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...

Ryan Kesler Cheap-Shots Mikael Granlund, Receives Major Penalty (GIF)

Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Kesler is a top two-way center, but he often plays on the edge. He crossed the line at the end of Friday night’s Ducks-Wild game by receiving a major penalty for charging Minnesota forward Mikael Granlund. Wild winger Zach Parise, who had been battling with Kesler all game, stepped in to defend Granlund and received a major penalty for cross checking...

Kesler's buzzer-beater blow triggers Wild-Ducks melee

Forget buzzer-beaters. Ryan Kesler prefers delivering buzzer-blows. At the tail end of Friday's matchup between the Ducks and Wild -- with the Wild leading 2-1 -- the Anaheim center delivered a blistering check on Minnesota center Mikael Granlund, sending him crashing into the sideboards as the final horn sounded. This, of course, triggered a mini-melee on the ice, with left...

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...

Wild's top line in first-class form already

When the Minnesota Wild reconvened this season for training camp, head coach Mike Yeo assessed a deep group of forwards that was lengthened by the arrival of high-scoring winger Thomas Vanek and expected growth from the team's stable of young forwards. Nothing was set in stone for Yeo. As training camp unfolded, he fully expected to make changes to Minnesota's lines trying...

Wild's Kuemper learning to win the 'easy' ones

Darcy Kuemper didn’t have the best seat in the house during the Wild’s dominant season-opening victory over Colorado on Thursday night. In fact, the youngest opening-night starting goalie in Wild history probably could have used binoculars. Most of the game was played on the other side of the rink while Kuemper stood in his crease, waiting patiently for large stretches of time...

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

ST. 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...

Minnesota Wild bury Avalanche in season opener

Wow. That’s all that really needs to be said after the Minnesota Wild dismantled the Colorado Avalanche in its season and home opener at Xcel Energy Center on Thursday night. The Wild displayed both depth and tenacity for 60 minutes while chasing Semyon Varlamov from the net in a 5-0 victory. Zach Parise started off the season on the right foot by scoring a goal and adding a pair...

Wild dominate season opener in 5-0 rout of Colorado

Nathan MacKinnon and Charlie Coyle battle for the puck. “We hate them, they hate us,” said Colorado Avalanche’s Matt Duchene.  They say familiarity breeds contempt, and playoff success spawns hatred.  After the Wild dismissed the Avalanche in 7 games last post-season for the 2nd time in the franchises’ respective histories I can understand why the Avalanche save their hate...

Wild out to prove they belong in 'next tier'

ST.
