Minnesota Wild easily tame lackluster Florida Panthers 4-1

Jason Zucker's brace sends Cats to another frustrating loss on home ice. The first game back at home after a lengthy road trip is usually a tricky proposition for most NHL teams, and introducing three rusty players back into the lineup did the Florida Panthers no favors, as they were defeated by the Minnesota Wild 4-1 last night at the BB&T Center. After Jimmy Hayes couldn't corral Nick Bjugstad's to get the puck out of the zone, Jason Zucker opened the scoring early in the first period. Zucker took a quick pass Mikko Koivu and beat Roberto Luongo five-hole at the 5:58 mark. Later in the...

[Wild About Numbers]: What's Going On With Mikko Koivu's Production This Season?

Koivu isn't putting up assists like he normally does so it's time to take a closer look and see what's up. Criticism of Mikko Koivu's point totals is nothing new among Wild fans, hell it was a hot button issue last year for sure. But this season it has gone into overdrive. His scoring has slowed to a trickle, even compared to last season's rates and his issues are emphasised by the fact that, for probably the first time ever, the Wild are playing good offensive hockey as a whole and are generating plenty of shots and goals. He has 2 goals and 1 assist so far this season at 5v5 in 18 games....

Wilderness Walk: Scott Sterling Edition

The Wild won last night on the road in Philadelphia in dramatic fashion. Good morning Wilderness, and welcome to yet another edition of the Wilderness Walk! Last night your Minnesota Wild walked into Philadelphia, and walked out with their heads held high, and that's about all I know about it. I was busy during the game, so I'll I got out of it was Jason Zucker is a hero, Mikko Koivu is dying (rumors may have been exaggerated) and Stu Bickel played actual minutes (are you fucking kidding me?) So the Wild won on some last minute heroics, and some other stuff may or may not have happened as...

Wild Week Preview: Wild Close To Full Strength

The Minnesota Wild's recent slump coincided with a rash of injuries, and don't look now, but the Wild are getting healthy. When the Wild lost four straight games last week, there were a lot of culprits that people pinned on the streak. Maybe you thought it was Thomas Vanek not scoring enough goals. Maybe you thought it was Mikko Koivu's uncharacteristically low point output. Maybe you thought it was the anemic power play. And maybe you thought it was just a recent spot of bad luck. But after the returns of Jared Spurgeon, Zach Parise, and Marco Scandella to the Wild after their respective...

Minnesota Wild fall to Canadiens for third straight loss

MONTREAL -- Mike Yeo looked on in disbelief from behind the Wild bench with one arm at his side and the other leaning on the glass. Darcy Kuemper had his arms out by his side and raised his shoulders. Mikko Koivu and Ryan Suter begged and pleaded to referees.

Wild Do the Swarming, Hunt Down Sharks in 4-3 Shootout Win

Jason Zucker worked wonders on the newly formed line of Mikko Koivu centering Zucker and Charlie Coyle. That line was easily the best line of the game. Minnesota was down 1-0 after the first period after Mirco Mueller got the benefit of a deflection off of Zach Parise's stick. The first period saw the Minnesota defense scramble in their own zone unlike they have all season, minus Monday's game against the Rangers. Matt Dumba was one of those defensemen that struggled mightily as he telegraphed passes and had bad giveaways at each blueline. Mikael Granlund was a bit of a giveaway machine as...
