Searching for first power-play goal, Yeo divides units into young vs. veterans

The Minnesota Wild have won two of their first three games, but one area that they’ve struggled in is the power play. So far they’re 0-for-11 and are actually negative overall if you factor in the shorthanded goal that they’ve allowed. Wild coach coach Mike Yeo attempted to address that during yesterday’s practice by creating two new power-play units with one compromised...

Turnovers cost Wild in 2- loss to the Ducks

Mikael Granlund, Zach Parise and Jason Pominville celebrate a goal scored in Anaheim. I don’t know about you, but it’s beginning to feel like season hasn’t really started yet.  Remember those two games against the Colorado Avalanche?  They might as well have been an extension of the pre-season.  There is only one other team in the entire league who has played a mere two...

Notebook: Fontaine back with Wild and on second line

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Curiosity was peaking Minnesota Wild head coach Mike Yeo in training camp when he united second-year forward Justin Fontaine with captain Mikko Koivu and high-scoring winger Thomas Vanek. With Zach Parise, Mikael Granlund and Jason Pominville proving Yeo couldn't split them up, the coach was left to look for a partner for Koivu and Vanek, the team's high...

Avalanche embarrassed in season opener

The Colorado Avalanche dropped their season opener to the Minnesota Wild in unfortunate fashion on Thursday night. The game was over before it started as the Wild throttled the Avalanche 5-0. The stagnant Avalanche offense was outshot 48-16 in the game while Wild goalie Darcy Kuemper earned his third career shutout. The Avs came out flat and were outworked in every facet of the game...

Wild opens new season in style with shutout win over Avs

Craig Leipold, sweating and jittery, couldn’t believe how calm his general manager was before the Wild dropped the puck on the 2014-15 season. Chuck Fletcher explained to his owner that Thursday’s game against the rival Colorado Avalanche was only one of 82, that the Wild wouldn’t be panicking if it lost or printing playoff tickets if it won. If the Wild plays all 82 like...

Wild's dominant win over Avalanche doesn't resemble playoff battle

PAUL, Minn. -- When the Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche met in the first round of last year's playoffs, it was about as tight and exciting of a series for which fans from both sides could have hoped. The series went to seven games and featured four overtimes. Five of the seven games were decided by just one goal. In total, the Wild outscored the Avalanche by two goals...

Vanek: Returning home to Twin Cities was 'bonus' to joining Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Even though he went from a rebuilder to a postseason contender, Jason Pominville wasn't 100-percent thrilled to uproot himself and his family and start anew in the Twin Cities. It took some encouragement from an old friend at first. "You get comfortable in the space that you like, it's hard to leave," newly acquired winger and longtime Pominville...

Sabres lack leadership no more

From Hometown Hockey: Timing never seems to be on the side of the Buffalo Sabres. When they were still a perennial playoff team from 2007 to around 2011 or 2012, the team definitely had talent.

With Ott gone, who will be Buffalo’s next captain?

Since the start of 2013, three different players have worn the ‘C’ in Buffalo — Jason Pominville, Thomas Vanek, and Steve Ott — and they have all been traded. That’s created something of a leadership vacuum for the Sabres going into the 2014-15 campaign. Fortunately, there have some candidates to fill that void. Perhaps the most obvious player is Brian Gionta, who inked...

Just what the Wild needed

The thing that has frustrated Wild fans, essentially since the team came into being, was the inability for the team to score goals from multiple lines. They had Marian Gaborik early, then nothing. They had Martin Havlat, who pretty much WAS nothing. Then they signed Zach Parise and added Jason Pominville, but they couldn’t finish in the playoffs like they would have wanted to...

Wild becoming destination team for players

Minnesota can cling to its slogan as the "State of Hockey." An adopted son demonstrated, again, the lure of the state and the NHL's Minnesota Wild in free agency. For more than a year, Thomas Vanek had his sights set on becoming a free agent, turning down lucrative contract extensions more than once. When free agency opened Tuesday, Vanek was regarded as the top goal...
