3 Things We Learned from the Wild’s loss to the Predators: Protecting the puck is of utmost importance

3 Things We Learned from the Wild’s loss to the Predators: Protecting the puck is of utmost importance

When the bar for the Wild’s performance this season was already set so low, making it interesting in Nashville feels like a moral victory, all things considering. Except they don’t reward points in the standings for making it interesting, and not one team is going to feel bad about the Wild stumbling out of the gate. Poor execution making passes and overall terrible puck support from the defensive zone to the offensive zone has really been the story for every game thus far. So let’s get into it. Here’s three big things we learned following the Wild’s 4-2 loss in Nashville to the...

More life from the Wild, but another slow start, another loss in Nashville

More life from the Wild, but another slow start, another loss in Nashville

Minnesota had chances to tie it against the Predators, but it was too little too late once again. Entering Monday’s game, all we asked was that somebody would give new Wild GM and former Predators Assistant GM, Paul Fenton, a time machine. That way, he could have traveled back and undone all those brilliant trades he was involved in. Filip Forsberg? Gone. P.K. Subban? See ya. Ryan Johansen? Not today, buddy. Why was that time machine so much to ask, and why were those guys all on the ice punishing Minnesota? Time travel gaffes aside, the Wild did look better Monday than they did in...

Early Diagnosis: What’s Plaguing the Wild?

Early Diagnosis: What’s Plaguing the Wild?

The Minnesota Wild are four games into the season and have only one win. The Wild were fortunate to push two games to overtime to salvage some points before losing, but three losses and one win is not a great look to start the season. Before we go any further, let’s be clear: the Wild are not yet in trouble; four games is less than 5% of the season total, and there is plenty of time to turn things around. Let’s also be clear that two overtime losses are not far off from two overtime wins, particularly when one of those is in the shootout. In other words: The Wild could be at 3-1 with...

Minnesota Wild vs. Nashville Predators: Northern Exposure

Divisional rivals to play for first time this season. Tonight at 7:00ct the Minnesota Wild (1-1-2) make their first trip of the season to Bridgestone Arena to face the Nashville Predators (4-1-0). The Wild return a similar cast to last season with not many new names on their roster. Nonetheless, they have been unable to pick up some early season wins, as they sit at 6th in the Central Division. Despite perennially participating in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Wild have never played the Predators in a series, so tonight is an odd battle of division rivals that have been either good or great...
