Bouchard continues way back with key goal

ST. PAUL, Minn. Minnesota Wild coach Mike Yeo had seen his top line of Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu and Dany Heatley score 10 of the team's 13 goals through the first five games and pleaded for more support after Minnesota lost in overtime at St. Louis on Sunday. Returning home, the Wild got the secondary scoring it needed and everyone could appreciate who supplied the help. Pierre...

Wild's top line pacing early season success

ST. PAUL, Minn. Ever since star forward Zach Parise signed his mega-contract last summer with the Minnesota Wild, coach Mike Yeo had dreamed of putting Parise with center Mikko Koivu and wing Dany Heatley. Yeo felt the three could complement each other well and become the top scoring line Minnesota has sought for years, while also being responsible defensively. Yeo had time to change...

Wild look to halt three-game losing skid

Zach Parise and the rest of the Minnesota Wild's top line are living up to lofty expectations. Collectively, the Wild are falling well short. Parise looks to continue his offensive barrage and help Minnesota halt a three-game slide in a matchup with the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night. Parise was born in Minneapolis and is the son of J.P. Parise, a former captain with...

Wild 3, Blue Jackets 2

Pierre-Marc Bouchard scored the go-ahead goal late in the third period and the Minnesota Wild snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 on Tuesday night. With the Wild seemingly on their heels after giving up a two-goal lead, Bouchard took a pass from Torrey Mitchell near the blue line, zoomed past two Columbus defenders and beat goalie Steve Mason...

Josh Harding benched, takes his frustration out on a wall

Josh Harding's story has been pretty miraculous. The goaltender recently picked up a shutout for the Minnesota Wild in his first game back after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Unfortunately, Harding's start against the Chicago Blackhawks was a bumpy one, earning Harding some time on the bench not even seven minutes into the first period. As Niklas Backstrom took...

Blackhawks excitement rising in Chicago as team gets off to fast start

by Dan Grrob, TiqIQ Just two weeks into the 2013 NHL season, the Chicago Blackhawks can stake a serious claim as the team to beat across the league.

Wild pass early test in victory over Blackhawks

ST. PAUL, Minn. When the Minnesota Wild went on their summer shopping spree to land big-name free agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, fans of the team envisioned long playoff runs, Stanley Cups and parades down the streets of St. Paul. All of the hype surrounding Parise and Suter overshadowed one important fact. The first step for Minnesota is getting back into the playoffs, after...

Blackhawks trade Peter LeBlanc to Capitals for future considerations

The Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday traded forward Peter LeBlanc to the Washington Capitals in exhange for future considerations.

Bouchard's tiebreaking goal propels Wild over Blue Jackets

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild's top line has been as dominant as any in the NHL early in this shortened season, but the team has lacked secondary offense. That is, until Pierre-Marc Bouchard somehow ended up on the fourth line. Playing on a juggled offensive unit, Bouchard scored his 100th career goal late in the third period Tuesday, and it lifted the Wild to a 3-2...

Wild win in a Shootout 3-2

The WCHA was well represented tonight. Here is the video of the shootout. Shooting is former Fighting Sioux forwards Zach Parise and Jonathan Toews. Also, Mikko Koivu, Patrick. Kane, former Saint Cloud State Husky Matt Cullen and Patrick Sharp shootout attempts. Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews has a 50 percent success rate in the shootouts. That's incredible in my opinion.

Wild-Ducks Preview

After a three-game losing streak negated their quick start to the season, a pair of victories have the Minnesota Wild feeling good again. A third straight win Friday night against Anaheim would further boost their confidence, as they'll be facing a Ducks team that's coming off a shootout loss but off to a good start to 2013. The Wild (4-2-1) couldn't maintain their...
