Niklas Backstrom And Kyle Brodziak Available In Minnesota

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, Chuck Fletcher has a history of draft-day trades and spent last week working the phones. “Everyone calls everybody,” the Wild GM said. “You don’t see a whole bunch of trades the week prior to the draft. It’s all about trying to figure out who your likely dance partners can be the week at the draft. It’ll take a move or...

. @2ITB_Buffalo: Murray will have few partners in his quest to get back into the first round

Tim Murray dropped a bombshell at the GM meetings when he told Pierre LeBrun that he wants another first round selection in the upcoming draft and that he’s willing to take on salary in order to accomplish that goal. Perhaps it wasn’t a bombshell so much as an indication that Murray plans on being busy ahead of and through this month’s draft. Here’s his quote from LeBrun’s...

Showtime In Chicago

from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times, He danced through the Minnesota defense as they picked their poison between him and Patrick Sharp, dusting Ryan Suter and splitting Jonas Brodin and Kyle Brodziak — the Wild’s top two defensemen and one of their top shutdown forwards — before roofing a backhander over Ilya Bryzgalov to break a tie and unleash a deafening roar...

Wild's Game 5 overtime loss has familiar ending

There was just too much deja vu for the Minnesota Wild in Colorado on Saturday night. Minnesota will return home facing an elimination game at Xcel Energy Center on Monday night for Game 6 after the Colorado Avalanche scored a goal with 1 minute, 14 seconds left in regulation after pulling their goalie and added an overtime winner by teenager Nathan MacKinnon 3:27 into overtime....

Minnesota Wild: Solving the Kyle Brodziak problem (video)

It’s nearly impossible to think that Kyle Brodziak was able to score 22 goals and amass 44 points just two years ago during the 2011-12 season. It seems like it has been nearly a 180 degree turnaround since then as Brodziak has arguably been the Wild player who has struggled the most this season. With one year remaining on his contract and his play having faltered all season...

Wild miss chance to take control of series with OT loss to Avalanche in Game 1

Everything was going the Minnesota Wild's way through the second period on Thursday night in the playoff opener at Colorado. Minnesota held a 4-2 lead. The much-maligned Kyle Brodziak had scored his first career playoff goal and rookie Erik Haula kept up his production even while moving to the fourth line because Mikael Granlund returned to the lineup. The Wild added a power...

Wild win 4-2 against the Blues

In a game straight out of Bizarro land, the Wild beat the St. Louis Blues 4-2 tonight. It was the first win for the Wild in a match against the Blues in 10 games. Kyle Brodziak scored not one, but two goals. In the opponents net, and with an actual goalie in said net. An OLYMPIC goalie even. Matt Cooke pulled a penalty. John Curry was freaking fantastic (more on him later). The...

Curry and Wild stand tall in 4-2 win over Blues

Kyle Brodziak dangles the puck around a sprawling T.J. Oshie.   I will admit, I am barely invested in tonight’s Wild game.  If I had my choice, I would take this game off.  The game that is on television right now that has my interest, isn’t even an NHL game.  The game I would rather watch is the North Dakota vs Minnesota game in the Frozen Four semi-final game.  Union...

Wild extend wild-card playoff edge with fifth straight win

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The worry for the Minnesota Wild coming off the Olympic break was continuing the momentum that had seen Minnesota go from out of a playoff position to the wild-card leader in the Western Conference. The three-week break in February for the Olympics allowed many players to rest, others to recover from injuries. The biggest challenge was re-establishing the success...

Wild's third line turning solid defense into goals

At the end of a franchise-record six-game losing streak, Wild coach Mike Yeo was calling on players -- any players -- to score goals. That included pleas to third- and fourth-line players not usually in scoring roles. In the eight games since, the Wild are 6-2-0 and have scored at least four goals five times. And despite its emphasis on shutting down opponents' top line, the...

Wild get back to defensive style to snap six-game losing streak

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The music could be heard outside the Minnesota Wild locker room for the first time in two weeks. The smiles on the faces spoke to the relief Thursday night's 4-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres provided. For one night, Minnesota could feel good. Jason Pominville scored against his former team for the second straight game. Kyle Brodziak snapped a 30-game goal...

Minnesota Wild getting good 'D' from third line

One reason Wild coach Mike Yeo scrapped his three-scoring-lines system after just two periods last week was the need for a checking line, he said. On a team rooted in defense, he believed it was important to return to a third line that concentrated on shutting down opponents' top lines. That, after all, was the reason Matt Cooke was brought in last spring and Devin Setoguchi...

Bolts D Gudas grows into more than hit machine

Looking like a hunter stalking prey Radko Gudas lined up Minnesota’s Kyle Brodziak and delivered a text book hip check sending Brodziak head-over-heels into the side boards. The play elicited a roar from the crowd and a retaliation penalty from Wild defenseman Marco Scandella. When executed properly the hip check is a lost art form capable of giving a lift to the bench and forcing...
