Minnesota Wild vs Nashville Predators: Over, done, now time for the playoffs

Wild fall 7-3 in a game that was, well forgettable. Unlike last season, the final game of the Minnesota Wild's 2013-2014 regular season had no impact on the final standings when it came to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Good thing too, because this game was pretty ugly. On the plus side, Jason Pominville scored his 30th goal of the season, and became only the 4th player to do so in a Minnesota Wild jersey. He also scored 2 assists to put him at 60 points this season Zach Parise scored his 29th goal of the season (despite missing 15 games), which gave him 56 points total. He tried hard to get...

Instant Recap: Minnesota Wild down Winnipeg Jets in absolute snoozefest

In a game that featured one goal scored on just forty-one total shots, the Wild punched their ticket to the playoffs. Michael Hutchinson received no run support from his fellow teammates as the Winnipeg Jets fell to the Minnesota Wild by a 1-0 final. The only blemish on his record for the night was a Charlie Coyle goal early in the second period which came on a nice feed from Wild captain Zach Parise. Hutchinson made sixteen saves in a losing effort while his counterpart Ilya Bryzgalov recorded a twenty-four save shutout victory. Hutchinson is the fourth different netminder to start a game...

Wild's Zach Parise returns to game despite vicious hit from Brandon Bollig

By Darian Somers It looked like Zach Parise wouldn’t return after a nasty hit from Brandon Bollig on Thursday night. Just a few minutes though, Minnesota fans could sigh in relief. Parise left Thursday’s game in the second period for a few minutes, but returned after taking a hit to the head about half way […]

Wild: Big line gets biggest goals from its smallest player, Zach Parise

CHICAGO -- As Wild coach Mike Yeo was forming his new top line, he wanted a big trio. Mikko Koivu (6-foot-3, 222 pounds) and Charlie Coyle (6-3, 221) fit the bill, and Zach Parise -- well, he plays big.

VOTE: Who would you take if Devils could get back Zach Parise or Ilya Kovalchuk?

The Devils lost one star winger after the 2012 Stanley Cup Final through free agency, then another last summer through a bogus retirement.

Parise hears boos, gets goal in return to Rock; Sestito “feels all right” after taking elbow to head

Zach Parise knew what was coming, so the former Devils captain wasn’t surprised at all that he was booed every time he touched the puck in his return to Prudential Center tonight. “No, I really wasn’t,” Parise said after his Minnesota Wild lost 4-3 in overtime to the Devils “I was kind of anticipating that.” Parise was back at The Rock for the first time since leaving the Devils to sign with the Wild as unrestricted free agent on July 4, 2012. The former Devils captain said he enjoyed everything about the day, “but the outcome of the game.” “I saw a lot of really good...

In Parise's Homecoming, Wild Fall to Devils in Overtime

The Wild were able to pick up a point, but lost in a frustrating fashion. It wasn't a win. And it wasn't pretty. In Zach Parise's return to New Jersey, where he was drafted and came of age, the Wild fell flat for the first two periods in the Prudential Center. The first period saw the Wild go on the power-play 4 minutes into the game, but the Wild showed off their power-play prowress, and missed the opportunity to score the first goal. The Wild ended up the first goal of the game when Michael Ryder took a pass from Patrik Elias and scored from the middle of the ice. The Wild then took a...

VIDEO: Zach Parise returns to New Jersey for the first time, gets booed by Devils fans

By Darian Somers Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise would probably get booed for helping an old woman cross the street on Thursday night in New Jersey. Parise, the former captain of the Devils, returned to the Prudential Center for the first time since signing a 13-year deal with the Wild after the 2011-12 season, and […]

Live post: Devils vs. Minnesota Wild, 3/20/14

The Devils lead the Minnesota Wild 3-1 in the third period of tonight’s game at Prudential Center. Left wing Tim Sestito has not returned since having to be helped off the ice after he was elbowed in the head by Wild defenseman Nate Prosser with 2:01 left in the first period. THIRD PERIOD The Wild got one goal back with Zach Parise being credited with the power-play deflection just 21 seconds into the third period. Defenseman Ryan Suter let go a wrist shot form the left point that appeared to deflect off Devils defenseman Bryce Salvador in front and go in over Schneider’s left shoulder,...
