Road reaction: Red Wings 5, Wild 4

For 40 minutes, Tuesday's game at Detroit appeared it would go as so many of the Minnesota Wild's games have gone lately. Zach Parise wasn't going to let Tuesday be like the others. Minnesota was outshooting the Red Wings 22-13 but trailed 4-1. New Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk was pulled after allowing four goals on 10 shots and the goals could hardly be blamed on the new netminder...

Wild Struggles Calls for Change

After a December to forget, the Minnesota Wild still are carrying their struggles into the new year after two more losses to San Jose and Chicago. One may think it is time to make some kind of change, but where that is the question?You can first point the finger at the goaltending as of late.

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...

Slumping division rivals meet twice this week as Wild and Blackhawks go home-and-home

The Chicago Blackhawks will face the Minnesota Wild in a central division clash two times this week as they face off Thursday in Minnesota and Sunday at the United Center in Chicago. The powerful Blackhawks forwards were unable to get the puck past Colorado’s Seymon Varlamov, which led to a 2-0 shut out loss on Tuesday night continuing a bad streak of play, as they have gone 4...

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. I don’t think I go out of my way to sing my own praises.  Although its tough to contain one’s self when you’re proud of something.  I’d say I feel as though I can mark something else off my bucket list by being a part of a real radio program.  I’ve called into radio programs before like NHL Live,...
