3 Things We Learned: Dumba-less Wild get blanked by San Jose

3 Things We Learned: Dumba-less Wild get blanked by San Jose

After going 1-5 before their most recent stretch of winning two out of three, the Wild were back in action Tuesday night against the red hot San Jose Sharks who have won four in a row looking for their season long fifth win in a row. Two goals 29 seconds apart in the 2nd would prove to be the difference as the Wild would be shut-out for the second time in their last six games.

Wilderness Walk: Blood in the Water

Sharks prey on struggling Wild, Gritty vs. Santa, and NHL news and notes in the Walk The San Jose Sharks came to our pond last night, and found a sputtering, struggling prey. The ambush was over in a flash. Two goals, 29 seconds apart in the second period. A third goal, 51 seconds into yet another lackluster third period. In the end, the Sharks continued their hot streak, and despite a strong first period, the Wild were left looking for answers in the offensive and defensive zones. The Wild have two more games before the holiday break, their next being at the Pittsburgh Penguins on...

Wild blanked by Sharks 4-0 on home ice

Hoping to salvage a home stand, the Wild ran into an absolute buzz saw named the San Jose Sharks. With a 6-1 record in their last 7 games, the Sharks definitely had their game firing on all cylinders by blanking the Wild 4-0 in St. Paul. Logan Couture scored twice, Joe Pavelski got one, and something called Lukas Radil finished the night off as the Wild still have issues with having losses snowball. The first period was the best period for the Wild all game. Staal hit the post after the puck glanced off Jones early. Jordan Greenway couldn't bury a chance shortly there after. Jones looked...

Sharks at Wild Preview: Injured Wild not so easy pickings for Sharks

With Dumba out and Koivu and Zucker making returns, a shaky Wild still poses a threat. It’s been too long since the San Jose Sharks (18-11-5, 3rd Pacific) were really rolling. But fresh off a 7-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks and winning six of their last seven games, the Sharks are in their best stretch of the season so far. For the Minnesota Wild (17-13-2, 4th Central), after getting off to a slow start, they’ve found consistency in their game for most of the season. December has started out rough for Minnesota, though, and the lose of three key players have made things all the...
