This was another terrific game from start to finish. The Wild outworked and outplayed the Ducks virtually all game long. The Ducks gave the Staal line lots of time and spaced and they killed them in the process. We can bet the Blues will be playing Minnesota a lot tighter. I have a full game recap, an extended Iowa Wild report and prospect upd
Funny how things change. Now Granny is the Wild's go-to guy, a few years back he was widely ridiculed in the dead and buried Wild boards for not living up to expectations.
There was some talk of Wild acquiring Nylander. Would he and Granlund, add Zucker to that line, create a monstrous scoring line? They might during the regular season but come the playoffs... nah, probably too small and weak of a line. This is better.
Good for Stalock and for us too. We need two goalies
They interviewed Boudreau before the road trip and he said as much. That they aren't viewing it as a long road trip. They play a game or two, come back home to family and friends then head back out... Because of that it's not as draining.
