An injury plagued Wild finds a 5-2 victory over the Blackhawks

Minnesota came into Thursday night already hurting for forward depth. With Mikael Granlund nursing a lower body injury, and Zach Parise with, who the hell knows, the Wild’s first game against the hated Blackhawks from Chicago would put not just a dent, but a huge fricken gouge into the Wild top nine. But the Wild’s leading scorer, Chris Stewart, of all people, would score two goals en route to a gutty, gritty 5-2 victory. During a scoreless first period, the Wild, which had lost nearly all of its defensive structure in the second and third periods of the Carolina game last weekend,...

Wilderness Walk: Something to Believe In

The Wild (finally) get to play Game 3 of the season and a look at the Europeans’ impact on the NHL It’s only been two games so far this season, but the results haven’t been very pretty so far. Further compounding the frustration for Wild fans has been the ridiculous pace of games for their team. Minnesota has only had two games. Meanwhile, the St. Louis Blues, the Chicago Blackhawks, and the Colorado Avalanche have all had four games and all have won at least three of them. The hot start for these three teams and the lack of opportunity to even get standings points have left the Wild...
