What happens after the All-Star Break for the Minnesota Wild?

It has been an extremely up-and-down past few weeks for the Minnesota Wild and it’s that time of the season where they need to get on a bit of a run. The All-Star break could not have come at a better time. The team had been struggling greatly on offense, and relying on defense and goaltending has been somewhat of a norm in recent weeks. The Minnesota Wild are one point behind...

Jared Spurgeon is one of the most underrated players in the NHL

Recently it was announced by the Minnesota Wild that they signed defenseman Jared Spurgeon to a four year deal worth $20.75 million. The undersized player is the unsung hero of the Wild as he has played most of his time this year with Ryan Suter, the big ticket signing from a few years ago. So, what prompted the Wild to lock up a player that seems so pedestrian? Spurgeon's alright…...

Video: Johnny Oduya cross-checks Zach Parise in the back of the head

Fresh off Brandon Dubinsky cross-checking Sidney Crosby in the neck, Johnny Oduya provided another example of the type of plays the league needs to crack down on by cross-checking Zach Parise in the back of the head. The first check is fine, but the second into Parise’s head while he is down on the ice is way over the line. Oduya received a minor penalty on the play, but the NHL...

WATCH: Evgeni Malkin wins game with goal of the year
