Preview: Wild at Sabres

The Minnesota Wild have one win this month and are at the bottom of their division. Things are even worse for the Buffalo Sabres, who have yet to win in 2015 and also are looking up at the rest of the teams in their division. The weight of expectations, however, weighs far more heavily on one team. Minnesota could have a new face in net as it tries to end a six-game losing streak...

How long can the Wild wait for Kuemper?

The Wild have been a terrible disappointment this season. With a lot of money sunk into stars like Zach Parise and Thomas Vanek, and hope riding on younger guys like Mikael Granlund and Charlie Coyle, it seemed as though the team was poised to be the best Minnesota has seen since the Vikings went to the NFC championship game. For the most part, the team has been living up to promise...

Minnesota Wild exploring goalie market

USATI Seemingly every year, or at least it feels that way, the Minnesota Wild are looking for a goaltender. It’s no different this season, as the team is reportedly gauging the trade market for a netminder. This shouldn’t be super surprising given their issues in net this year both in terms of injury and performance. The Wild have the second-lowest save percentage in the...

Yeo snaps, storms off during 'bad' Wild practice

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- For the first several minutes the Minnesota Wild were on the ice for Wednesday's practice, head coach Mike Yeo seemed agitated. He collected his team together and reprimanded them for a sluggish start to practice. Practice continued and Yeo didn't see the response he wanted. So, one last time, he brought them together near center ice and admonished them with an...

Kuemper stops 34 shots in important 3-1 win over Toronto

Darcy Kuemper tries to make his way across the crease to make a save.
