This is literally a must win by a few goals game. ARI has literally scored 3 goals in 4 games. If they put up more then 1 goal this game I will be very worried. Hopefully the Wild get up by 2 goals right away and never let up. I am worried we might see the typical Wild and score once and then watch the Yotes put in 2 goals right after.


My guess Dubnyk is in and maybe Kuemper is in. It would be the most Minnesota Wild thing for Dubnyk to have a terrible game and Kuemper look like the second coming of Roy.

Actually, no. The Yotes only have two goals....the third goal was a shootout winner.

Will be interesting to see how the wild are without Koivu. But i tend to agree this game makes me nervous.

According to announcers, Wild is oldest team in league at 29.1 years of age.  Pittsburgh is second.  This is an albatross for the future - we can't get younger with 3-4 boat anchors.  Thanks CL and CF?!?  $hit!  And we are playing like it again in first period of our 6th game again.

About as inspiring as my work boots. Sloppy and slow, seems to be the norm. 

The team or old puck bunnies?

They look confused and disorganized.

 

I'm curious why they didn't move Ek or Greenway up to play for Koivu instead of Granlund. Granlund hasn't played center for what, two years?

Then again the last time Koivu had a replacement it was Haula and he actually did quite well.

Haha, at least the bunnies might have some use on a bad hogging expedition. This team is just awful. I think the Winnipeg series aged everyone times 10.

There just anyone who is playing inspired hockey.  I really think they need to shake up team chemistry.  Maybe pull the As and C, or make an unexpected trade?

At least Granlund shoots more in the last 9-12 months.  We need it.

Well good for him. While I think he may be overrated at times, we do need him at center.

Not so sure.  He skates like he has planks nailed to his feet and flails with his stick.

Ugly game.  The Wild still look tired, slow...even if it was the 2nd game of a back to back.  The Wild were very fortunate we were playing Arizona tonight.  Coyle and Nino have ZERO confidence right now.  I have a full game recap and a ton of prospect news, check it out!

I'm not surprised by that it was as low scoring as it was. Arizona as a team has a GAA of about 2 and combine that with neither team being able to score (both in the bottom 10).

 

A win is a win so I'll take it. Unfortunately, the Avs and Jets both got loser points tonight so the Wild didn't really gain much ground.

Thanks LIG , Agree about coming next games against Dallas and Tampa are going to be much tougher than the one last night.

And according your prospect news, it seems our prospects doing a pretty good progress - lots of production. Lodnia also is doing well (having 4 goals and 8 assists in 9 games for Niagara IceDogs in OHL).

      Wild controlled the whole game? They sure spent a lot of time in our own end.   At one point, I think in the 3rd period, the puck went whizzing down into Arizona's zone and the commentators noted how fast the ice was down there. Well yeah, the ice down there was pretty lonely... nice and cold, hardly skated on.   Giving up 32 shots on goal isn't controlling the whole game.

      Meh, the Wild certainly botched some of their opportunities but Dubnyk had to make some fantastic stops to keep us in the game.  IMO the game could've easily been 4-1 the other way too.  Granlund's goal was about as yogurt soft as you can get.

      During the game they said the Coyotes allow the fewest shots on goal, leading the league. I can't remember if that number was 23.8 or 28.3... Something like that. It was a remarkable stat to say the least.   It was also pretty clear Dubnyk kept the Wild in the game with some key saves.   I also noticed the Coyotes PP was eerily similar to how the Wild waste their time on the PP. Their players camp out on the blue line while someone skates up-ice with the puck, then drop it back 20-30 feet to a trailing player, who attempts to weave across the line pushing the puck over to someone along the boards... YAWN... Then spend most their time trying not to cough it up and if they get a shot from the perimeter they take it. Another yawn.   With the Coyotes only having 2 five-on-five goals so far this year the Wild should have easily steam-rolled them but instead made the game look like a really difficult challenge.
