Fluke goals power Wild past the Canadiens, 2-1

Jason Zucker battles for the puck with Montreal’s Mike Weaver. Its funny how statistics can both be informative and seemingly misleading at the same time.  When I was in the process of finishing my Master’s thesis paper, we were told how statistics and studies can be manipulated to reach just about any conclusion the researcher wants it to.  It doesn’t mean valuable things...

Zucker scores twice to help Wild earn 4-1 road win over Florida

Can the Wild stop the red-hot Nick Bjugstad? All Star Games are often boring not only because they don’t really matter but in many cases the players are not trying that hard.  In NHL All Star games, what often makes them boring is the ridiculous unselfishness of some of the players.  While no one likes a puck hog, players often overhandle the puck or try to pass one too many...

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...
