Let’s recap your weekend, shall we?
The Timberwolves lost their 14th and 15th in a row Friday and Saturday night.
The Wild were outscored a combined 7-2 in losses to Nashville and Chicago, and have now lost five in a row and 11 of their last 13.
Gopher men’s basketball blew a 9-point lead with less than 8 to play at Michigan and lost their fourth in a row.
Men’s hockey was swept in Michigan, too, and has now lost three of four.
The most fitting summary of the Minnesota Wild at the midpoint of their schedule came from defenseman Ryan Suter minutes after their latest flat performance.

Many metro school districts closed their doors today due to severe windchill….
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.
Kevin Connauton had a goal and an assist and Sergei Bobrovsky made 28 saves to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Minnesota Wild 3-1 on Wednesday night. With the game knotted at 1 in the third, Columbus scored a power-play goal at 5:57. Cycling the puck, Connauton slid a pass to David Savard at the top of the left circle. His hard one-timer beat goalie Darcy Kuemper stick side inside the near post.
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 fans hoping to see Ryan Suter in action Wednesday night got some disappointing news. Suter had played 153 consecutive games with the Wild, but was held out Wednesday because of “mump-like” symptoms.
Jason Zucker and Jason Pominville scored improbable goals to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night. Darcy Kuemper stopped 18 shots after allowing four goals in each of his last two starts. Minnesota has won seven of 10.
Minnesota Wild defenseman Marco Scandella has been fined by the NHL for an illegal check to the head of St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie. The hit occurred in the first period of their game on Saturday, when Scandella was assessed a minor penalty.
Vladimir Tarasenko scored the lone shootout goal, and the St. Louis Blues rallied to beat the Minnesota Wild 3-2 on Saturday night. It was Tarasenko’s second post-regulation winner in two nights. He scored in overtime on Friday to give St. Louis a victory over Edmonton.
The defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings were in St. Paul on Wednesday to play the Minnesota Wild. It was the second meeting of the year between the two clubs. Los Angeles won the previous meeting on Oct. 19 by a score of 2-1.
