For most of the season, the Minnesota Wild have been one of the surprise teams in the NHL, surging to the top of the Western Conference standings.
In December, the joy has come to screeching halt. Monday's 4-2 loss to Colorado dropped Minnesota to 0-5-2 in its past seven games. The Wild are the first team since the 1999 Avalanche to follow up a seven-game winning streak by losing...
TUCSON - To say Nick Johnson has been the University of Arizonas most positive surprise of the basketball season would be an understatement.

We thought The Big Three was thing of the past, to be contemplated only to the tune of Auld Lang Syne: Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton and Dany Heatley playing on the same line. Apparently, the number three never dies. It is as big today as ever it was:
“We have to have the understanding that three is a very important number for us. Three is the be-all and end-all,” McLellan...
