Timely strikes by the Wild allow them to escape with a 2-1 victory in Dallas

Nate Prosser retreats as Dallas’ Jordie Benn enters the Wild zone. Today’s game sort of remind me of the World War II-film Kelly’s Heroes.  If you’re unfamiliar with this film, Lieutenant Kelly (Clint Eastwood) leads a rag-tag band of Army misfits behind enemy lines in order to steal $40 million dollars worth of gold bars from a bank in France.  Part of that band of misfits...

Wild claim Nate Prosser from the Blues

The St. Louis Blues tried to send Nate Prosser through waivers, but the Minnesota Wild stepped in and claimed the defenseman. The move came as a big surprise not because of the fact Prosser was claimed, but because of who claimed him. Prosser spent four years with Minnesota before leaving over the summer to sign a contract with the Blues. To reiterate, the Wild let Prosser leave...

Wild have turned the page, ready for key offseason

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Xcel Energy Center was eerily silent Friday. No Christmas-colored lights reflecting off the glass. No sound of sticks colliding with pucks over the ambience of skates cutting up the ice. Save for a few media exchanges, the only noise came behind closed doors as general manager Chuck Fletcher, coach Mike Yeo and the rest of the Wild front office conducted player...

Wild Saturday: Minnesota not feeling overconfident heading into Game 5

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- There's a trap lurking inside the Madhouse on Madison. The Wild knows it's there. It stumbled into a similar one two weeks ago. Riding the high of two convincing home wins that evened the Stanley Cup playoffs' Western Conference quarterfinal round at two games apiece, the West's top wild-card seed came out flat and never recovered in a Game 5 overtime loss April...

Wild’s third period push helps Minnesota get important 3-1 regulation win against Coyotes

Lots on the line tonight for the Minnesota Wild, both for the players and probably the Head Coach as well If you want to watch a game that pretty much has the season on the line, this is the game for you.  I know pessimism was my feeling for much of the day.  And it’s not just the game between the Wild and Phoenix.  There are the other games in the Western Conference for Wild...

Wild vs. Red Things

One of my favorite games in gym class as a kid was 'Medic', a game similar to the classic game of Dodgeball.  Medic was played with both two teams and players who were knocked out of the game simply sat where they were struck but could return to action if a Medic stood and touched your shoulder for a count of one-thousand-one, one-thousand-two, one-thousand-three.  Each team had...

Wild's 3rd period rally salvages point in 4-3 overtime loss to New Jersey

A few years back I did an annual article series called the 'Best and Worst Fans of the NHL' where I rated each of the fanbases in the league.  I rated each fanbase on average attendance in comparison to the capacity of their respective arena which also took into account their regular season record as well as internet presence.  Teams that don't draw at a 100% yet had a strong team...
