Spurred by Kuemper's 34 saves, Wild post much-needed win

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Head coach Mike Yeo implored Darcy Kuemper to clear his mind during the NHL's holiday break last week, acknowledging the reality that Kuemper was a goaltender with his confidence shaken.

Notebook: Boddy-Calhoun has big game on big stage

MINNEAPOLIS -- Saturday should have been Gophers cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun's senior day. If not for a knee injury that cut his 2013 season short just two games in, Boddy-Calhoun entered 2014 as a redshirt junior. Given how well he played in the loss to Ohio State, Minnesota is sure glad Boddy-Calhoun will be back for one more year. After the Gophers fell behind 14-0 to the...
