Minnesota Wild

Minnesota Wild Get A Convincing Win

Minnesota WildThe first period was pretty even last night against Nashville until the last 5 minutes when the Wild got 2 to take the lead 2-1. From there they never looked back racking up 5 goals before giving up 2 later in the third to give Nashville a respectable loss.

I’m not sure Harding is quite all he’s cracked up to be and I want to believe he is, but…maybe he’s an unhappy backup. There are trade rumors in any case. Big kid, but he just doesn’t turn into a wall and never has that I can remember. I hear a lot of announcers talk about him as an up and coming (for his sake I truly hope he is) but I haven’t seen it. Maybe it’s like any trade talk though sometimes it’s motivation to stay, sometimes it’s motivation to make your mark with the new team. Best of luck to him no matter what happens though.

The Wild have won 5 straight and are now 13-12-3, while giving everyone a reason to cheer. I’m getting jittery to be honest. I live in Northern California and woke up this morning to snow coming down. That, to me, is a good omen. The smell of snow is the smell of hockey. So, I’m going to jump out on a limb and say this: The Wild are going to make the playoffs if they can stay more or less healthy. Remember they have won many times already this year without Havlat, Sykora, Bouchard, Burns…that’s a hefty chunk of offense. Good trades by GM Chuck Fletcher means the State of Hockey is going to remain just that, + Offense.

  1. Todd Richards is a good coach, I was really upset when we lost him. Considering this is the first GM/Coaching change for your team, it may just take a little while to adjust.
