Gameday Thread: Wild at Golden Knights (9:00 p.m.)

Photo by Bruce Kluckhohn/NHLI via On the road again. Back on the road for another late-night tilt, the red-hot Minnesota Wild are taking on the Vegas Golden Knights for the first time this season. Cam Talbot gets the start in net for the Wild, and Marc-Andre Fleury will man the crease on the opposite side for Vegas. Marcus Johansson is still out for Minnesota, so expect the same lines as the Wild have used lately to continue their six-game winning streak, currently the longest in the NHL. Get your caffeine ready, Wild fans. It’s another late night in the State of...

Edmonton Oilers claim Alex Stalock

Photo by Dave Sandford/NHLI via The goaltender that carried last year’s Wild for a brief moment, is now an Oiler. With Kappo Kahkonen’s surge into an NHL role and Cam Talbot’s stable contribution, the Minnesota Wild were forced a hand they didn’t really want to deal with. On Sunday, they placed goaltender Alex Stalock on waivers, to hope for an eventual demotion into the taxi squad. The 33-year-old that had 20 wins to his name last season was too tempting for a club in need, and was claimed by the Edmonton Oilers. The #Oilers have claimed goaltender Alex...

What will the Wild do when Stalock returns?

Photo by John Cordes/Icon Sportswire via Minnesota’s suddenly deep stable of netminders will make for a very crowded roster in the near future File this under “a good problem to have”, but the Minnesota Wild will soon have all of their goaltenders back and healthy - and some difficult decisions on where to put all of them. Kaapo Kahkonen has been more than holding down the fort, backstopping the Wild to four straight wins on the road with a .945 save percentage. Cam Talbot is back from his stint on the COVID list, has backed up Kahks during the last two games,...

Photo by Michael Martin/NHLI via After an extended COVID sabbatical, the Wild are back at it against a familiar foe. Boy, life for the Minnesota Wild really came to a screeching halt there for a bit. But it’s nice to see the majority of the team off the COVID-protocol list. Unfortunately it’s not the whole team, as Jonas Brodin, Brad Hunt, Victor Rask, Carson Soucy, Cam Talbot and Kyle Rau remain unavailable for the time being. There are also a couple unfamiliar faces joining the squad: Iowa Wild standout Calen Addison is joining the squad, — but more importantly...

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ Can’t win out against a MacKinnon-less Avs. Coming into the game, we already knew the Wild were going to be at a disadvantage. With no Matt Dumba, Marcus Foligno, Kevin Fiala or Marcus Johansson, it was an uphill battle from the start.
