Minnesota is hardly a marquee place in major professional sports, a midsized market in the middle of the country best known on the coasts for the length and extremity of its winters. In the NHL, though, there’s evidence mounting to the contrary. Thomas Vanek was the latest free agent to pick the Wild, two summers after Zach Parise and Ryan Suter jolted the league by coming as a package deal.
Jason Pominville had a natural hat trick in the third period, and the Minnesota Wild beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1 in an exhibition game on Monday night.
Brandon Sutter scored his second goal of the game 2:23 into overtime to give the Pittsburgh Penguins a 3-2 exhibition victory over the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night. Sutter beat Ilya Bryzgalov with a backhander in overtime. Sutter opened the scoring in the first period with a power-play goal. Oskar Sundqvist also scored for Pittsburgh (1-2-0).
The Wild started training camp this weekend, and their season opener is just two and a half weeks away. It is a season filled with promise and high expectations after the team’s exciting run to the Western Conference semifinals a year ago. David McCoy sat down with Zach Parise to talk about their Stanley Cup goals, their brutal schedule, and who Parise predicts is about to have a breakout season.
They gather in Edina now, ready to start focusing on what is around the corner – training camp for hockey. It seems early, but this group is dedicated and determined. It is a who’s who of Minnesota talent.
