Dallas 7-4. Mikko Koivu, Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Kyle Brodziak each had a goal and an assist in the win.
SPIN: Lost in all the offense is that Minnesota goaltender Niklas Backstrom is 14-3-1 in his last 18 starts. Jaromir Jagr scored for Dallas while Alex Goligoski...
Time to get down to business and unveil the first ever Top 3 Stars in the NHL according to stats, fans and the play from this past week’s games! It’s Puckin’ Hockey is proud to announce our stars:
3rd Star: Minnesota Wild’s Goaltender, Niklas Backstrom
Backstrom has been a top performer in Minnesota and this past week he posted a 3-0-0 record, 1.00 Goals Against Average...
Before I say anything else, I would like to send my condolences to the family of actor Larry Hagman after losing his fight with cancer earlier this year. Hagman would have fit in with most hockey players as he was a free spirit who loved a good practical joke. It is with the memories of Hagman the fun-loving person that I write the rest of this introduction. Larry Hagman'...
The Minnesota Wild are playing their best hockey of the season, but coach Mike Yeo isn't getting too excited.
That's probably a good idea with a game in Dallas on tap.
The Wild will try to extend their winning streak to six on Monday night when they go for their first victory at the Stars in 17 tries.
Winners of 12 of 16, the Wild (18-10-2) have put themselves in a good...
