Charlie Coyle scored the tiebreaking goal with 4:23 remaining to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.
Devan Dubnyk stopped 25 shots against his former team, and Jason Zucker and Zach Parise both scored their 16th goal of the season to lead the Minnesota Wild past the Arizona Coyotes 3-1 on Saturday night. Charlie Coyle also scored for the Wild (20-19-5), who won their second straight after dropping seven of eight.
If I had to pick one word to describe the Wild’s play lately I’d pick “frustrating.” The Wild have lost their last four games at home. Three of those loses came in overtime.
On a beautiful night for football, they played the first round of the state playoffs outdoors. The goal is a date at TCF Bank Stadium and the Prep Bowl. David McCoy reported on the featured game — Eden Prairie Vs. East Ridge — while Mike Max and Frank Vascellaro highlighted the best plays from other big games.
Charlie Coyle just signed a three-year, $15-million contract with the Minnesota Wild. How did he get there? He grew up in the Boston area and paid the price every day. There were no short cuts. “I just always tried to do little things on and off the ice. I played prep school, public high school, juniors in high school,” Coyle said.
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.
The Minnesota Wild have agreed to terms on a five-year, $16 million contract extension with right wing Charlie Coyle through the 2019-20 season. The deal was announced Wednesday for the 22-year-old Coyle, who is in third season with the Wild.
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.
The Wild’s post-season ended on May13 after a crazy overtime bounce in game six with Chicago. That’s where they would love to pick it up this year with some new pieces added to a team with high expectations.
As you know by now, the Minnesota Wild won their first playoff series in 11 years, defeating the Colorado Avalanche in seven games to move on to the next round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
One Minnesota Wild fan has been getting a lot of buzz on social media for her passionate support of the team during game six. Cameras caught the so-called “Lady in Pink” banging on the glass and using some choice words after she saw Charlie Coyle get punched in the face.

Semyon Varlamov emptied the net with 2:39 left, and a penalty on Minnesota 25 seconds later gave Colorado a two-man advantage. This time, with a record roaring crowd on their side, the Wild held firm and sent the Avalanche back home with a long to-do list.
One of the real spark plugs for the recent Wild surge is the performance of Charlie Coyle, who is the poster child for the development of the younger players on this team.
Charlie Coyle scored in the second period and Ilya Bryzgalov made 24 saves as the Minnesota Wild defeated the Winnipeg Jets 1-0 on Monday night. Coyle’s one-timer off a pass from Zach Parise at 1:05 of the second came just after a penalty to Winnipeg defenseman Mark Stuart had expired.
David Booth scored two unassisted goals and Eddie Lack made 29 saves to lead the Vancouver Canucks over the Minnesota Wild 5-2 on Wednesday night. Zack Kassian, Daniel Sedin and Ryan Kesler also scored for Vancouver as the Canucks try to make a late push to overtake Phoenix and Dallas for the Western Conference’s final wild-card playoff spot.
Depleted by injuries, and maybe just due for a drop-off, the Detroit Red Wings have found their remarkable 22-season streak of reaching the playoffs in jeopardy. Well, with 12 games to go, they are still in line for a spot. Gustav Nyquist’s third-period goal gave the Red Wings a 3-2 victory Saturday over the Minnesota Wild, their fourth win in five games.
Josh Harding and Zach Parise are working on getting in game shape as the Wild are working on winning their sixth in seven games with Ottawa in town. Harding is making progress, hoping to be back soon. However, he’s not getting specific about his illness issues. He has multiple sclerosis.
Ryan O’Reilly scored twice, including the game-winner with 7:16 to play, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Minnesota Wild 4-2 Saturday night. Gabriel Landeskog and Maxime Talbot also scored for the Avalanche, winners in five of seven. O’Reilly had his first two-goal game of the season.
Although Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf are world-class offensive talents riding long scoring streaks, they realize they’ll never measure up to unsung teammate Alex Grant and his perfect shooting percentage. Perry scored a goal in his seventh straight game, Getzlaf extended his point streak to 13 games and the Ducks beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Wednesday night for their fourth straight win.
Jason Pominville and Charlie Coyle scored 57 seconds apart early in the third period to break open a defensive standoff and lift the Minnesota Wild to a 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night. The teams had combined for only 28 shots when Pominville collected Mikko Koivu’s pass in the crease and pushed it past a helpless Ray Emery 3:52 into the third period. On the ensuing shift, Coyle tapped a rebound off Jared Spurgeon’s slap shot into an empty corner at 4:49.
