Minnesota Wild: Ilya Bryzgalov is the playoff goalie

Just three weeks ago, I was exclaiming that Darcy Kuemper has to be the guy moving forward. The most recent piece I posted claimed that if Josh Harding is healthy he deserves the nod in the playoffs. Today, I’m going to say something that just over a...

WATCH: Wild goalie makes fan's night by giving her stick
