Found November 19, 2013 on Diehardsport:

Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding showed off his flexibility when he reached across to rob Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty.  Harding literally pulled this puck off the goal line to keep it from going in.  Unfortunately for Harding, he had a brutal second period and was pulled after allowing three goals in just over ten minutes…all of which were by Max Pacioretty.  Looks like Pacioretty got the last laugh.

Pacioretty’s return means Habs have game again

Max Pacioretty's natural hat trick on Tuesday was a big moment for the 2013-14 Montreal Canadiens. Why? Pacioretty had been in a deep sleep much of the season, as has his linemate David Desharnais.

Pacioretty's natural hat trick pacifies red hot Wild in 6-2 road loss

They say home is where the heart is, and that certainly has boded well for the Minnesota Wild who have been one of the best NHL teams in their home barn as they boast a 10-1-2 record 21 games into the 2013-14 season.  On the road has been a different story, as the Wild are a far more mundane 3-3-2 and now are about to be tested in a major way in a 4-game road trip that will again...

Josh Harding named NHL's Third Star of Week; Darcy Kuemper recalled

As speculated in today's paper, the Wild did indeed flip backup goalies this morning. With Niklas Backstrom sidelined with a concussion, Johan Gustafsson was reassigned to AHL Iowa and Darcy Kuemper recalled for the two-game road trip to Montreal and Ottawa (actually a four-game trip, but the Wild's returning home Thursday before heading to Winnipeg on Friday for practice...

Koivu's two goals carry Wild past Winnipeg

The Wild might be the best home team in the NHL, but it sure felt like a road game Sunday night.
