Alright Wild fans, I know the past few games have not been fun to watch, but let’s not all jump ship just yet.
Minnesota Wild star Zach Parise has a concussion that will keep him out indefinitely. Parise did not travel with the Wild on their three-game road trip, starting Thursday in Ottawa. Coach Mike Yeo confirmed the diagnosis to reporters after the team’s morning skate, calling the injury “obviously a big blow” to the Wild. Parise was hurt Tuesday during a 4-1 defeat by Pittsburgh. Yeo said the concussion came on during the course of the game.

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.
Jason Zucker had two goals, and the Minnesota Wild routed the Tampa Bay Lightning 7-2 on Saturday night.
Even though it’s the middle of October and snow isn’t on the ground (yet), hockey season is officially here. In Minnesota, the Wild is off to a 2-0 start and has yet to allow a goal, shutting out Colorado 5-0 in its home opener and then going to Colorado last Saturday and winning 3-0.
Darcy Kuemper stopped 30 shots for his second straight shutout of high-scoring Colorado and Jason Zucker scored his first goal since January, helping the Minnesota Wild beat the Avalanche 3-0 on Saturday night.
The Minnesota Wild could not have started the season stronger. This game was so good they found themselves acknowledging afterward they probably won’t be able to repeat 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.
