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.

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.

Wild Blog: How Wild Was That Opener?

The Wild simply outplayed the Colorado Avalanche all night long. They were faster, better with the puck and a lot of fun to watch. Nobody saw that shutout coming.

Wild Blog: 2014-15 Season Preview

When we last saw the Minnesota Wild they were skating off the ice stunned after losing in overtime to Chicago 2-1 as the Blackhawks took the series in six games. While the sudden impact of the season being over may have hurt initially, fans could take solace in knowing that the Wild had their best playoff showing since their run to the Western Conference Finals in 2003.

Wild Blog: Vanek’s 3-Year Signing

It was the worst kept secret in all of hockey. Over the last year the hot rumor in the NHL was that Thomas Vanek would play for the Minnesota Wild once he became a free agent. That rumor became reality on Tuesday as Minnesota signed Vanek to a three year contract worth $19.5 million. With the deal signed, it ends a year that was a long journey for Vanek.

Wild Blog: Wild Select Right Wing On Quiet First Night Of The Draft

The best way to describe the 2014 NHL Draft is forward heavy. If you need a center or a wing there is a good chance you can get one in this draft. That’s exactly what the Minnesota Wild did Friday night as they selected Alex Tuch with the 18th pick overall in the 2014 NHL Draft. Otherwise it was a pretty quiet night for Minnesota.
