Minnesota Wild match Blues’ physicality in potential first round preview

Kyle Brodziak and Mikko Koivu sit next to each other in the Wild locker room at Xcel Energy Center. Because of that, Brodziak is used to having his personal space invaded by the media, which is often huddled around Koivu after games. Thursday, though, after Brodziak scored two goals in the Wild's 4-2 win over the St. Louis Blues, it was Koivu that had his space invaded has the media huddled around Brodziak. In the funniest moment of the night, Brodziak jokingly made sure the team's captain knew it. "Come on Koivu," Brodziak joked. "They're waiting." It was all in good fun after the......

Minnesota Wild vs Pittsburgh Penguins: What a whomping! recap

Minnesota Wild vs Pittsburgh Penguins: What a whomping! recap

Wild win 4-0 against the Pens in a contest that was never really much of a contest What a game for the Minnesota Wild. They started off flying right from the beginning and never took their foot off the throat. Matt Moulson teamed up with Erik Haula to get the first goal of the game. Moulson flipped the puck up to Haula, who managed to outwork the Robert Bortuzzo (and by outwork I obviously mean straight up embarrass), despite Bortuzzo being practically on top of him. Haula flipped the puck past Jeff Zatkoff with ease, and the Wild were up 1-0 early in the 1st. Mikko Koivu continued his...

Fantasy Hockey News for Tuesday

A fantasized look at Monday's NHL action Alec Martinez has benefited from some good bounces. On the season, the 26 year-old has 11 goals (and only eight assists, leading all NHL defencemen in selfishness). Buyers beware: his shooting percentage of 15.5% is significantly higher than his last three seasons of 3.3%, 7.7%, and 6.8%. Nonetheless, he's scored a single point in 12 of the last 15 games, which is pretty consistent production (and the kind Drew Doughty owners would love to see). His minutes are slightly up lately. Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu each had a goal and an assist. Koivu has...
