Punchless Wild Ponder End to 6 Year Playoff Streak

As the Minnesota Wild crawled to the end of this fruitless season, there was no more fitting way to finish. Back-to-back blanks. The consecutive shutouts by Boston and Dallas gave the Wild a total of 11 games without a goal in 2018-19, pushing them to 27th in the NHL in scoring out of 31 teams. Their 210 goals were more than 100 fewer than league leader Tampa Bay, 40 fewer than they had in 2017-18 and their lowest total in five years. “If it’s not addressed, then we have problems,” said...

No Playoffs For The Minnesota Wild

from Dan Mizutani of the Pioneer Press, For the first time since Zach Parise and Ryan Suter signed matching 13-year, $98 million contracts on July 4, 2012, the Wild have failed to make the playoffs. That much was guaranteed Tuesday night despite the fact that the Wild earned a dominant 5-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets. “It’s tough,” Marcus Foligno said. “We played a really good game. It was just too little, too late in the season. We had a lot of chances at home to play like this an...

The Canadiens’ Sneaky Snipers

With two wins in three nights the Montreal Canadiens earned their way back into the playoff picture this week. Shea Weber, who had a goal in a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers and the 4-0 shutout of the New York Islanders, and Brendan Gallagher, who also scored against the Flyers, aren’t exactly unassuming characters, but they’ve quietly become two of the NHL’s biggest snipers. At or near the top of each player’s respective positional goal-scoring charts, they’re coming through when the...

Playoff Hopes Fading For The Minnesota Wild

from Brian Murphy of the Pioneer Press, Accountability? Marcus Foligno is demanding it from people above the pay grade of a fourth-line grinder. Urgency? Bruce Boudreau is out of answers for the Wild’s woeful lack thereof, and he indicted his players without naming names. Scoring? Zach Parise would just like to have the puck. What the Wild want and what they are able to give are miles apart at a crucial juncture of their fading season. Thursday night’s listless 4-1 loss to the...

Parise Opens Up About Devils & Wild

It’s been almost seven years since Zach Parise left the New Jersey Devils for the Minnesota Wild, signing a monster 13-year, $98 million dollar deal. The fans haven’t forgotten, booing him every time he touches the puck or his name is announced. He expects it. He understands the fans loyalty to the team, and he’s totally okay with it. Following his last visit to the Prudential Center on Feb. 9 Parise even found a way to joke about it. “I was expecting it. It’s been that way ever since (I left). ...

Want the Wild to rebuild and start over? It's harder -- and riskier -- than you might think

The Wild will have a week off for the All-Star break starting Thursday and will arrive at the unofficial midpoint (50 games played is not half of 82) in a familiar position. The Wild is very much in the mix for a playoff spot — a little better than a coin flip, depending on where you look at probabilities — but Minnesota clearly isn't one of the NHL's very best teams. Top 16? Possibly. Top five? No chance. This middle ground has defined much of the last seven seasons (counting this one) since th...
