Kuemper and Spurgeon help Wild earn 2-0 home victory over Arizona

Wild battle for the puck in the offensive zone.

WATCH: MacKinnon embarrasses Wild defense for goal

The legend of Nate MacKinnon continues to grow, and likely will continue to do so for some time. He was picked No. 1 overall in this past summer’s NHL draft by the Colorado Avalanche.

Did Jared Spurgeon dive on this play?

I am going to preface this post with, I am Minnesota Wild fan, but, I think there was some embellishment on this penalty.

I am a Wild fan but that looked like a great Robbie Earl impersonation there. — Eric J. Burton (@goon48) March 1, 2013
