Frustration lingers for Wild following OT loss

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Behind the wooden, emblem-adorned doors of the Minnesota Wild locker room, a frustrated team had a meeting following Saturday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Nashville Predators. For much longer than usual, the doors stayed closed instead of opening up to reporters following the game. More words were shared between a team that battled back from down two goals to force...

Wild fall 6-5 in overtime in high scoring affair against Nashville

Huge game this Saturday night against the Predators. Last summer, the Nashville parted ways with the only head coach they had ever known Barry Trotz who had served 14 years as the team’s bench boss.  Trotz’s teams brought energy and a blue collar work ethic each and every game and the Predators always tried to do their best with a lineup created from one of the NHL’s most...

Preview: Predators at Wild

Neither the Nashville Predators nor the Minnesota Wild have been particularly explosive on offense and both have struggled on the power play. Nashville has compensated with the league's best goaltending to put themselves among the West's top teams, however, while Minnesota's more mediocre play in net has led to inconsistent results. The Predators look for a fourth win in five games...

Wild getting frustrated as losses pile up

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Zach Parise was visibly frustrated. The Wild's veteran forward didn't have to say anything to make that clear. Just minutes after his team lost 3-2 in overtime to visiting Boston, Parise was the only player in the locker room as a media horde approached him. Someone had to answer questions about how Minnesota lost its second game in as many days, the first back...

Key veterans and power play lets team down again as Wild lose in overtime 3-2 to the Bruins

Zach Parise chases after a Boston defenseman. While I’ve spent most of my athletic career as a coach or player I have spent some time as a referee.  Its not an easy job, and you don’t have the benefit of slow motion and multiple camera angles so you are forced to go with your instincts.  What can seem obvious to a person watching on TV can easily be obscured at ice level and...

32. Boston Bruins at Minnesota Wild. We’re Going Back To Back, Jack!

Ah, the dreaded back to back. If you’re looking for a beacon of light it is that the Bruins don’t end a back to back against the Canadiens. That’s something right? RIGHT?! In reality the Bruins are playing the Western Conference versions of themselves. The Wild have been struggling with injuries and now it looks like their goaltending duo is sick, which automatically means...

2nd period let downs helps thwart Wild in 5-3 loss to Chicago

Jonas Brodin battles Chicago’s Marcus Kruger. The playoffs are where rivalries are made, or at least that is a common belief among sports fans.  A win or a loss in a playoff series can boost the confidence or haunt a club for years and some feel an element of hatred develops between those teams especially if they play in a series of games.  This might be blasphemy to some fans...
