MNSOTA wrote up the game preview and I will be on the post-game article which (spoiler alert) will have a ton of prospect news in it.  So the Wild felt a little relief after their win over New Jersey ok, that's nice...but they're in last place.  Now the Wild get to face the club that is arguably the surprise team in the season in the Islanders who have learned how to play strong defensive hockey under coach Barry Trotz.  The goalie rotation has worked out pretty well for the Islanders and since Lehner played yesterday against Colorado in the Isles' 4-3 OT win, my guess is Greiss gets the start against the Wild.  Not sure if Boudreau figures Dubnyk can handle a back to back because he wasn't tested all that often against New Jersey.  Enjoy and discuss...

I'm not sure BB even comprehends what "goalie rotation" means and what are the implications when it's been carried out properly.

 

Surprised to see Granny struggling so much with scoring; in yesterday's game he seemed to make nothing but good moves in the offensive zone.

 

Don't know what's happened to Zucker but obviously not meeting the expectations so far.

 

This is BB's 3rd season and essentially the offensive corps have stayed the same the whole time. Why has it been so difficult for him to find line combos that work and stick to those? Constantly shuffling the lines like Yeo in his prime...*oops*..."prime", hah...

I hope the Wild go in there and take their damn heads off.  I cannot believe I found a thread here that is NOT FLYERS.

Big, bruising, opportunistic team with good goaltending.
Much like the Wild would face if matched with Winnipeg.....and on the road too.

 

Looking forward to seeing what the 'new look' boys in green n white can do against such a team.

 

And I really hope Boudreau leaves lines together for more than a game or two.

Gotta let the boys develop chemistry!

 

If the Wild can utilize speed, maybe they have a shot. You can expect the Islanders, especially if things don't go their way, to resort to the extreme physical play and bully tactics.... Minnesota's 4th line will have their hands full today.

 

Go Wild GO!!

It was the same way with Yeo, Torchetti to a degree after he 'evaluated' the team and things got right back to the same old scrambled egg line changes I've been griping about for too long.

 

So... I put that on Fletcher (over time) seeing as BB is facing the same old crud. Now with Fenton? It's still going on. SOme put it on the players, I put it on Leipold (whom I put it on long, long ago after seeing the same old crap take place when Yeo was making stupid player decisions.) For me it's been on Leipold ever since and I don't see it changing in the future unless Liepold sells the team. Even at that we saw the same dismal 'economical teams' out of Naegele and to a good degree with the North Stars dating back to god knows when.

EEK did some good work at the start of the game, rescuing the puck from danger in his own end, skated it up, and even came up with a scoring chance.

Maybe there is hope for him yet....

The other team sucks **** and the other team seems to be a very well organized team.

Suter with zero intention to put Nelson on the wall or take the puck from him - pathetic!

I don't know who's counting the shots but he/she must be high: only 15-9 to the Islanders. We barely even saw the offensive zone!

Do you mean Islanders?

 

Anyway, I just finished today's shift of fixing first world problems. Per LIG, the only guys really playing are Ek and Dubnyk.

The Wild had a better 3rd period, but too many players sleepwalking through the first two periods.  #3, #29, #16 were notoriously lazy through those first two periods to me.  On the flipside, Eriksson Ek was outstanding and I felt that line was arguably the team's best from start to finish.  Kunin also was decent, but Eriksson Ek showed poise, good strength and some jump in his skates.  Dubnyk played well enough IMO to give this team a chance to win.  I have a full game recap an Iowa Wild report and a ton of prospect news as I promised earlier.  Enjoy!

Tough, tough loss against a very good, lock down, grinding team in the NY Islanders.

Too little too late towards the end, but the Isles netminder, Thomas Greiss, came up large when he needed to.
Minnesota showed flashes of a faster looking team, but the passing was off and it was like slogging through tar for them, it seemed, whenever they had to navigate Islander traffic in the neutral zone and the offensive zone.

 

Team flies back now to the Midwest, and home, and open a four game stretch where, hopefully, some home cookin can come into play.
Philadelphia and New Jersey are first up Tues and Fri of this coming week.
