Minnesota Wild v Colorado Avalanche - Game Seven

Wild Blog: Back On The Bandwagon?

Alright Wild fans, are you back on the bandwagon yet? I, of course, never got off. But was last night’s win enough to get you back to believing in this team? It was enough for WCCO-TV reporter Rachel Slavik, who sent me the following text after last night’s game:

Wild Blog: Wild Acquire Goaltender, Still A Lot Of Work To Do

On Jan. 2, the Minnesota Wild defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs by a score of 3-1. The hope at the time was that winning the first game in 2015 would be a springboard to another playoff berth much like last year, when Minnesota defeated Buffalo in their first game of 2014. Instead, the Wild have lost six-straight games and find themselves eight points out from the final playoff spot.

Wild Blog: Calling Out An SOS

After watching Tuesday’s massacre in Pittsburgh, I actually have a lot of sympathy for the entire Minnesota Wild team. You can see they’re defeated, they hold their heads down and they’re beat well before they even step on the ice.

Wild Blog: Wild Start Off New Year With A Victory

The month of December was not kind to the Minnesota Wild. During the month the Wild went 4-5-3 and found themselves ranked 11 out of 14 teams in the Western Conference, and seven points out of a playoff spot.

Wild Blog: A Win Needed in Winnipeg

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.

Wild Blog: Wild Vs. Blackhawks – So Close, Yet So Far

I honestly believe the Wild had Tuesday night’s game won until a questionable hooking penalty on Erik Haula put Chicago on the power play in the last five minutes of a tie game. That shift in momentum was just what the Hawks needed.

Wild Blog: Bouncing Back In Boston

Whew! I’m not sure how the rest of you Wild fans are doing today, but I’m feeling a bit worn out. Monday night felt like a big hit to the gut with that pathetic performance by the Wild in the third period at Madison Square Garden.

Wild Blog: Home Ice Advantage

For this year’s Wild team, home ice advantage isn’t just a saying you’ll hear on their TV commercials, it’s really happening.
The first two games they played at Xcel Energy Center this year were shutouts, and on Saturday they killed Tampa Bay by a score of 7-2. There’s no question the Wild seem to do better in St. Paul where they’ve got 18,000 screaming fans in their corner.

Wild Blog: Time For Some Home Cooking

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.
