Kuemper Stops 26 Shots In Wild Shutout Of Coyotes

Darcy Kuemper made 26 saves for his third shutout of the season, and defenseman Jared Spurgeon had two assists to lead the Minnesota Wild past the Arizona Coyotes 2-0 on Thursday night. Kuemper has allowed just two goals in four starts, and has all three of Minnesota’s victories this season. Arizona’s Mike Smith entered the game having allowed at least four goals in each of his three starts this season. But he stopped 27 of 29 shots and blanked the Wild for all but a three-minute stretch early in the second period.

Alright Wild fans, it’s time to get our boys back to their winning ways. That trip out to the west coast did not pan out like fans or the team would have liked it to, but with the State of Hockey behind them, I’m sure the Wild is ready to get back at it.

Ducks Rally Past Wild 2-1 For 4th Straight Win

After 44 frustrating minutes of scoreless hockey against the stingy Minnesota Wild, only one thought came to Andrew Cogliano when he broke in alone on goalie Darcy Kuemper. “Yeah, I’d better score now,” the speedy Ducks forward said.

Wild Blog: Darcy Kuemper, A Rising NHL Star

WOW! That is the only word I have to describe how the Wild pulled off two shutouts in a row against the Colorado Avalanche — a team that won the Central Division last year, a team we faced in the first round of the playoffs, a team we had to battle to beat in game 7 at their rink in overtime! To say I’m impressed with how this year’s Wild team has started the season would be the understatement of the year.
