Recap: Wild demolishes Jets, starts homestand with 7-1 win

Photo by Bruce Kluckhohn/NHLI via From start to finish, this was all Minnesota. For the Minnesota Wild, their wins throughout the season have been a little worrisome. Of course, you can just scoff that as silly nonsense, being worried about a team that is on the top of the Central Division; but whether it was their almost weekly multi-goal comeback win, or somehow getting outshot and letting Cam Talbot collect all the scraps that the opposing team throws at him. Nothing felt consistent or sustainable. So when the Wild hosted the Winnipeg Jets on Friday afternoon and...

Gamethread: Wild vs. Jets (2:30 p.m.)

The rivalry gets reignited this afternoon. The Minnesota Wild and Winnipeg Jets are natural rivals, since the latter came back into the league 10 years ago. Battling between the borders every so often does that and now with the two teams really going for the same top spot in the Central, it only makes these games that more intense. Wild vs. Jets When: 2:30 p.m. CT Where: Xcel Energy Center TV: Bally Sports North, BSWI, TSN3 Radio: KFAN 100.3 FM The lineup is expected to say the same for the Wild, with the only potential switch being Calen Addison coming in for Jordie Benn, to...

Photo by Bruce Kluckhohn/NHLI via It’s going to be a fun little afternoon delight. Get your turkey leftovers on your sandwich and get ready for this post-lunch game between hopeful cross-border rivals as the Minnesota Wild and Winnipeg Jets face each other for the second time this season. The first game—the Wild’s third game of the season—was a classic Minnesota comeback match where they scored two goals in the final five minutes of regulation to then climb back on the haunches of Joel Eriksson Ek’s hat trick to win it in overtime. It was one of the most...

I’m thankful for in-person Wild hockey

I’m thankful for in-person Wild hockey

Photo by Elsa/ Thanksgiving has come and gone, but it’s always good to be thankful for hockey, especially Wild hockey. It was a frigid and windy night in Newark on Wednesday. With the wind blowing in my face after walking out of the automatic rotating door at the airport, I had one mission in mind: Get to the game. The plane arrived right on time, and I had plenty of time to get to the Prudential Center, but the excitement was swelling up like a nasty bruise from a hard slapshot or an aggressive slash. It was hard to contain the giddiness that I found sitting in my...

No time to prepare for the Devils didn't stop Wild goalie Cam Talbot on bizarre night

The game with the Devils was delayed when the Wild bus caught in New York traffic. But the only thing goalie Cam Talbot lost was his pregame routine.

4 Things: Takeaways from Wild’s patient win over Devils

Photo by Elsa/ A strong start led to a close finish. The Minnesota Wild eventually cleaned up their act and snuck out a shootout win over the New Jersey Devils. Here’s 4 Things on that adventure: 1 — Cam Talbot is able to seal up any defensive concerns the Wild have, for now. The only reason they were even able to earn any points, let alone two, was because of the man in between the pipes. Cam Talbot was simply calm and collected the entire hour of action that led to even more fantastic goal preventions in overtime and shutout the three Devils players that they sent...

Recap: Cam Talbot and the posts down Devils 3-2 in shootout

Photo by Andy Marlin/NHLI via 40 saves and perfect in the shootout, Wild netminder stands tall At least for tonight, it felt like the Cam Talbot of last year was back in the building. Instead of giving up early goals that make it an uphill battle from the start for the whole squad, Talbot stood tall for more than an entire game. If Talbot wasn't the star of the game, it was the posts and crossbar who made enough appearances to have their highlight package; damon severson is the only new jersey devil to beat cam talbot tonight but he's hit the post both times here in...

The Minnesota Wild return to Prudential Center in New Jersey for the first time in two seasons on Wednesday to play an improved Devils squad. | Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports Questions loom around Minnesota roster. It was a rollercoaster weekend for the Minnesota Wild, as the top team in the Central Division played two of the best teams in the league in back-to-back fashion, dropping a pair of high scoring affairs to Florida and Tampa Bay.
