Wild posts comeback victory over Boston

One hour before the Wild had to put Monday’s Madison Square Garden meltdown officially in the rearview mirror, Zach Parise said it was imperative for the Wild to know that “mentally if you’re in the right place” Monday’s 3-0 blown third-period lead should have no impact on Tuesday’s game against the Boston Bruins. Blown leads happen, and Parise promised, “We’ll be...

11. Minnesota Wild at Boston Bruins. Zach Attack Is Back Jack!

Minnesota seems like one of those weird, sneaky teams. You don’t really hear about them because they’re Minnesota. Their jerseys look like Christmas is always on its period and outside of throwing Scrooge McDuck’s vaults of coins at Zach Parise they haven’t really done anything with their franchise. Most people hear about the Wild because they are the “Not North Stars...

Video: Chris Kreider ejected for boarding Jonas Brodin

Rangers forward Chris Kreider received a five-minute major and a game misconduct after boarding Jonas Brodin. It appeared that Brodin slowed up near the line, but Kreider drove through the Wild defenseman and sent him dangerously into the boards. It’s pretty interesting to hear the officials discussing the hit and ultimately deciding to toss Kreider.

Game 9: Rebound against the Wild

The Minnesota Wild are in town tonight to take on our New York Rangers. These aren’t the Wild you’re used to though, this club has allowed just nine goals (22.2 shots against/game) this season. Darcy Kuemper already has three shutouts (and an unsustainable .967 SV%), and the team plays incredible defense. The good news: Even […] The post Game 9: Rebound against the Wild appeared...

Zucker leads balanced Wild scoring in decisive win

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The speed had flashed before, the scoring touch evident from Jason Zucker throughout the early part of his NHL career with the Minnesota Wild.

Wild’s Jason Zucker Takes Skate To The Face, Escapes Without Injury (GIF)

The scene on the ice could have been much, much worse, though, as the skate of Los Angeles Kings forward Kyle Clifford struck Zucker in the face on the play. Fortunately, it looks like Clifford’s blade...
