Quick blog as I just checked into my Denver hotel and need to hustle to the arena, but the Iowa shuttle is being called upon again.
Like a yo-yo, Jason Zucker has been reassigned and Erik Haula is back. The Wild is gathering in less than an hour at the Pepsi Center before an optional practice at DU, but my guess now is Charlie Coyle finally moves back to first-line right wing and...
Minnesota Wild center Charlie Coyle may not have thought much about giving a little wave in the front row to a young boy during warmups before a recent game. However, the boy's priceless reaction proves that even the smallest gestures of kindness can mean a lot.Video via NHL.

Mikko Koivu scored the winner in the shootout and Josh Harding made two glove saves, helping the Minnesota Wild rally for a 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.
Koivu beat Semyon Varlamov with a shot just under the crossbar. Zach Parise also scored for the Wild in the shootout.

Josh Harding was brilliant in regulation and only got better from there, showing why he's one of the league's top goaltenders.
Harding made two glove saves in the shootout and Mikko Koivu scored the deciding goal as the Minnesota Wild rallied for a 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.
''If Harding isn't as good as he is, we score a few more...
Watch how happy this young Minnesota Wild fan gets when Charlie Coyle waves to him. It’s ridiculous. Why can’t all sports events be as simple and heartwarming as this, instead of, oh I don’t know, four people being stabbed in the parking lot at Mile High Stadium last night? Why can’t the fans that we talk about on Monday morning be more like this thrilled child than the drunk...
After the Wild's most recent game in San Jose, where the Wild lost 3-1 to a Sharks team that had lost its last 4 games the team held the ever ominous "closed door meeting." We'll never know what is said, as what is said in the room, stays in the room but we certainly can guess. Players calling others out for not giving it their best, or perhaps not playing with...
This is a bad call, actually it's pathetic, as Wild tough guy Zenon Konopka was given a double minor for high sticking. You can see by the GIF that Konokpa never touched Jason Demers. The Sharks scored on the power play. You can bet that the Wild GM might be giving the NHL front office a call tomorrow. s/t CJZERO @blldgshockey11 Nope, not at all— CJ Fogler (@cjzero) December 13, 2013
from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,
The Wild paraded to the penalty box and the Sharks capitalized with three power-play goals on seven chances to send the Wild off into the chilly North California night reeling after a 3-1 loss at the Shark Tank.
“It must be nice to draw penalties like that,” coach Mike Yeo said, sarcastically, “when the other team goes stick...
The Ducks did it again - another win at home, this time a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild. Anaheim remains unbeaten in regulation with a 12-0-2 record, a franchise best.
The Wild did not make it easy and goaltender, Josh Harding, lived up to his stingy billing. Harding leads the NHL with a 1.52 goals against average. Letting in two was more than most teams get.
Games between the Anaheim Ducks and the Minnesota Wild are always close, and this one right from the bat appeared as though it wasn't going to be any different. Both teams were denying quality scoring chances through some tough pressure and solid defense.
Even though Minnesota managed to register the first four shots on goal of the game, they weren't getting any quality...
