Good distribution of goals by most lines.  Shows balance, which is good.     Marleau went over and shook every players hand individually - CLASS ACT he is.  Nice to see the fans give him a standing O when record tie was announced.

Really good win tonight. Nice to see the handshakes with Marleau also. 

Do you think Burns wife looks at him and tells him that the beard is a Great Look?  I get growing it out, but why would you want to take the 'Thornton Approach?'  It is really hideous and is likely full of old food and bugs

I agree. It was a good win.  I was surprised to see the handshakes with Marleau. Nice to see that.

I am biting a towel while watching him get a few of his garbage goals.  Towel has a piece of wood in the middle - TAKING THE PAIN

Oh C'mon...Even you have to admit his last 2 were good ones. :P

I'm sure all the teams the Sharks play around now are doing that out of respect. :)

I agree. Last 3 games the 4th line has an outstanding play with 12 points.

EmptyShelf is going to go down swinging I think. 😆

I am completing a Cost Benefit Analysis upon Goals/$, then Assists/$, Point/$, Whining/$, Insubordination/$, and Stanley Cups/$.  I have computed the results and still found the Garden Gnome to be a Totally Wasted Investment whose ROI does NOT meet expectations.

Hopefully the 4th line will continue to play that way including playoffs. Commentators even said that  the 4th line it does not look like as a 4th line but like the top one in their production. Just dreaming that hopefully we will pass the 1st round this playoffs season if all our 4 lines will be productive. For many years our weakest part during playoffs were very low production. I think also, this specific season we have much more nicer goals in comparison we had before in previous seasons. Kaprizov reached Gaborik's record in points during a rookie season and he needs one more goal to reach him in goals in that season.

Nice also was to see interviews after the game for our 3 youngsters - Sturm; Kahkonen and EEK. Nice goals for both forwards tonight and a pretty good goaltending ( Kaapo was able to stop 26 out of 28 shots).

The team played very solid defense. Kähkönen had to face only maybe three to four shots from obvious defensive lapses. Not very promising that two of them went in, but much better anyways. We'll probably see how he plays in the next back to back. I like our lines from a confusing the opponent's coach point of view. From the results of the last few games, the opponent should put his best defensemen against Sturm, Bonino and Parise :hithead: Who should they try to cover? The line with Kaprizov? The line with Fiala? The line that's scored more recently? If only we had a 1C, we'd be really hard to handle.

Assuming we get to the playoffs (🙄)_, it will be a bit embarrassing to only have 4 attendees on our board?  God forbid MNSOTA cannot make it post-bender, we will be down to 'the three legs of the tri-pod' only....

This place probably cleared out when word got out that we're a bunch of old fogies with AARP cards. 😜  Tho being north of 50 and a card carrying member myself, it's nice to know that I'm not the oldest fart on this board.

 

Another fun win by the Wild last night: caught the last two periods at the local watering hole. It's nice to see the good guys banking points against the likes of the Sharks and the Yotes: good teams are supposed to put away teams in their rear view mirror. And dare I say it? The Wild are looking like a pretty darn good team these days. Kaprisov has long term superstar written all over him.

 

The way I see it, we're two boat anchors away from being a legit Cup contender.

True....But we have spent years being quite DAFT in this regard (playing keep away along the boards - we are slow learners)

Ah, yes... my blood pressure would rocket up every time I saw all three Wild forwards doing a perpetual cycle-jerk behind the net. Now that #97 has proven that he can cycle the puck all by himself, it's only a matter of time before his English gets good enough to chew out any imbeciles who insist on staying magnetically attached to the boards the entire shift.

Let's go Wild? The things you learn here. From boobery to swinging and Russian chanting. Whatever it takes to get the Cup. We elderly people don't have the time to wait for it forever.

 

I think the youngsters of today don't appreciate the possibility of having a dialogue. They follow Twitter and whatnot, where it is opinion followed by like or a dislike, or Youtube or TikTok where it is just a monologue by someone. No chance to have a discussion or an argument.

 

I miss the days of the old Wild forum, when there was a lot of people, people who probably are by now spending their last days in some home for elderly people, getting strangely agitated when they hear the Wild score on KFAN, but not remembering why. It is what it is. If one wants to have a discussion nowadays, one needs to find a reception for that:

Nice, that we have this forum to make some discussions even among elderly people as well as the young one too. Better to bring our opinions and our emotions here regarding our team than to carry them inside the body till the rest of our life and to feel extremely alone. 

Actually, the phrase Let's go Wild translated on Russian language as Let's go crazy.

After reading a nice thread " Marleau makes history tonight" by Brewin Flames I think it was a huge honor to handshake our team's players with Marleau, because during that game last Saturday he was able to reach NHL record which hold before by Gordie Howe on 1767 games played during a regular season.

It was nice to have Suter lead the Wild to congratulate Marleau. That's a superhuman achievement by Marleau. Never ill or banged up, or is but able to play through it.

Really nice site !! Thanks :)
Wow, Jagr played on 9 teams 😮 I never realised that.

Marleau should have an 'Iron Man achievement' award named after him.

Yes. He has a couple more impressing records.

Here are the links about his achievements:

https://records.nhl.com/records/skater-records/seasons-and-games/most-consecutive-games-played-active-streak

 

Personally for me, that our players should be very very proud to handshake with this legend. It happens once(not very often) in a lifetime.

 

It is like for me was to handshake and to talk with 2 pioneers in a cardiac surgery during my life. One of them was Dr.C.Walton Lillihei who performed 1st successful operation in the world on an opened heart by using a cross-circulation and a second was Dr. Richard Dewall who created a 1st portable bubble oxygenator using at the heart-lung machine during an opened heart surgery. Sadly, Wikipedia has a minimal info regarding 2 famous world known cardiac surgeons who were born and worked in Minnesota and even did not place any pictures of Lillihei and only one of Dewall picture on their links.

Here are the Wikipedia short links to know more about 2 famous Minnesotans, of course, who is interesting to read it:

Hats off to people like that. That's quite a lot of patients and families who these guys helped lead a better and longer life. Lillehei even a Bronze Star recipient, among all of his other accomplishments. Thanks for sharing that!
