Found November 10, 2011 on Nightmare on Helm Street:
When Bertuzzi missed one game with the “flu” I believed it.  But when it was two in a row, I started to get suspicious.  Turns out I might have been right: Bertuzzi hasn't been the same since being hit in the face by Devin Setoguchi's stick in the Oct. 29 game at Minnesota. He played the next two games, but it kept getting worse, so he has sat out the past two. "Dizzy and lightheaded, just got a little swelling in my ears, got to get my balance back,'' Bertuzzi said. "I just didn't feel myself. I got a sinus infection, got my ears checked, got a little swelling in there.'' Click the jump for more on 'Tuzzi. So if he’s got a sinus infection, then why did they mention that he wasn’t feeling that well after getting hit with a stick? To me that sounds like they are trying to imply he had a concussion?  Strange. Anyways, he’ll miss the next two games as he tries to get over this dizzy spell.   And for those two games, we’ll have a few le...

North Stars Take On The Wild

from Michael Rand of RandBall at the Star Tribune, (Proprietor disclaimer: Again, this is very, very fake. Just so we’re clear). The battle for the hearts and minds of Minnesota pro hockey fans came to an indeterminate conclusion with the current franchise declaring victory while the former franchise was left wondering why the new team decided to run a practice after the game...

The green coats are coming!

The Minnesota Wild are here.  It seems strange for that to be an alarming thing, but surprise, surprise they’ve won 5 in a row.  Their penalty kill and their goalies are vying for bestest ever in the universe.  Yes, the sky could fall. That pk has been perfect for at least 5 games in a row, 21 or 23 successful penalty kills or something.  But against who?  Eeek!  The Red...

Cam Gore: Sharks down the Kings and prep for the Wild

The Sharks must be feeling a load off their backs after they beat the Kings Tuesday night and didn’t squander away the two goal lead. Things don’t get any easier for them when the Wild come to town Thursday night. This will be the return of former Sharks Devin Setoguchi and Dany Heatley who were dealt to the Wild this summer. These players were part of the NHL’s...

Nick Johnson vs Jarome Iginla

I was watching this game last night and Wild forward Nick Johnson is thrown out of the game for an alleged head butt. I have watched this video numerous times and I for the life of me don't see the head butt that Iginla is complaining about. I have to agree with BReynolds that there is no head butt. Also, the ref that made the call Tim Kowal should probably apologize to...

Wild fall short in San Jose

They say possession is 9/10ths of the law, and in NHL rules terms you can say an official's call is nearly 9/10th's provable guilt.  When officials make a call, its almost a given that half of the fans watching will love the call and about the same number will hate it.  They may gain some cheers for the calls benefiting the home team, but those fans can become instantly...

Interview: YouTube Hockey Names Guy tells (almost) all

Guillaume Latendresse of the Minnesota Wild has, shall we say, a challenge name to pronounce for the layman. The NHL's official pronunciation guide tells us it's GEE-OHM lah-TEHN-drehs. YouTube sensation 'Runforthecube' disagrees, offering up an alternative on one of his 1,000 NHL player name videos: gully-OHM lah-TEEN-dress-aye. Eh, close enough. The videos produced...

Sharks stop Wild's win streak at 5

Torrey Mitchell and Devin Setoguchi went out to dinner together one night before facing off against each other. Once they hit the ice, it was all business for the two former teammates. Patrick Marleau scored two power-play goals in the second period, and the San Jose Sharks snapped Minnesota's five-game winning streak with a 3-1 victory over the Wild on Thursday night.
