Flames “Slash” Wild’s Hopes in 3-2 SO Win

Flames “Slash” Wild’s Hopes in 3-2 SO Win

The Wild made their first visit to the Saddledome since injuring our pride and joy Johnny Hockey The Flames hosted the Minnesota Wild tonight for the first time this season as they played the second game of their three game homestand. Calgary defeated the Wild earlier in the year by a score of 1-0. Johnny Gaudreau scored the only goal of the game before getting injured on a slash from Eric Staal. The Wild meanwhile are coming off a loss to the Canucks two nights ago which snapped a three game winning streak for them. Chad Johnson got the start in net for the Flames again after being...

Wilderness Walk: Goose Migrates North

Gustav Olofsson made his season debut alongside fellow Swede Jonas Brodin After another tough loss against another beatable opponent, the Wild get a few days off to think about what they have done.  Their Western Canada trip continues Friday in Calgary where the Flames may be looking for a little revenge against a team that hurt their best player in Johnny Gaudreau.  Consistency continues to plague this team, and they have to figure out how to beat vulnerable teams. I feel like this sets the mood pretty well... Wild News Eric Staal Quietly Having A Rebound Year With Minnesota WildThe...

Wild dispatches Penguins in 6-2 thumping

The Wild have scored a total of 10 goals against the defending Stanley Cup Champions, while only surrendering four to sweep the season series. Charli Coyle, Jonas Brodin, Zach Parise, Mikael Granlund, and Nino Niederreiter pummeled the net behind Penguins’ starter Marc-Andre Fleury as the offense finally came to life. Minnesota was able to use the power play to pull away from the Pens and keep the pressure on Pittsburgh throughout the game. The first period, and a theme throughout much of the game, the Parise - Eric Staal - Coyle line forced the issue deep in the Pittsburgh zone. Coyle...

Chad Johnson does a controlled burn on Wild offense in 1-0 Flames win

Johnny Hockey’s goal early in the first period was all it would take for the Flames to dispatch the Wild on home ice. Chad Johnson shut the door the rest of the way as the Wild found it difficult to solve the Flames netminder. It is just the second time in 11 days the Minnesota and 2nd time this season the Wild would get shutout in 1-0 fashion. The Wild came out firing from the opening faceoff. Eric Staal was denied on two breakaways, and it was shift after shift that the Wild took it to the Flames. Mikko Koivu got a breakaway with so much time, he tried his forehand/backhand shootout...

Wild downs defending champ Penguins 4-2 to open road trip

Eric Staal has 1 goal and 2 assists to lead Wild to victory It’s been four long days since the Wild last played a game. In the mean time, the Wild were able to practice and get healthy before they took on the defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins. Minnesota has struggled the last couple years in Pittsburgh. A 7-2 loss two seasons ago was the reason Chuck Fletcher made the trade for Devan Dubnyk to play against the Buffalo Sabres two days later. Another player the Wild has acquired, NHL vet Eric Staal, has looked like a rejuvenated player this late in his career. Flanked by...
