Wild Survive Jets – Zucker Gets Two

PAUL, Minn. — Jason Zucker scored twice, giving Minnesota’s lagging power play a lift with his first goal and getting one later just after leaving the penalty box, and the Wild hung on to beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Thursday night.

How Good Does the Maple Leafs’ Hutchinson Feel Right Now?

This was Michael Hutchinson’s second game with the Toronto Maple Leafs. In his first game, he gave his team a chance to win; but, in the second game, he made no mistake. Nothing got past him. Only playing because the Maple Leafs had no better option and really no where else to turn, Hutchinson shut out the Vancouver Canucks on home ice 5-0. A Short Summary of the Game The result of this game was really never in question. All-star bound Auston Matthews had a goal and two assists, while th...

Maple Leafs’ News & Notes: Andersen, Rumours & Pettersson Out

Although Frederik Andersen, nursing a groin injury, finally took part in a Toronto Maple Leafs’ practice, he won’t start in Saturday’s game against the Vancouver Canucks. Andersen did say hopefully, “It’s getting close.” He also noted that he has made good progress over the past few days and was obviously ready to practice. He was “feeling positive.” Also positive, but in a different way, head coach Mike Babcock was positive that “Ontario Guy” Michael Hutchinson would start his second-stra...

All-Star Snub: Wild’s Zach Parise

On Jan. 2nd, the National Hockey League announced the rosters for the All-Star weekend festivities in San Jose. Fans in Minnesota expected to see Zach Parise’s name on the Central Division roster and represent the Minnesota Wild later this month. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. Parise was snubbed of an All-Star spot even though he is deserving of one. In 38 games played, he has recorded 35 points (18 goals, 17 assists), including a game-winner yesterday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. He’s ...

Maple Leafs Lose, but Nylander Scores & Non-All-Star Marner Shines

What a difference a month makes. On Dec. 1, the Toronto Maple Leafs went into St. Paul and beat the Minnesota Wild 5-3 on Nazem Kadri’s tie-breaking goal. On Thursday afternoon, the same Wild team came into Toronto and beat the Maple Leafs 4-3 on Zach Parise’s tie-breaking goal. Perhaps more interesting, is that William Nylander scored his first goal of the season. I say interesting because, just prior to the Dec. 1 game against the Wild, coach Mike Babcock broke the news to his team that ...

Wild Continue Skid, End 2018 on Losing Note

It was a frustrating New Year’s Eve in the State of Hockey as the Pittsburgh Penguins flew into town and crashed the Minnesota Wild’s party. This left the Wild five points out of the second wild card spot after suffering a 3-2 loss to the Penguins, the 11th in their last 15 games. It’s a scary time in Minnesota for hockey fans who are witnessing a team that can’t seem to play consistent hockey for 60 minutes up and down the ice. Though the score Sunday night did not go in the Wild’s favor,...

Radulov’s OT Goal Lifts Stars Past Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Alexander Radulov was at the end of his shift and tired, but he was on the other side of the ice from the bench when he entered the offensive zone with the puck and time winding down in overtime. Radulov’s decision to stay on the ice instead of going to the bench for a change paid off in a big way for the Dallas Stars. The veteran forward scored with 10 seconds on the clock in overtime to give Dallas a 2-1 win against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. “It was either change ...

NHL Hat Tricks History & Fun Facts

A hat trick is one of the NHL’s rarest achievements with only 81 during the 2017-18 season, or roughly one in 6.4 percent of games. That’s more rare than a shutout, with 144 in 2017-18, or one in 11.3 percent of games, or a shorthanded goal, of which there were 211 last season, or one in 16.6 percent of games. Of the 7,552 goals scored last season, 250, or 3.3 percent, were scored in a hat trick. The greatest player of all-time, Wayne Gretzky, had 50 regular season hat tricks in his career, or o...

Flyers Hire Chuck Fletcher as New GM

PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Flyers hired Chuck Fletcher as their general manager on Monday in hopes that he can resuscitate one of the worst teams in the NHL. Fletcher, who will replace the fired Ron Hextall, had been working as a senior adviser to the New Jersey Devils after spending the last nine seasons as GM of the Minnesota Wild. The Wild had only two playoff series victories under Fletcher, a 25-year veteran of NHL management, and did not renew his contract in April. They went 15-29 in...

Top 5 Father-Son Duos in NHL History

Father-son bloodlines are deeply rooted in the NHL. And with every passing NHL Draft, it seems there’s high-end talent continuing to be passed-on. It’s a family tradition. Fathers teach their sons the little things that it takes to be an NHL athlete. They benefit from their knowledge, their connections, their coaches and often their financial well being. Scouts know that sons of NHLers have been coached by their fathers–NHLers. While being the son of an NHL player doesn’t make a better player, i...
