Islanders-Wild Preview

The New York Islanders and Minnesota Wild have played well of late but were left frustrated after losing their most recent contests. Both look to get back on track when the Wild host the Islanders on Tuesday night. New York (19-8-0) led 3-0 after 20 minutes and appeared to be headed for a fourth consecutive victory and eighth straight at home Saturday before unraveling in a 6-4 loss...

Wild drop back-and-forth duel with Ducks, but encouraged by power play

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- With one 11-second span Friday night, the Minnesota Wild seemed to release all of the anxiety regarding their short-circuited power play. A loss kept Minnesota from being too excited for its breakthrough. A team and building erupted with two power-play goals in 11 seconds of the second period and the Wild erased a three-goal deficit, but Minnesota ended up losing...

Slow start dooms Wild in 5-4 loss to Ducks

Zach Parise chases Anaheim’s Ryan Getzlaf.   There are several times during the course of a season where I hate looking at the Wild’s schedule. Right now is one of those times. Wednesday night’s game against Montreal had me nervous. We rarely play well against the Canadiens, and let’s face it, Wednesday was a horribly game. The only remotely positive aspect to the game...

Wild solidifying future by locking up young core

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- One by one, they were beginning to be checked off the list: Nino Niederreiter and Darcy Kuemper, then Jonas Brodin, Charlie Coyle and, most recently, Marco Scandella. The Minnesota signed Niederreiter and Kuemper to modest extensions before the season started. In-season, Brodin, Coyle and Scandella agreed to long-term extensions. The young core of Minnesota's future...

Wild buried early in return home

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild head coach Mike Yeo gave thought to pulling goaltender Darcy Kuemper after Los Angeles scored twice. Yeo contemplated the decision again after another goal. Not pulling Kuemper early enough was among Yeo's regrets as the Wild lost 4-0 to Los Angeles. Kuemper allowed four goals on 10 shots in the first period. Niklas Backstrom replaced Kuemper in...

Wild unable to dig out of 4-goal 1st period deficit as they fall 4-0 in home loss to Los Angeles

Zach Parise races into the Los Angeles zone. For grown ups, the holidays are often a nice excuse to return home to the comforts of family.  It entails packing up into the car, driving some untold distance and then sort of getting reacquainted with the family members you have not seen in a while.  At least this is what happens if you’re lucky.  The holidays can sometimes be a...

Pass-ive play costs Wild as they snap 4-game winning streak in 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay

Zach Parise tries to corral a loose puck. I remember when I was in 4th grade, and I was involved in a lot of different sports including basketball.  I played in a simple house league in my hometown, and they had two tournaments with one in the middle of the season and one at the end.  In the mid-season tournament where teams are paired effectively at random, my team which was...

Morning After: Right response, wrong finish for Flyers

The Flyers season is starting to become a broken record. The effort was there but the goals weren't. "We played well enough to win, but you have to score." You've probably heard this before. The result was the same for the Flyers as they fired 39 shots on Darcy Kuemper on Thursday night to score just two goals. In the end, a late turnover by Andrew MacDonald led to the game...

Zucker nets winner in final minute, Wild down Flyers

When the captain struck for a late power-play goal, it appeared the Flyers struggles in the standings were finally over. Just three minutes separated the Flyers from at least a point and a chance for more. But in the final minute, it all changed on a broken play. The puck took a strange hop off the end boards and went straight to the stick of Ryan Suter who threaded a pass to...

Wild spoil Flyers’ celebration with late goal in a 3-2 road victory

Jason Pominville battles for the puck along the wall. Television can be a marvelous tool.  It can be educational (if watching the right shows).  I, and many of my generation and younger, grew up watching the institution that is Sesame Street. I learned to count to ten in Spanish, learned to look both ways before crossing a street while holding the hand of a grown-up person, and...

Josh Harding’s suspension lifted, placed on waivers

            The saga of Josh Harding continues and it just keeps getting odder. According to the Minnesota Wild, the goalie was activated from team suspension and then immediately placed on waivers. Considering his play in limited time last year, the question is “why was he placed on waivers?” The Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Mike...

NHL Western Conference round-up

Anaheim Ducks The Ducks have started the 2014-15 season on the same torrid pace that won them the Western Conference regular season title a year ago. They stand 10-3-0, with the usual suspects Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf collecting 15 and 14 points respectively. The only question mark in Anaheim is their #1 goaltender. 21-year-old John Gibson started the season opener, got torched...

Game 9: Rebound against the Wild

The Minnesota Wild are in town tonight to take on our New York Rangers. These aren’t the Wild you’re used to though, this club has allowed just nine goals (22.2 shots against/game) this season. Darcy Kuemper already has three shutouts (and an unsustainable .967 SV%), and the team plays incredible defense. The good news: Even […] The post Game 9: Rebound against the Wild appeared...

Wild's third win comes in Kuemper's third shutout

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- There's a common thread in all three of the Minnesota Wild's victories: all three have been shutouts. Look even closer at those three shutouts and there's another common denominator. Goalie Darcy Kuemper has been between the pipes for each one, including Thursday's 2-0 victory over the visiting Arizona Coyotes. Thanks to Kuemper's NHL-best third shutout of the...

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

Wild battle for the puck in the offensive zone. I think Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo summed it up pretty well when he was asked how he felt about having just 4 games over the last 15 days, “We’re sick of practicing, right now we’re our biggest rivals.”  I can certainly relate to this.  When I used to be a freshman football coach, from the start of practice in early August...
