Wild fall again, this time to Philly


There’s no delicate way to say this, so I’m just going to come out and say it. This team is done unless something drastic happens soon. Sure, they’re still in a playoff spot as of now, and they could very well stay there but things aren’t looking good. This team is beyond fragile. It’s beyond... 

Gameday Thread: Koivu nominated to first ASG


It’s amazing that Mikko Koivu hasn’t been named to an All Star roster before, especially with how important he has been to the Minnesota Wild over the last few seasons, but the NHL rectified that problem on Thursday by naming Koivu to its 42 man roster for the All Star game on January 29. Koviu,... 

Wild down Sharks in a shootout


Well, the Wild did it. They won against a good team and, with the exception of the last few minutes of the game, played a very good game. Of course, the last few minutes of the game almost saw the wheels come off entirely and the Wild skated through overtime by the skin of their teeth to get to the shootout... 

Gameday Thread: Wild look to stop slump against Sharks


Well, I suppose if you’re going to play the injury card, you might as well do it right. Pierre-Marc Bouchard has officially been shut down, suffering a concussion that seems to have been sustained during Zach Bogosian’s “clean” hit last month in Winnipeg. Now, we’re not going to debate whether... 

Wild struggle, drop another against Flames


You know, it’s getting harder and harder to write about this team. Not because I don’t want to talk about a loss. I’ve got no problem doing that. Where the problem starts is when I come to what to write on a nightly basis, because I don’t want to sound like a broken record but, unfortunately,... 

Wild lose again, time for a change?


Well, regression or not, it’s undeniable that the Wild are on a losing streak – big time. I’ve been sick as a dog lately, so I taped last night’s tilt to watch this morning and, I’ll be honest – I fast forwarded through a good part of the game. It’s not that the Wild played bad, per se,... 

Why Matt Kassian needs to stay in the lineup


Last night, against the Oilers, Matt Kassian was on the ice for 2:12, in the penalty box for 20 minutes and ended up as the first star. On the surface, that’s an absolutely ridiculous stat line to end up as a first star. But, in those 2 minutes and 12 seconds, though, Kassian had as much of an impact... 

The Ballad of Dany Heatley


I don’t think anyone can deny that Dany Heatley is having a down year. In fact, he’s had a down couple of years for the Wild sniper. Currently, he’s on pace for 57 points and 25 goals. Respectable numbers for most but, for a former 100 point, 50 goal scorer, another disappointing season and, for... 

Wild break skid; down Oilers


Now that is how you end a losing streak. For those of you who missed the game, find a way to watch it, because words just can’t describe 1) how good of a game it actually was, regardless of the outcome and 2) just how good the Wild looked for the majority of the game. Did the Wild look a bit sloppy... 

Gameday Thread: Wild look to end skid against Oilers


Well, we’re back after an extended winter break to recharge and spend some time with family. Unfortunately, the Wild haven’t yet returned from their winter break yet. They painted the loss with the “moral victory” brush after the game, and you can see why. They dominated play for a lot of the...
