Wilderness Walk: Revenge

Wilderness Walk: Revenge

The Wild have their backs against the wall, the Knights sweep, and the Caps keep their hopes alive. “Living well is the best revenge.” - George Herbert (possibly paraphrasing the Talmud). Perhaps Mr. Herbert was a hockey fan. If so, I expect Game 4 would have strained even his commitment to the expression quoted above. Of course, now that the game is over, he’s absolutely right. The best revenge the Wild can get is to outplay the Jets in Game 5. It would be a tall order under normal circumstances, but with the injury of Zach Parise and the egregious reffing, the circumstances are...

Wild lose Parise for multiple weeks to broken sternum

ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Minnesota Wild were hit with a major setback in their first-round playoff matchup with Winnipeg, a broken sternum for left wing Zach Parise suffered in the last game that will keep him out for at least the remainder of the series and likely longer if they advance.The Wild revealed the injury about three hours before Game 4 against the Jets, with a vague announcement on Tuesday by general manager Chuck Fletcher that declared Parises status as week to week.Parise took a hard hit to the chest area with about four minutes remaining in Game 3 and the Wild leading 6-2, when...

Hellebuyck, Jets shutout Wild; heads home for decisive Game 5

Hellebuyck, Jets shutout Wild; heads home for decisive Game 5

Game 3 was fun while it lasted. With a chance to even the series at two games apiece, the Wild chuffed on home ice and dropped Game 4 in shutout fashion. Connor Hellebuyck made 30 saves in a huge response game from him to send his team back to Winnipeg with a commanding 3-1 series lead. Mark Scheifele book-ended the scoring as the Wild struggled to find the back of the net. However, before the national anthems were sung, we found out that Tyler Myers would not dress for the Jets, and in worse news, Zach Parise would be sidelined indefinitely because of a fractured sternum suffered in the...

Morrissey will likely be getting a call from the NHL DoPS after Game 4 The Wild are already behind the 8-ball with Tuesday’s news of Zach Parise going down for what will likely be the remainder of the post-season, regardless of how far the Minnesota Wild might go.

Zach Parise out with broken sternum, because why the hell not?

Zach Parise out with broken sternum, because why the hell not?

Like seriously, the hockey gods need to cut this the f**k out. Good news for Wild fans who had been waiting *checks notes* almost two whole days without getting new injury news: According to the Minnesota Wild, Zach Parise will miss tonight’s game (and the next 4-6 weeks) after suffering a broken sternum Sunday Night. It’s apparently not enough that Minnesota will be missing Luke Kunin (torn ACL) and Ryan Suter (leg broken in two places). It’s also not enough that Minnesota is dealing with lingering injuries to Jared Spurgeon (hamstring), Nino Niederreiter (fibula), and Matt Dumba...

Five things we learned from the Minnesota Wild’s Game 2 loss

Five things we learned from the Minnesota Wild’s Game 2 loss

The Jets thoroughly dominated the Wild in a bruising Game 2. It’s pretty hard to feel good about the Wild’s chances right now. Minnesota is, once again, down 2-0 to start a playoff series. This isn’t unfamiliar territory for the Wild, as they’ve dropped the first 2 games in 7 of their 8 playoff series during the Zach Parise - Ryan Suter era. That’s unfortunate territory to be familiar with. According to Hockey Reference, teams that jump to a 2-0 lead go onto win the series 87.3% of the time. The Wild have fared a tiny bit better, winning 1 of those 7 series, but it’s definitely...

Jets shut down Wild to take commanding 2-0 series lead

That’s what holding serve looks like. The Winnipeg Jets played a mostly suffocating style of defence and got goals from Tyler Myers, Paul Stastny, Andrew Copp and Patrik Laine in a 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Friday night before a crowd of 15,000-plus at Bell MTS Place. Zach Parise spoiled the shutout bid […]

The Minnesota Wild need to load up their top line for Game 2

The Wild must to adjust after a poor offensive showing in Winnipeg. Things looked good for the State of Hockey for about 50 seconds, but the Minnesota Wild fell to the Winnipeg Jets in Game 1 of their Stanley Cup Playoff series. The wheels came off immediately after the Wild went up 2-1 on a Zach Parise goal in the third period. Patrik Laine intercepted a puck and scored, then shortly after, Joe Morrow sealed the Wild’s fate by getting a fortuitous bounce past Devan Dubnyk. Given that the game turned on cracks in the Wild’s goal prevention, it can be easy to focus on that aspect of...

Wild close regular season home schedule with 3-0 shutout win over Oilers

No Ryan Suter? No problem for the Wild. Not only was the top pairing of Matt Dumba and Jonas Brodin able to keep Connor McDavid off the score sheet completely, but Zach Parise is heating up as the Wild close the home schedule with a 3-0 win on #OurIce. The Blues lost to the Washington Capitals in St. Louis tonight, and all eyes look to the West Coast where the Avalanche face the Kings. A loss by Colorado means the Wild clinch their fifth consecutive Stanley Cup Playoff berth. The story, of course, was the Wild’s depleted blue line with the announcement by the team at the start of the game...
