Wild Thursday: Emotions kept in check

THURSDAY'S STORY LINE: Minnesota's last two games have offered up a range of emotions. Saturday, the team took a disappointing 3-1 loss in Calgary. The Wild and Flames went into the third period tied, 1-1. Calgary's Matt Stajan scored the game-winner at 7:19 of the third period and added an empty-netter with 8 seconds left. Tuesday provided another emotional game against...

Wild seek to gain momentum versus Coyotes

Minnesota Wild coach Mike Yeo has been trying to tame expectations for his club, which is a tall order given the nearly 200 million dollars committed to signing Zach Parise and Ryan Suter in the offseason. Despite having some trouble scoring, though, Minnesota has been on a bit of a roll lately. The Wild seek a fourth victory in their last five tries Thursday night as they visit...
PREPARE FOR SUSPENSION

Matt Stajan drilled up high by Charlie Coyle

Minnesota Wild rookie forward Charlie Coyle received a five-minute major for elbowing after hitting Calgary Flames center Matt Stajan in the head during the second period of Tuesday night's game at the Xcel Energy Center. Stajan was dumping the puck out of the Flames zone when he was checked by Coyle. Interestingly enough, it was Coyle's shoulder that made contact with...

Did Jared Spurgeon dive on this play?

I am going to preface this post with, I am Minnesota Wild fan, but, I think there was some embellishment on this penalty. Steve Sullivan was given a two minute minor for tripping but it looks like Jared Spurgeon was a little light on his skates. I am a Wild fan but that looked like a great Robbie Earl impersonation there. — Eric J. Burton (@goon48) March 1, 2013

Frustrations melt away with overtime win

ST. PAUL, Minn. Mike Yeo walked into the postgame press conference about 45 minutes after his Minnesota Wild beat Calgary, 2-1, in overtime on Tuesday night looking solemn and straight-faced. Yeo didn't look at reporters immediately upon entering the room. The emotion in the second-year coach couldn't be seen but was later felt in his words and actions. The cool-down period...
GETTIN' WILD ON BIZNASTY

Michael Rupp rocks Paul Bissonnette's world

The big news from Michael Rupp vs Paul Bissonnette: BizNasty left last night’s brawl with a stream of blood over his left eye after getting rocked by Rupp. You had to figure, after BizNasty went on a three-game scoring streak, he’d be a little rusty in the fighting department. After his suddenly hot play, the Coyotes actually gave Biz 12 shifts last night against Minnesota....

Wild 4, Coyotes 3

Heatley's pair of goals gives Wild the edge as they hold on for a 4-3 road win over Phoenix

How much longer will NHL hockey be in the Arizona desert?  After selling out opening night the Phoenix Coyotes played before a crowd of less than 9,000 people.  In a butts in the seats league, that's a huge problem.  The Phoenix Coyotes have one of the league's newest arenas that is on par with just about anyone in the league; including the Minnesota Wild.  Yet people...

Late push by Wild falls short in Anaheim

In 1812, brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their first volume of children's tales that we now call Grimm's Fairy Tales.  There has been debate over the years as to whether they were really intended for children at all, and over the years, they have been edited, and later adapted by Disney to become what many of us know them to be.  Depending on which version of...
