ST. PAUL, Minn. -- One day after goalie Josh Harding suffered an injury, the Minnesota Wild recalled Johan Gustafsson from the Iowa Wild of the AHL as insurance in net.
Harding exited Thursdays 3-1 win over Carolina after two periods with what was classified only as a lower body injury. Harding appeared to suffer the injury with about six minutes remaining in the second period but...

The stalls in the visiting locker room at United Center were the same, and many of the Wild players occupying them reverted to their old spots.
Mikko Koivu was in the same stall. So were Zach Parise and Ryan Suter.
But in the building where the Wild's postseason came to a swift end less than six months ago, a different Wild team playing a different system delivered a decisive...

''I think I just play every game the same,'' Backstrom...

MNWild: Show and Prove Wild Vs BlackHawks Gameday
There is no masking how big tonightâs game is for the entire Wild organization. So much of what has been addressed and changed stems from how the Wildâs season ended last year at the hands of the eventual NHL Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. The Blackhawks arguably provided the blueprint for rebuilding an NHL...

The Hurricanes 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild was filled with some positives and a lot of negatives. On the plus side, they outshot a Minnesota team that has made a habit out of dominating their opponents at even strength. That stat becomes slightly less impressive when you take into account that the Hurricanes were playing from behind for 3/4 of the game while Minnesota sat back...
