It’s a Festivus Miracle!

Festivus. Normally on this day the Wild give me ample grievances to air. But not this year. Let’s look back at some of the miracles from the last year:

February 13: The Wild fired Mike Yeo. Hold on. It’s not what you think. This is a miracle because it put Yeo out of his misery. I’m not a Yeo hater; I love the guy. He’ll be a great head coach in the NHL, but it clearly didn’t work out here.

February 21: The Wild win their Stadium Series game. This game capped off four straight wins under John Torchetti. It was a route of the Blackhawks on national TV, and they overcame the loss of Jason Zucker, who was injured by a dirty hit in the game.

April 9: The Wild made the playoffs. The Wild loss five straight to end the season, but still made the playoffs.

April 22: The Wild won a playoff game. This was their last win of the 2015-16 season. In overtime in Dallas, no less. They lost at home two days later to end their season.

May 7: The Wild hire Bruce Boudreau. The Wild snagged highly regarded coach Bruce Boudreau, who was fired 8 days before by the Ducks.

October 15: The Wild Win! The Wild won their second game of the season. They all said Boudreau couldn’t win with the Wild. Checkmate, haters.

December 22: The Wild Win! This game marked the Wild’s 9th straight win. Boudreau threatened to kiss his sister.

What are your miracles from the past year?
