Wild's Curry makes 19 saves in surprise start after recall

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- While the Minnesota Wild made a second-half run last season and then advanced to the second round of the Western Conference playoffs, the goaltending situation became an interesting subplot. No matter if it was Josh Harding, Darcy Kuemper, Niklas Backstrom, Ilya Brzygalov or even John Curry, Minnesota overcame an unstable position to post one of the league's lowest...

Curry and Wild stand tall in 4-2 win over Blues

Kyle Brodziak dangles the puck around a sprawling T.J. Oshie.   I will admit, I am barely invested in tonight’s Wild game.  If I had my choice, I would take this game off.  The game that is on television right now that has my interest, isn’t even an NHL game.  The game I would rather watch is the North Dakota vs Minnesota game in the Frozen Four semi-final game.  Union...
