The Wild, in fact, have been so good that fans grown accustomed to the late, desperate fight for […]

Wild win in a shootout over Lightning

Wild win in a shootout over Lightning

The Minnesota Wild look to shake off an overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks Wednesday night by welcoming the Tampa Bay Lighting into St. Paul tonight. The Lightning brought in a 2 game winning streak they looked to extend against the best team in the Western Conference. It would take a shootout to decide the winner as the game was somewhat of a offensive struggle for both squads who traded chances but ran into walls known as Devan Dubnyk and Andrei Vasilevskiy. The first period showed a smattering of opportunities, with the Wild's best chances coming when the Zach Parise, Erik Haula,...

Wilderness Walk: Blown Call Edition

Wilderness Walk: Blown Call Edition

Sometimes the blown calls break your way and other news. Sometimes you run into a hot goaltender. Corey Crawford was playing exceptionally well last night. While it is never fun losing to the Chicago Blackhawks, at least the Wild 1) persevered and found ways to score on Crawford (including playing offsides) and 2) took the much-maligned loser point to keep a five point lead on Chicago in the standings. The offsides call that wasn’t before Zach Parise was a mistake on the part of the linesmen last night, but they’re human too. The Blackhawks still finished with a win, so I doubt the...

Wild benefit from controversial ‘inconclusive’ offside challenge on Zach Parise’s goal

The Chicago Blackhawks have a right to be mad here. Zach Parise scored his 11th goal of the season for the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday, but it did not come without some controversy and bizarre NHL shenanigans. Parise, while facing away from the Blackhawks’ goal, redirected the puck into Corey Crawford’s pads.

The Wild’s penalty kill has gone from exceptional, to a mildly passing grade

The Wild’s penalty kill has gone from exceptional, to a mildly passing grade

It hasn’t been a talker much of late, but the penalty kill of the Wild that was once high atop the league with a scorching 96.2 percent efficiency has fallen back to the pack. Still currently ranked 12th in the league, one has to wonder: what happened to that promising start? When looking at the penalty kill, one has to first look at personnel. Of the Wild forwards and defensemen, these following players make up the Wild penalty killing units: Unit 1: Mikael Granlund/Zach Parise - Mikko Koivu Ryan Suter - Jared Spurgeon Unit 2: Eric Staal - Jason Pominville/Erik Haula Marco Scandella -...

Mikael Granlund’s hat trick helps Wild vanquish Vancouver

Mikael Granlund’s hat trick helps Wild vanquish Vancouver

The Minnesota Wild toppled Vancouver 6-3 on the strength of Granlund’s 4-point night. Heading into tonight’s Minnesota Wild game, all the eyes in St. Paul were on Alex Tuch. The 2014 first-rounder made his NHL debut, starting his career on the Wild’s top line alongside decorated veterans Zach Parise and Eric Staal. By the end of the night, the spotlight belonged to Mikael Granlund. Granlund, another Wild first-rounder (from 2010), put an exclamation point on his arrival tonight, notching his first career hat trick and dominating the Vancouver Canucks to the tune of 4 points en route...

A curious case for shifting Erik Haula to the wing

A curious case for shifting Erik Haula to the wing

Why not right? The experiment seems to be working for Mikael Granlund. A lot has been made of the Wild's success in the 2016-17 season. We've seen article after article touting the changes Bruce Boudreau has brought to Minnesota. An endless stream of those extolling the virtues and re-emergence of Eric Staal. Blog post upon blog post hyping up the younger generation in Nino Niederreiter, Charlie Coyle, Erik Haula, and of course Jason Zucker. Mikko Koivu is enjoying a great season. Zach Parise is the workhorse on the team. If Parise is the horsey, then Ryan Suter is obviously the Ox,...
